Im amazed Joe Marchant isn't in the squad,unless he's injured?
He was been brilliant last season and in great form still against the Barbarians, im puzzled?
Im also glad Piers is getting a chance, been brilliant for us and deserves his place and recognition.

Unlucky to have a bunch of Lions ahead of him as he has been Quins best player for me this season: Teo, Tuilagi, Joseph, Daly and Nowell plus non-Lion Slade who will probably start.

Why Heinz?

Why Heinz?

Because he can boss and control a game.
Youngs is dodgy, care, even more so. Robo is fighting injury, and Spencer isnt convincing.
Wigglesworth gives you 20 mins so Heinz who knows Cipriani well, is worth a look as plan B.
He has been very good at glaws ...and in the top 3 or 4 9's behind the other two south Africans this season. Imv

Agree Heinz has been excellent this season. not surprised at his selection.

If Cips gets a game, then having Heinz at 9 would make things a little easier.

With the current options not setting the nation on fire, things could look good for Mitchell. Too soon for this World Cup, but 6N next year is a possibility.

Interesting for the Rwc.
If you take two, id go youngs and robo, if the latter is definitely fit.

If you take 3, I'd go with Heinz or wigglesworth but I dont think a 35 plus scrum half is worth a squad place unless he can play 80mins.

I think youngs is lucky...I think he has held on because jones hasnt looked elsewhere.

6 months ago I think he should have played Robo and Spencer.. but he didnt and now you are looking at players with few caps.

So it is young by default.
What England need is a savvy 9 and the best we have is probably heinz.
It should be robo, but he has been cruelly wasted and cruelly injured.
