Clear path for Curries?

One man's misfortune is another's opportunity. Underhill is out for three months following ankle surgery. Time for Tom to stake his claim to the 7 shirt for the 6 Nations and for the RWC.

But who is his understudy and back up if he is injured? I can see Mercer and Simmonds could be considered, but neither have the same truffle-hound skills as Tom. Ben does. Could, and should this be his opportunity as well? I can't think of another 7 who has performed as consistently well as Ben did while Tom was injured/away with England.

Fingers crossed.

Ben deserves a look in, but I imagine it'll be Robshaw back in the mix and Wilson covering (he covered 7 during the AIs)

Real shame Underhill is injured, would love to see him at 6 with Curry at 7
