starting 10s? or 10s challenging for an EPS spot? especially considering that TH isn't a "starting 10" at Bath, so would be a tad harsh to compare him that way.
Challenging for the 10 shirt, off the top of my head:
Flood and Ford are likely to be in a genuine battle for the 10 shirt at Leicester
Farrell and Hodgson both start for Saracens
Miller is currently playing 15 for Sale, but looking to move back to 10 (may end up not doing so though; like Alex Goode, hence I've placed him last on the list).
For me, it's a good example of what "strength in depth" means; and what England's superior player population numbers actually result in; we've got 11 players who all look capable of playing fly half internationally; our 10th XV would be the best (or one of 2 with France) 10th XV in the world; and that hampers the 1st XV by trying to pick one, and sticking with them for a period of time, rather than swapping and changing with every international window, and fluctuation in form - if you only have 2 FHs capable of playing international rugby, then they're playing whenever fit, and can rack up 50 caps in 1 RWC cycle
