England Forwards

Eddie has a 2 day scrum training camp with Georgia coming over to put them to the test. I believe it's Wednesday/Thursday.

Doubtful whether we will get Jamie, George or Nick back for the Sale game on Friday.

We desperately need Nick back as he is one of only 2 fit locks according to MMC

Georgia have a game at the weekend so I do not think this rules anyone out of playing.

I am sure Nick and George will be back. Jamie id say is less certain.

Isiekwe was with Saracens this morning so might mean that Eddie is just keeping the 23 (or thereabouts) in camp this week.

George hasn't been right since the lions drop

Send him back to us for the rest of the season and he can play himself back into form

We also get Nathan back. Perhaps we should play him at Sale, while offering to rest Liam (if that's what Gets wants) in return for a promise that Wales won't pressurise Liam to play in the 4th AI that clashes with a Premium fixture.

I think we should play Liam this week and in a fortnight (and Maitland). I don't believe he was going to play the 4th AI last year even before the injury so hopefully we haven't agreed to that in future saving us a hefty fine

I am fairly sure that we haven't signed a naughty contract either, but the WRU has a strong lever if they were to threaten to leave Liam stranded short of 60 caps.

My thoughts were that, given the 'luxury' of having Nathan back, we can take the opportunity of liaising with the WRU in order to develop cordial relations. Gats might well say, "I'd prefer that he plays on Friday, but don't overwork him". A request which we could accommodate without much hassle.

Nick Isiekwe was definitely released back to Saracens.

Sam Moore and Denny Solomona were both released back to Sale.
