My guess, looking at the team is that Eddie felt playing away in Italy may be a bit of an ask for your first cap in the 6N. It appears as though he has named the best team possible so there is no English arrogance on that respect.

Even if on the bench, it could be the case that he would have to come on after 3 minutes and then play 77. It's a lot easier to settle when you are at home with a crowd cheering you on, than away with everything against you.

Am I right in thinking that he isn't part of the squad for Wales as per this afternoons squad announcement? I treble checked and I'm sure he hasn't been selected. Useful news for us this Saturday but disappointing for him.

It looks like Nathan Hughes has been brought into the 32 man squad and Gary left out from the RFU announcement.

Might be in the Scotland squad after Saturday's shambles. If he is available for the Falcons could easily see Mark Wilson in the second row if Robinson and Witty are injured.

Yes very interesting.... Scotland are short of decent backrowers and England seem to have enough. It'll be curious to see what happens.

If Gary ended up being selected for Scotland this weekend it would be quite frankly embarrassing for Gary and England.

if Gary switched to Scotland during this six nations I donít think it would cast him in great light, just because he wasnt selected for the match day squad he picks the phone up to Scotland, personally I would rather get my head down and work on proving myself to the gaffer

Where e heckers has this fairy tale come from?

Gary Graham is not going to be selected by Scotland this weekend, nor is Elvis Presley or Lord Lucan. It doesn't work like that.

Even though he didn't get on the field this time. I bet he enjoyed mixing in with the England boys and has learnt a lot. Gotta be good for both Gary and the Falcons.

So many positive things going on these days.

Have to say Iíve found this thread incredibly perplexing; here you have one of our players picked for the England training camp, a huge honour for him and the club, and there are as many people saying he has done the wrong thing and should have opted for Scotland as there are people congratulating him. We then move on to his dad being so ashamed of his son wanting to play for England that he has gone into hiding on a remote Scottish island (exaggeration but you get my gist) to now he is throwing his hat into the Scotland rugby ring because he didnít get picked. Itís like reading the worst ever column in The Sun.

Nurse.........

Would there be anything in the rules preventing him playing for Scotland?

(Just theoretically, I'm not starting it off again!)

No Andy Mac, not until he is capped at full, A or 7s level

Surprised that he dropped out of the squad on the day after Italy and then neither played for the Falcons last w/e nor is in the latest England squad announced today. Injured?

We said last week he had an issue with his neck.
