Apologies to John J, he has posted this on the existing Tom Curry thread, but I think it worthy of a thread of it's own.


Congratulations to Chris Ashton, replacing Jack Nowell in the starting XV at Twickenham v France, his first start for 6 years. Tom Curry also retains his place, despite his decidedly average (6 rated) performance against Ireland.



Unhappiness, where's when I was young
And we didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as a fun and take it if we can

When was the last time Sale had 2 players starting a 5/6 Nations match for England?

I don't know, maybe Cueto/Hodgson/Robinson at some point, but the one I'll never forget was when we played Wales at Wembley in 1999 when Steve Hanley and Barrie Jon Mather played their one and only games for England. Hanley scored a try but Scott Gibbs scored a try in injury time which cost England both the Grand Slam and the Championship.

Painful memories. Don't let's have a repeat tomorrow please.

Sheridan and Cueto were mainstays in the England side around the 07-09 era - I imagine Wigglesworth and Tait started a game with them. Can't think of a time we would have had over 3-4 though

I think we may have close to 5 including bench players.

We had 6 in 6 nations squad in 2005.

Cueto
Hodgson
Robinson
Jones
Sheridan
Titterell

5 of them named against Wales 4 start, Titterell on bench, (Sheridan missed out)
5 of them named against France 3 start, Titterell & Sheridan on bench (Jones Missed out)
4 of them named against Ireland 3 start, Titterell on bench, (Sheridan & Jones missed out
3 of them named against Italy 2 start , Titterell on bench, (Robinson, Sheridan & jones missed out) Cueto hat-trick
Same 3 named against Scotland, Titterell on bench again.

I thought we had as man as 7 involved at one time, probably round this time frame with Lund also being involved, but can't find any confirmation.
