Mike Brown has been excellent for us but he was a little bit off against Scotland and we've decided to start Anthony Watson.

Just...incomprehensible. Did he watch a different game?

That's a better looking side that might even win, decent pack, if somewhat ponderous, changes make sense to me.

Do you have the faith?

Fazlet the obvious choice for captain. Will probably need to some to calm him down every now and again.

Will Mike Brown be at the next RWC? If not then need to swop him out now imvho. Does anyone else think we've seen the last of Hartley in an England shirt?

Is Brown's absence more about accommodating Daly?

How come Dan Cole is never mentioned as a "leader"? Senior player with lots of caps who has made the no 3 shirt his own. Not suggesting that he should have been made captain but isn't it about time Dan "stood up" (hate that expression)? For England and Tigers. After all, Dan isn't exactly the shy retiring sort in my experience.

Understood - but I'd have accommodated Daly by binning the walking chaos machine.

A little surprised they didn't tweak the locks/backrow and move Lauchbury to the bench, Robshaw to 6 and then one of Simmonds or Haskell to 7.
