- Care, Brown and Robshaw all showing signs of being past their peak form. Still all class, but have not got the x-factor or hunger they all had 5yrs ago.

Really? I agree with some of your other points, but Robshaw... for me, he doesn't seem to EVER lose form or fitness. I think it was the LI game where he dropped the ball at a ruck and it seemed a huge error simply because he doesn't seem to make any normally. Care seems fizzing again (maybe due to not being captain); Brown is fired up again and showing positives - not the force of nature that he used to be, but still as hungry as ever.

Fair comment. Yeah i was thinking more in terms of speed. Care and Brown have lost a bit of pace and zippiness even if their effort level seems to have picked up this season. With Robshaw the speed isn't such a thing of course, but he's so indestructible that when he goes off injured it feels like a bit of a watershed moment where he's suddenly aged a little bit.

In any case i love all 3 of them but there's no denying that age is going to catch up with all of them eventually and our 'golden generation' is running out of time...
