Well done Henry, would have preferred him at 13 where he has been outstanding this season but any start for England is great. Looks like a fantastic impact replacement front row (Genge, George and our Harry!).

What a backline ! Just hope JJ s defence is ok ...
Also think Sladey for the RWC is a possible direct replacement for an injured Farrell ... So no need to change the game plan ..
Good luck to Harry and Simmo as well

Agree, our academy has produced some gems but Harry is yet another player plucked from the Championship by our superb coaching set up and honed into the player that he is by our fitness regime and high class coaching.

Good luck to all the Chiefs in todays 23.

It seems funny that Eddie Jones has sort of forced RB to play Henry regularly at 13, that when Henry makes the starting team, Eddie puts him at 12!

Ive always thought that when Eddie watched a Premiership game with Henry playing, Henry seems to make more mistakes than usual.

Today, hopefully Henry will show the form hes been showing us recently.

Has Slade ever had a good game at 12?

I thought Harry had a good game, but don't understand why he kept Cole on so long, a player with 70 odd caps shouldn't need the extra experience in a friendly against a team who lost their last 16 games.

Like Baxter said to ugo money, It does not matter what number Simmonds has on his back, if he has the ball in his hands he is a good player, if he is just rucking he is no better than anyone else. We did not see him ball in hand

Nothing to do with our lads, but I thought it was an appalling advert for the game of rugby.

As a man of nearly 60 now, started playing when I was 12, wore the Green and a White of my county, captained my club, became a coach and Chairman......I am falling out of love with the game that has been my life.

What are they, the law makers, doing to Rugby Union, watching 15 men spread across the field is boring in the extreme.

Sorry to be so negative.
