England training squad announced. Shame for Nick. Now ambivalent ref singleton and te’o.

Really tough for Nick but the blue and gold jersey has to mean a lot

Injuries may yet be a factor.

I would have thought that Sinckler & Williams would be ahead of Nick but it must have been a tight call between him and Dan Cole. Cole is still a good player but perhaps not as effective as he has been in the past. I wonder if Cole's ability over the ball swung it for him?

I'm not - they're not Worcester players.

I don’t see the star effect about Sinckler personally, but hey ho.

Hope Sharky doesn’t feel the need to move on to make a point to Jones.

Although Jones has come to Sixways , apart from his live affair with T’eo, not sure if he truly came to watch Warriors when he did come. More like opposite numbers IMO.

Poor decision by Eddie for me. I won’t be surprised if Sinckler gets wound up and costs a card or three.

Nick is a great scrumagger but needs to be better in the loose to get into the Englans squad IMHO.

I agree with ROLLO, gone are the days when all a prop needs to do is scrummage. I think Nick has moved his wider game up a level, buts he's not an explosive runner, nor prolific at the breakdown.

Sinkler is a solid scrummager, and very, very good around the park.
He has been a real asset to England and is getting better game by game. He does need to lengthen his fuse, though. But he is clearly our best 3.
Nick will have been told what he needs to work on. It certainly won't be his scrummaging as I agree that he is better at this than KS. The rest is up to Nick.
Rugby is brutal. If he stays fit, I wouldn't bet against him getting to Japan yet.

Have to agree with that. Sinckler’s speed and hands for a tighthead are outstanding. Same with Mako Vunipola at loosehead. They both can pass like a back and are excellent at off loading. Nick has added the offloading to his game and I do think he’s slightly better in all departments that Cole, but Sinckler is that benchmark

I'd agree with the above 3-4 posts about Sinckler, etc. Schonert is more on form than Cole but Cole has the experience and is better at the breakdown. The squad as a whole are lacking caps, so his inclusion makes sense.

We should expect Nick to be in the running for the 6N.

EJ clearly knows more than me.

I think Cole’s past it, and Sinckler’s a potential liability.

We’ll see.

Well, hopefully we'll get Tiggers and the Hairies in the first block of games, whilst England are still in the Far East, with a fired up Nick eager to prove a point.
