Re: Jones names provisional elite player squad

Considering the squad has gone up to 45 it is surprising to see Burrell miss out all together. Ashton, Brookes and Ewers might have expected to be there considering they were in Jones' first England squad. His selection looks good; there are some really mouthwatering options for theat back row and a...

Re: Brothers playing for England

The Youngs and Vunipola brothers have played in the same England side quite a few times. On 2nd November 2013 there were almost three sets of brothers playing for England at the same time: both Vunipolas started the game against Australia as did OTY, but he was replaced a minute before YBY came on. ...

Re: Manu's shoulder

Don't we also have Terrence Hepetema in the centres? I think he was signed as injury cover for Matt Smith.

For England I'd imagine Joseph would now be first choice as he played 13 in the summer tour with Eastmond next in line.

Re: Tom Dan & Ben

Also you could move Croft to lock (at a push) and have Tom Johnson in at 6.

Re: EPS + Saxons 2013 Squad

I'm torn on Billy Vunipola coming in, especially ahead of TTTE. Without doubt Vunipola will be there or thereabouts come 2015 but I do think people are getting a bit carried away. I think it might be worth holding out and bringing him in later in the year when he has matured as a player, especially...

Re: Saints game

If Salvi is back our starting line up is looking quite solid: 1. Ayerza 2. Chuter 3. Castro 4. Deacon 5. Kitchener 6. Mafi 7. Salvi 8. Crane 9. Youngs 10. Ford 11. Goneva/Tait 12. Allen/Boden 13. Smith 14. Hamilton/Morris 15. Murphy (c) With Logo injured I'd imagine Brookes has been called back from...

Re: SL's right to rest players?

Cockers said in his post match interview after the Ospreys game that it was a blocking week for England players so they would not be available.

Matt Cornwell who was signed this summer has been playing 10 for the seconds. I'd imagine he will be on the bench during the international period.
