Let's hope Eddie picks the right team. Not really interested in seeing many players from the 6N or AI who miss out on the Lions tour. Maybe just a sprinkle for experience

Ahh so if they're playing at home now the suggested Saxons match if it goes ahead vs Scotland may use some of the same players potentially.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

I’m similar, would like to see the fringe players though such as Earl, Malins, Lawrence, Marchant get more game time from the off though.

Given the need for Covid bubbles and all that sort of thing I'd assume that even with the lifted restrictions they'll still go for one squad for all three games. Perhaps names the inexperienced members of the squad Vs Scotland and then introduce more fringe players for the games Vs Canada and the USA.

I hope we don't include any player that played in both the ANC and the 6N. We need to look at squad depth and competition development.

Really sad that we're pulling the tour to USA. This is their only real chance to host England, who would be a massive commercial game for them. Hard for tier 2 to close the gap when we never travel to play them and let them ear money.

July 4th test in somewhere like Houston where USA have a good record of attendances, and there are no restrictions, would have been a massive game
Goooooodeeeeeyyyyy!
