People should watch Rising Sons: Part 5 mainly just for Gengey’s Bane impression.

Will Greenwood has done a player by player breakdown in the DT. He says of Ford;

"George Ford (Fly half, Leicester Tigers, 56 caps)

Had an indifferent season at Leicester but if England need someone to make flat passes on the gainline then he’s your man. I’d like to see his goal kicking improve by five per cent. "

Will obviously did not spend much time watching our George last season. He was outstanding in a poor team and his goal kicking second to none!!
Didn't George finish the season with both the golden boot and a better kicking percentage than Farrell?

Greenwood was a phenomenal player but isn't the best pundit. Ford on Sunday was nudging them over with ease.

He did. He also had a better tackle success rate than Farrell too.

Greenwood just doesn’t like Tigers which is strange considering it was with us he really developed into a top class player.
Ford and Farrell offer different things but both are “class” players.
Thought Ford captained England superbly on Saturday: kept his head when the going got tough, got the team together and seemed to change to plan B to ensure England closed out the game.
Amazing really, the season we had but still 6 players in the England squad.
Good luck to the whole squad.

Jack Singleton providing back row cover for this weekends game... Why bring Kvesic into the mix and not play him? Wilson also. Or am I missing out on some injuries; other than Curry?

He must have a niggle. Be surprised if the plan was to have a hooker cover the backrow. I also presume Eddie only wants player from within the 31 included and that's why no backrow cover have been called up.
