Brad Shields is in - kick in the teeth for the other hopefulls. Robshaw in as well after the season Quins have had? Just don't get EJ any more, losing interest in England now.

Nowell deserves the summer off to be honest. Has had a heavy run with England and the Lions over the last few years during the summer. Give him a chance to recharge his batteries.

Extremely pleased for Jonny Hill.. Very well deserved...

Can't help thinking Dave Ewers is one of the only like-for-like replacements for Billy V. If you're going to build a game plan around Billy, why not try out Big Dave?

I'd love to see Cipriani and Slade in the same backline just once...

Shame for Hepburn as well. Thought he has played himself into contention.

Agree re heppers offers so much more than the penalty magnate Marler. Shame for Don but Jones and his merry men just donít think he is good enough !! Jones doesnít follow our selection policy of picking people in form !!

Would sooner pick someone who has never played a game in England, baffling. But from a selfish point of view, a fresh Don will be worth his substanial weight in gold again next season.

Robshaw is the one player of ours (Quins) that serves to still go, the others are very lucky. I have been calling for Armand to be in for a while, think it is very odd. I also wanted Woodburn in

Just a thought.. I wonder why Nowell was left out?!

It wonít be because he needs a break and I donít see what heís done wrong to drop down the pecking order..

I reckon he will be hurting to miss out while many of our other boys are going. For a while he was our sole representative.

I hope it really fires him up for the seni and hopefully final.

Was in the 'Not considered' list. Someone mentioned that a niggling injury needed sorting.

Just what I read in a press release. Do you know he's playing in the semi? I'm working away so not keeping up with everything.
