I don't get this obsession for dropping players from a winning team.
Harry has been part of a team that has won 4 games on the bounce and which has secured 19 out of a maximum of 25 league points.

On what basis can anyone here drop any player from the team other than for injury or rotation? (Fly half is hardly a rotation position)

By all means have Francis or Myler on the bench and bring on as needed but don't start dropping players just because you don't think they are the best in that position. After all, for all we know Harry's style might be perfect for Luther!

Totally agree. One minute the same posters are suggesting players like Rob Horne have to earn the shirt. The next week they want to drop Harry with whom we've played the most exciting rugby in years.

I do agree other very important elements like better collisions, Groome rapidly ball etc.

IMHO Piers owns the shirt when fit, he's a super rugby 10 and in the England squad, can do it all. For now I'd stick with the winning formula....
