Industrious as ever
Hit every breakdown and carried well
Mark made one mistake from a restart but then won a turnover from the loose ball almost immediately. This still didnít stop Mark apologising to his team mates
I would expect Mark to start the next game

That incident did make me laugh
Mark makes an error but rectified it immediately but is then all apologies for the initial error. Says a lot about the bloke

He was definitely back to his usual excellent self as I thought at the Italy match at SJP he looked like he was carrying an injury and was a bit quiet.
He should start next match - does anyone think he and Tom Curry are our best back row pairing?

mr cheese 26 September, 2019 21:36
think eddie prefers curry and underhill atm only time will tell I suppose

Good industrious performance by Mark, as we expect, nothing too flashy but does the hard work that often goes unnoticed.

I listened to the last five minutes on the radio and one of the commentators, Matt Dawson I think, said that Wilson is a key player for England and should start with Curry, however as Mr Cheese says Jones seems to like Underhill and Curry together. It's a long, brutal competition and I'm sure there'll be changes due to injuries, and Mark will get plenty of time on the pitch.

When England play big physical teams in France and Argentina, I think Mark will start as heís key to securing the ball at the breakdown. As Leipy says itís the hard work that goes unnoticed but without it youíll struggle

We've got a bloody good back row that's for sure as Ludlam looks decent too.

Its hard to pick but againts Argentina I'd could Wilson , Underhill , Vunipola but cant see lots of rotation but to be fair the 4 flankers have bags of energy anyway.

Mark is an England international now and looks it! As stated industrious when he came on. I see Mark at 6 and Curry at 7 for Argentina.
