Re: The man who would be wing

I agree with the comments here, but let's not be overly dramatic.

Bruno and Kev, you state that it's short sighted of Lancaster not to pick Wade and Ewers, and that therefore we're likely to exist the world cup at the group stages

Even if those 2 were included in the initial squad, there's a very strong possibility that they wouldn't make it into any matchday squad anyway.
As a Wasps fan, I love Christian Wade, and while I'd likely have him in my squad, I can understand some of the reasons for not starting him.
As we know with TV2, it's rare that an out and out winger ever makes it onto the bench.

As for Ewers, he's definitely had a great season, and again I can understand the desire to have him in the squad.
However, given the experience (and credit in the bank) that Haskell and Wood already have, can you really see Ewers starting? Especially when the versatility of Lawes/Itoje would probably see them on the bench ahead of him.

While I agree that it would be good to have these 2 in the extended squad, I really don't see that they'd change our fortunes significantly enough to get us out of the group stages and win the tournament
