Looks like Joe Launchbury will be heading home, as his injury is not getting better, so I guess Eddie will need to call up another lock.

Considering EJ's recent selections maybe he'll play Brown at lock?

Is Lawes on the tour?

Sad for Launchers because his experience was much needed in that first test, however if he is not fit I would rather see him relaxing at home and come back to pre-season in good shape.

Not included, recovering from surgery/injury towards to the end of season.

Joe should never have been on the tour in the first place. He needed the summer to R&R.

Looks like Isiekwe gets in again. Shields can play in the back row.
Pretty plain to see why Jones fast tracked him now.

watching the u20s doing a very good impression of the 1st team, throwing away a big lead to the saffers. lets hope they can hold on better than the senior side!!

Well, just when you thought it safe to go in the water - it seems Shields is up for second row, again

Please don't break him Eddie, please!!

"If we are going to progress with Nick we are going to need to keep giving him opportunities," Hatley said. "We need to support him. We were fairly aggressive in some substitutions in Australia and it is about what is good for the team at the time, it is not an individual thing.

Coaches aren't even sure what country they're in or who they're playing.

I think he is referring to the Luther Burrell sub in Oz. THat one worked because we went back to the shape we were using before the Burrell experiment.

Also doesn't bode well for Nick because we haven't seen Burrell near a squad since.

Hatley's comments can also be interpreted as going against EJ in that Hatley recognises that even good players need support.

Joe's fit to play for England, so not return to us sadly.

Hoping for a run out for Cips in the next game....at 10. Would think the altitude would still play a part particularly with the back row guys, took me at least two weeks to cope....bursting...before subs too. Think the defence suffered from this last week just not winning the collision, energy levels a bit short. Gustard is a very good coach, good approach with the players too, so expecting big improvements but if the altitude is still a factor might need some adjustments, reckon they’ll ok though. England bounce back.

Well we have 5 plus WLR. Saffa’s have equivalent numbers.
Launch is 4th highest in number of caps in England team, and highest forward.

How much finishing time will £5 get? Robbo to be in 23 next week hopefully!
