Nowell out of 6N

...so Denny may make the XXIII. Underhill is also a doubt for the France game.

Underhill out and Hartley doubtful.

Daly comes in for Nowell. Canít see Solomona getting a squad spot until SA tests at best.

According to the Telegraph Haskell is in line for a call up for Underhill.

Bewildered by this.

Makes no sense at all, especially as Simmonds is fit again.
Unless they're planning on binning the three lock experiment and playing Robshaw/Simmonds on the flanks with Haskell cover on the bench
There's still a number of backrowers I'd pick over Haskell in that (or indeed any) situation though

If England don't win in Paris they'll probably finish 5th. The Hask has +70 caps, worth a spot on the bench with such a lot at stake. Don't necessarily agree, just the way it is.

He looks the back most likely to be travelling reserve. 11 retained, likely to be 10 in match squad.

This game was absolutely tailor made for Underhill to nail his place in the team. I suspect Haskell of deliberately standing on his toe.

I think We may see the 3 locks experiment killed, with england comfortable enough with their physicality to play a more balanced back row and up the pace to trouble the french (shouldnt be too difficult since they are puffing coming out of the changing room). The dilemma then becomes which of Haskell or Simmonds will start at 7. For me its a no brainer and Simmonds wins every time, but I'm not eddie.
