Negative!!! He is in the 25 with Moon,it's big Joe v Ashton and Shields v Hughes to see who makes the cut imo.

Just seen the 25 man squad and apologies Moon and Cole swap with Genge and Williams.
Makes sense when you have 3 quality props on either side

You could argue Moon and Cole are better scrummager too and better in the tight

Good to see Cole back in the fold and in line for another Cap. He has done all the right things since being "dropped". Not surprised given Williams leaked Irish final try. Eddie would have been cross despite the win. Genge v Moon is tight call. I suspect we may see them alternate through rest of 6N (assuming no injuries).

Moon over Genge too,can fully understand his thinking though
I don't get that one. EG didn't have long enough on the field to make an impression either way, however I do highly rate Moon

Wouldn't have thought Genge v Moon was that tight a call.

Really hope it doesn't mean that Genge is injured again. Is he carrying a knock - he returned to the Tigers side with a bang but has looked a bit subdued in the last few games he played before going off to England?

Just rotation of the back ups that’s all. Whether we agree with it Jones seems to see Mako and Sinckler as his first choice props.
On the plus side both Genge and Cole could now be available for the Sarries game

We've got 6 top,top frontline props,the best choices in the world imo. Who else has our depth?! It's an attritional position plus we can chop and change according to our gameplan,Moon and Cole are our best scrummagers for me,I don't see the problem! France have a monster pack,right call for me.

I could imagine Moon and Cole coming on with 20 minutes to go. Whilst Priso and Bamba are both talented players ball in hand, they are young and it will knock their confidence getting stuffed in the scrum.

Nice to see Jonah Holmes selected in the starting fifteen against Italy. Even better to see he is on the wing.

I think its a pretty good idea to swap Nowell and Ashton, Nowell was fantastic against Ireland but Ashton has experience of playing in and against French teams
