A bit disappointed that Cipriani was not included, I know Ford is a good player but Cipriani offers just that bit more and pushes players around him, I think it's more than a dissapline problem and more of a clash with Farrell.

What makes you feel it's a clash with Farrell?

To be honest, the best thing to happen to Cips is to be nowhere near this side. It's a cobbled together front row, we're down to what 4th / 5th choice? And a make shift backrow. It's going to be backdoor ball for the half backs for most of the series.

I think that Eddie doesn't like any mavericks in his teams, to keep a good team ethic and take the spot light off the team and on to him (something he really likes) the only Sheriff in the back line is Farrell, and his reaction to the audacious kick through by Cipriani, to Jonny May spoke volumes about what Farrell thinks of Cipriani, he is just not his type of player or person, but that is my take on what I've noticed and could be miles from the truth.
If you had a chance to play again for your country (just before a world cup) you would, even if it means turning down a lucrative pay day in france, if you can make the difference behind a third choice pack then imagine what might happen with an armchair ride.
Saying that I understand your view, it is the same as mine but we're not professional rugby players with international ambitions.
