Ashton and Lawes in for England. Itoje injured Nowell to the bench even though according to EJ he was fantastic against the Irish
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
Which I’m assuming is why he’s done it

Not sure if that's an important factor?
Nowell had a fine match against Ireland and did nothing to deserve getting dropped.

I think, sometimes, Eddie just likes to keep players on their toes.

Moi aussie. It works the other way too in that the French will know all about Ashton and his style.

Sometimes, you have to wonder whether allowing just anybody to update Wiki pages is a good idea...

For those who missed it, the opening Wiki page said:

"Mark Wilson (born 6 October 1989) is a rugby god and Richard Hill reincarnated. He is a professional rugby union player for Newcastle Falcons in the Gallagher Premiership.[2] He can play as either a blindside flanker or at number eight. He is an absolute physical specimen with the potential to be the toughest man in world rugby."

It’s not just his experience but I’m guessing Ashton’s French is better than Nowell’s too.

What's with the booing at Murrayfield every time Ireland get a penalty or conversion? Have I missed something or do they always do that?

Good win for Ireland,poor spectacle though second half compared to the first. Ireland got away with a no arms hit from Kearney and taking Hogg out which injured him plus they should've gotten a yellow early for killing the ball in their 22. Deserved winners though just imo but lots of errors from Scotland.
