Good to know that George Ford is match fit. Let’s hope he avoids injury and will be available for Tigers in December.

Like it, but wonder if some parts of the team are closing on their retirement date. Love the bench, mind.

A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

I thought / hoped Genge and Stuart had done enough to earn a start, but they should provide some impact when they come on.

Who is closing in on retirement? I'd be very surprised if any of that team chose to retire by 2023, only 2 of them are 30 or over :smt017

Very fit, according to reports. Had full 15 v 15 training session and rehab included hour-long sessions in a hyperbaric chamber.

He is also studying the Aus Rugby League 10 Cameron Munster, and saying Jason Ryles, who was his coach, has been especially important. He is talking about being much sharper in attack following the RL practices. If so, would be good if he could bring that back to WR and execute it.

I fancy us for a 'W'.

A good starting team and a very strong bench. Good to see Hill and Malins getting another chance along with Stuart who is a real prospect.

Scotland v Fiji now off due to further Covid in FIji camp.

At least Nemzy will come back to us in one piece....albeit possibly post an infection.

(although there is mention of them playing a match on 5th December)

Round two today (21/11/20) , the winner of England Vs Ireland should go on to top their group - believe England will win.
Must admit I'm looking forward to Wales Vs Georgia.The Welsh side have been decidedly off colour of late and the Georgians will relish the opportunity to test out their Pack and Set Piece in general.Whilst I can't see Wales losing it could be a torrid afternoon for them whilst The Lelos are within reach and they wont go down without a fight. Incidently, should the unimaginable happen and the Georgians do pull something out of the bag - it will probably be curtains for Wayne Pivac....
Tomorrows game , Scotland Vs France is (to me) a genuine 'pick em'.Massive upturn in form for the Scots but the the French on their day can either beat anyone or lose to anyone - simply depends which France turn up , the 'sublime' or the 'ridiculous'.
Toss of a coin says the Scotch momentum continues'.

Think the which French team turns up is less likely with Edwards & Ibanez on the coaching panel, if it hadn't been for a Red Card they may well of won the Grand Slam, come the next RWC they could be favourites.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

If you were picking the Lions from Ireland, only Ryan and Lowe looked any good. Thought Doris was awful after all the press bigged him up as the next Heaslip.
