This could be a pivotal moment in Dylís England career, one he has no control over. George plays well, England play well, Farrell is an inspirational leader. All of a sudden Eddies argument over Dyl disappears.

Surprised to see Mako as vice captain. If Farrell has to leave the field that will mean needing three captains in one game. Still they look at ever eventuality these days so I am sure it is all thought out.

They'll probably see the same thing with George, as they do with Care - a player coming on for 20 mins against a tired team often stands out more than one that plays 60 mins from the start. We'll see.

Cowan-Dickie's looking a lot better than he used to so I'd expect him to go well when he comes on.

Might be good for Dylan. Heís been playing well but not outstanding. Perhaps if George and Luke do well Dylan will lift his game.

Team still lacking a proper 7.
And a world class out and out centre.

Very very pacey back 3!

Struggling to think of any team in the world Farrell would not get in as a 12.

New Zealand too star with.
Ireland would probably stick with there midfield combination as well.

Farell is a world class player, England's best player I would say probably.
But because of this ability he is doing a job at 12.

If we had a world class centre I think we would see Fareell switch to 10.

Trouble is he's playing on the wing !!

Thank goodness EJ is a man not swayed by the 'experts' who continually run Dylan down.
I could almost write Dallgo's copy for him now. Win or lose.
'England much better with George at hooker'

I will be interested to see if George is substituted around the 55 minute mark in a similar fashion to Dylan.

Yeah that will be interesting, the lineout will get a bit hit & miss once Cowan Dickie gets on but I really like his general play. Hope to see him get a run out.

Well, the French will look at that back row and think:

LCD couldnít hook for toffee against us at Sandy Park recently. If/when he comes on Iím sure the French pack will want to shed some light on whether or not heís put that right since.

Think England win easy, much better coached. Stuck with big pack because French are big there, probably the only place they could beat England.
