Trinder is out with a broken jaw now, so maybe Johnny May will slip into the 13 shirt.
We've got to keep him on a short Matt Smith shaped leash as he can be deadly as he proved against us two or three years ago.
I thought Rupert Harden was from the North East rahter than Australia but I've just checked and he was born in Australia but raised in Cumbria via Rugby School. No surprise that the midlands forward factory is in fact the home of yet another hard working unpretentious young thruster.
I'm personally looking forward to seeing Sharples and May. For myself I'm confused as to where England could fit May into things despite his evident gifts but how Sharples has not been selected ahead of either of the two incumbent wingers is a mystery beyond my ken.
Also looking forward to seeing another well regarded Tight Head pitch himself against Marcos after he has sent two experienced, quality International opponents away, tails between their legs, in successive weeks!
who’s slobbering love affair with him endures and will doubtless endure as long as he continues to use them as a quasi selection committee.
Well said! Well said! Well said!
Although when Flood came on his attacking inclination saw the England back line briefly spark into action I remain convinced that the Tigers’ half backs would be better served by returning to their club and working their way back to form instead of remaining to be the Aunt Sallies for the media and others.
as he carries the ball in both hands, his opponents are left pondering the options as the twenty-three time capped international straightens or feeds a colleague running either on the angle or against the grain.
Indeed! How did we arrive at a place where this is the exception and not the norm?
