I assumed that Manu and Flood would be brought back in and that we would get JTH back, but expected Hodgson or Barrit to lose out.
I take that selection to mean Hodgson starts, so presumably Farrell and Tuilagi in the centre with Flood and Barrit benching. I think England are going to have a defence problem in mid field against Wales when the phase count rises.
Lawes was always going to come in, not too concerned that he's replaced Palmer rather than Botha, I just hope he and Parling start.
Really hope we can get JTH up to speed for Saturday, he seriously needs some game time.
Should be strong team to face Glaws.
