I would like to have seen Brown go at Halfpenny rather than pass to Strettle. I believe he may have had more of an impact. At the least, it could have been recycled and still in play.
Ashton needs game time for his club, as does Youngs to show that they are back on form. Sharples for me and I'd consider giving Foden some time to reflect as he hasn't really done much since last years tournament in a white shirt.
Banahan, really? Is that the big, powerful, destructive winger who couldn't barge past Shane Williams at Twickenham last year when 1 on 1?????
Stevens, time to go out to grass, no pun intended!
