No more Mike Brown...!,

Bit strange to play Mercer in preference to Morgan.

I like Mercer a lot, but donít think heís quite physically strong enough yet for International Rugby, esp. against the big Saffers.

I like the look of the possible back three with May, Nowel and Daily at FB, the back line looks strong but the forwards lack some experience I think.

No Dan Robson is very puzzling.

Ben Youngs has been very poor in every game Iíve seen him in over the last few matches.

Itís also odd that the likely starting front row will have 2 Exeter props but no Cowan-Dickie in the squad at hooker - who is surely miles better than Capt. Hartley.

Itís difficult to see us winning more than 2 out of the 4 AIís.

Dan Robson has not played for a while and is injured.

I agree about Ben Youngs being off form, but you have to stick with your half backs and hope they show the class they have when it counts, it's something that's hard to change this close to a World cup.
