Really hope we get him back - he was immense on Saturday.

He can play for us up at Sale on the Friday and then Coley can get the bus down to Twickers on Saturday morning. Simples! :smt002

31 man squad with Williams and Sinckler too so Dan may well be released Wednesday.

Does anyone else feel a recall for Robshaw is a backward step. Surely after Saturday Jack Willis should be there

100%, maybe Willis may get a chance off the bench against Scotland. Deserves a chance at this level, such potential.

Imho if he had not picked up such a dreadful injury back end of last season he would have gone to South Africa last summer and made the 7 shirt his own

Unfortunately it's not one of mine,it was coined by Dewi "which way were his hands facing when the ball went forwards" Morris. Very good though!

Reports that returning Maro Itoje has limped out of training today.

DT "Maro Itoje limped out of England training on Tuesday after falling to the turf during a passing drill, causing concern ahead of facing Italy in the Six Nations on Saturday.

England's players were taking part in a handling exercise at Pennyhill Park, consisting of quick passes near to the posts with head coach Eddie Jones acting as defender, when Itoje noticeably grimaced after stepping off his right leg and went to ground.

The 24-year-old then limped away from the training session and was seen talking to physios on the sidelines before leaving the field."

Totally agree re Dombrandt who I saw was at 8 for Quins at the weekend.

Does anyone else notice a resemblance to a young Deano with that rolling gait and socks round his ankles

There are some fine up and coming players around. Maybe after the World Cup, some will get their chance of a regular place.

Dombrandt, Clifford, Brown, Marchant and Earle should all be in the squad, strange that Jones is suddenly not all for Quins players, maybe taking out his anger of Gustard’s departure on them.
