Agree Kev - but it would be nice if it were better organised. It may be as well organised as it is possible to be (an optimal solution) but it feels like a shambles. Nonetheless, I am looking forward to seeing Castro take on the Oz front row.

yes agree.. i think its more of timing and organisation than whether the game are relevant or not...

personally i thought the team got a lot out of saturday.. it also helps confidence..

but yes it could be arranged better..

Well based on this news I have to say I'm glad I can't make (yet another) Friday night game.

In all honesty (and I'm saying this with regret not malice) it's looking like next season's Season Ticket is in real doubt. Everyone has there own issues but for the following reasons it's no longer worth it for me.
1. I can't make anything other than weekend games.
2. I'm fed up of not watching players I've paid to watch whilst we prop up the RFU (and others).
3. I'm heading for unemployment.
4. My money may be better spent adding ESPN to my Sky package.
5. We keep getting wet (a bit of light hearted humour in this one)

I blame the management and coaches. If they weren't so good at spotting and nurturing talent we wouldn't be in this position!!!! :smt003

Well we could hire a bunch of journeymen Boks, wear red and black, bang a drum, wiggle our arms in a daft fashion when ever a kick is taken, wear a silly red hat, move to Watford and hire a bad tempered coach!

Well we've got the last point covered at least. Here is his match day face: :smt013

I think thats what people want... although i epxect there will still be moaning and :censored:..

the reason for the AI's is to have an England team that plays matches together and improve as a team.. its either that or come six nations we wouldn't have played together since the summer and would have start start all over again... we have the disadvantage over the southern hemisphere teams who have players playing together week in week out at super 14 level and they seem to gel better.. i have no doubt we could get a team of 22 and no more than two players are from the same club in england/france.. so we need to play as an england team regularly...

lets just suck it up and get on with it

I suspect if we'd not had the train-crash of injuries, less folks would now be complaining, me included. Its been a "perfect storm" of unavailable first picks this season.
