Ben Youngs, who came off the bench to score the clinching try against Argentina, reviews that peformance and the build-up to Sunday's game against Georgia.

We also catch up with hooker Steve Thompson and team manager Martin Johnson, who were both involved the last time the sides met in Perth at the start of England's 2003 campaign.

The team bid farewell to Andrew Sheridan after he suffered a shoulder injury. He tells us of the next steps he'll be taking with the medics on his return home and his front row colleague Alex Corbisiero pays tribute to the departing prop.

We also get under the skin of the tournament by catching up with some of England's travelling fans over coffee in Dunedin.

Back home, we hear from scrum half James Lightfoot-Brown, part of the England Under 18 team that struck sevens gold at the Commonwealth Youth Games last weekend.

There's also a preview of all the action coming up in the RFU Championship and a key clash this Sunday will see Leeds Carnegie host early leaders Bristol Rugby.
