One of the most pleasing thing with England is that we seem to have a settled squad before the World Cup, so different to four years ago when the coaches didn't know their best side by the time we were knocked out.

The only players who may make a squad being, Underhill, Watson, Jack Willis, Cokanasiga.

Cole would not be anywhere near the team for me.

Hope Exeters coaches were watching the way to stop teams defending rugby league style with kicks.

Your latter point was exactly my thoughts, you have to be multi dimensional to break defences down.

I think England have been nothing short of superb so far, Wales will pose a huge test though, but win that and the Slam is ours, and we all know what happened the last time we won a GS in RWC year!

The French were all over the place and did what England were guilty of a while back, playing people out of position, their back three were easy meat for our kick chase tactics.

Gatland reckons Wales have forgotten how to lose, letís hope we can remind them on Saturday week! Should be a great game, the build up with mind games from Jones and Gatland should also be entertaining!

Been saying this for months but then again we've been getting the results so why change things? Whilst I'm in favour of using the tactic it does go against our ingrained playing philosophy of keeping posession.

I'll leave it to RB.



Just a farm team from Devon.
We know who we be!

When you have carries like Billy, Mako, Sinckler and Tuilagi it makes any game plan easier to make work of coarse.

I think I am right in saying that no points scored after Ford came on for Tuilagi
