Haha France want to play all their games at home? Erm.... no, thank you. Talk about trying your luck!

If they’re looking for one venue, Cardiff is the obvious place. They can close the roof in bad weather and there are a number of quality hotels for the team bubbles to stay in very close to the stadium.

Bath latest club to shut training ground, might impact England squad.
Very true, we'll have to see if EJ will pick them and quarantine them prior to going in to the bubble or if he can't

How may this affect us?

Certainly if Watson is out think Steward could get looked at.

Stuart may mean Cole gets a call to see if he's willing to cover or possibly Heys gets a call up, but think that's unlikely. Other England players being missing aren't likely to affect us.

Scotland has some injury issues at hooker, which could see Jake Kerr involved again although of course his lack of game-time could still go against him

Fervently hope that any Six Nations Bubble holds firm and there are no 'social indiscretions'..............

Make sure less players from a certain North London Club are selected....

And fewer from Tigers, Bath, Newcastle and Harlequins? Or is it just rule breakers from Saracens that are a problem?

Well the stats from the Baas Baas pointed to one team in the main.....any player in any sport who ignores the protocols that allows them to continue playing should be heavily sanctioned.

Well they were all heavily sanctioned and none of them are likely to be selected for England anyway, so what's your point? Other people should have their careers restricted because they work for the same company despite having done nothing wrong themselves?

Should Billy Vunipola be dropped from the England squad because Alex Lewington broke the rules? Which Bath player should be dropped to punish De Glanville for breaking the rules?

It was meant as a light hearted quip, but you seem to of missed that....

As half the England coaching team are now isolating all rather cuckoo anyway...

Cameron Redpath called up to the Scotland squad, as Gary Graham also makes a welcome return to the international fold.

Guess we’ll see if he gets a cap, surprised he didn’t wait for England as he’s been in some EPS and I’m sure Jones will have been in contact with him.

Glad Odogwu might get a shot. Always like how NZ pick their wingers purely on form regardless of test experience. If he’s tearing it up in the premiership, give him a shot. Then it’s down to him to keep putting in the performances and being selected.

Possibly he has been told that he isn't in the running for an England spot at the moment. Doesn't really look like an Eddie Jones kind of player to me, not keen on tackling for a start. Probably a wise choice, he could be a regular for Scotland in future but I haven't seen anything to suggest he will become good enough to do the same for England.
