Disappointed Cipriani didnít make it in there ahead of Piers Francis. Also I would have taken Harry Williams too. Other than that the squad looks pretty formidable

Yes,Jack is a Sarries player but he's in the WC squad due to his performances with us.

Well done!

Still a chance for Ben if injuries but we're still non the wiser if the fracas was between Ben & Mike.No official statement.Would've taken him myself.

Cips & Williams are unlucky.Who would miss out for them both?

Seen a lot of Ruaridh McConnochie for England 7's so I know what he's about.

I agree it is a formidable squad.It's going to a tough but we have more than a good chance of winning the whole thing.

Hill and Lawrence take note, you guys can both make 2023 World Cup if you stick with us!

As above, mystified by the selection of Francis, who is an average Premiership centre. We've got two better (Mills and Venter), two who are going to be better shortly (Butler and Lawrence), and one who is probably better but we haven't seen enough of to be definite yet (Beck).

Beck is Welsh and Venter SA

The other two are not ready yet, so we only have Mills who has not impressed Eddie at the England training camps through last season.

We donít really have anyone available and I canít think of any club that does either, so Eddie is stuck.(Sm128)

Jones accepts from experience that there can always be discipline problems when you have 31 individuals working. living and playing together
