Clifford Called Up

Just announced by the RFU.

Perhaps Eddie saw whatever improvements he wanted to see from Jack yesterday. He's still behind Vunipola, and there's options that EJ is looking at across the back row, but it looks like Clifford's certainly still in the mix.

Billy has picked up an injury hasn't he? Have to say that Jack has looked much better the last few games though.

It is only experts on here that continually right off players.

Jack is playing out of his skin at the moment. Seems like a man on a mission.

He's been called up coz Vunipola injured...I'm pretty sure most of us said he was unlikely to feature except if there were injures.

I'll be amazed if he makes a 23 given the competition - but will be delighted for him if he does...mind you it won't be good for us given how poor we are in the back 3 from the bench.

He is also so much better on the flank, where he can pick a line and get going, possibly after someone else has broken the gainline - he struggles to smash holes from a standing start which is the current role for 8's.

He is quick (enough) has good hands, makes tackles and is a pretty smart player...Not sure he is an international but if picked will give his all..

There was one moment in the 1st half which summed up for me how much he's improved his game awareness, we had numbers on the outside and someone looping round and rather than simply ship the ball wide he too contact and deliberately kept one arm free to pop that ball outside- really intelligent piece of play.

He's back in form, but I agree playing seven seems more suited to his style.

Big chance for him. Hope he takes it. (Mind you...best 7 for England is Armand at the Chiefs)

Jack's probably the best suited to playing 20 in the country. If he keeps playing like he has the start of this season he could get there. Let's not forget that he never really lost form so much as suffered a horrific run of injuries and concussion.
