Good to see Hughes back and starting, big improvement to the options the team has.

It's a prety solid looking squad that now, other than Billy V and Ben Youngs coming back it's hard to see anyone breaking into it this side of the World Cup.

I hope Simmonds returns. I'd love to see him on after 50mins when the opposition are tiring.

I think Daly will figure when fit.

We're Tuilagi fit and in form, I could see him featuring before and during the World Cup, either instead of Joseph, or even at inside centre with Farrell moving to 10. The big question is whether he can recapture that form of a few seasons ago. From what I've seen on the box so far he's way off unfortunately.
I can also see T Curry featuring - less destructive than Underhill but better link man and a true open side to play against The Southern Hemisphere 7's where Robshaw has historically been found wanting.

Has he? Seem to remember he did well against McCaw in 2012

I can see Jack Willis of Wasps playing himself into the mix for the seven shirt. He has a more balanced game compared to the other contenders who all appear really strong in one area but lack in others. Although Underhill didn't look slow making that tackle against Wales and Curry (either of them) is probably a better ball carrier than many give credit for.

Daly would probably replace May and as others have mentioned a fit and firing Tuilagi would be near the team, probably depending on the opposition. Sadly he looks a long way off especially defensively. He got caught out badly for a try at the weekend.

I am not sure how many other players will challenge for selection between now and the world cup.
