No Cipriani, he really isn't the flavour of the month, poor lad I really feel sorry for him, what more does he have to do?

Be interesting to see how the pack goes without Dan

Not surprised Hill got called up, played really well against us at WR. Would love for us to grab him early!

Very good point and they are in great form and to be only missing one player :(

It just goes to show the declining state of the club over the last few seasons. Chuffed to see Mercer get a look in. IMO it is disappointing for the players with Int potential but on a totally selfish point, hopefully the Tigers can take advantage of the Ints and grab a few wins before the new year? I do not understand how Cips is not there? The Ford/Farrell axis has been long since sorted out by the opposition so IMO Cips would have bought another dimension to the game?

There is only room for two 10's in the squad. Ford and Farrell are both better all round outside halves than Cips IMO and in Eddie's obviously. Lozowski can also cover 10 very competently if necessary.

The person I feel sorry for is Goode. He's been England's best FB for some time and he can't get in the squad!!

Despite the injuries it is still a strong squad, just a bit worried about the props where we are lacking experience at this level.

And I had thought Mike Brown’s days were numbered. Surely Eddie should have someone else in mind for the World Cup ?

Ok. So let’s have Daley at fullback and AN Other as back-up and send Brown back to Quins.

Surely Goode or Woodward are better options than Brown. Also fail to understand how none of Kvesic, Ewers or Armand didn’t make the cut. Kvesic especially deserves a shot at openside for England.
