England manager Martin Johnson has been warned that time is running out to blood more young players like Chris Ashton and Ben Foden if they are to reach their potential by the World Cup in New Zealand next year. Dave Ellis, the Yorkshireman who has been France's defence coach for the past 10 years, said the impressive performances of Foden and Ashton on their first starts for England in France's 12-10 victory at the Stade de France on Saturday night should encourage Johnson to pick a young side for their summer tour of Australia and New Zealand. "England have to bite the bullet and throw some young players in," said Ellis, who is also assistant coach at London Irish. "They aren't far away from being a good side. They had a go when they had nothing to lose but there is no good waiting until the championship is gone to do that. "They have a tough tour ahead but they have nothing to lose in the southern hemisphere. They should give young players a go and see how they come out at the other end. Whether they have got enough time to get it right for the World Cup, only time will tell." Johnson, meanwhile, is not expected to be subject to a disciplinary investigation into his half-time and full-time comments to match referee Bryce Lawrence. Johnson, who said he was seeking clarification after England tighthead prop Dan Cole was penalised three times in the first half for collapsing the scrum, could be seen talking to Lawrence and touch judge Alain Rolland as they walked off the pitch at half-time and was engaged in another conversation with the referee just after the final whistle. "The way Bryce refs, he will be very quick on scrums," Johnson said. "I said 'that's fine if we are wrong' but I thought maybe we had them once or twice and we didn't get the penalty. That's what I said to him at half-time. "They had a very good scrum and they had us under pressure quite a few times. Our guys battled away and I just thought if we got them under pressure we should get the penalty too." Normal protocol in Test matches is for coaches not to talk directly to referees at half-time, while in the Guinness Premiership, coaches must write any issues they have on a card, which is then handed to the fourth official, who shows it to the referee. A Six Nations spokesman said that there would only be an investigation if a complaint was received from either the referee or the International Rugby Board and neither had lodged one. Meanwhile, the French Federation were forced to produce an 11th-hour replacement match programme for Saturday's contest after the original publication was withdrawn as it contained an article that was deemed by the host union to be 'too anti-English'. The flimsy replacement angered many French supporters in the 80,000-strong crowd who were hoping for a glossy souvenir of their team's Grand Slam triumph.
