The rugby world moves on, next stop Japan

A new thread for a new era, England’s tournament is over and so perhaps plenty of England careers.

As reported by the BBC, player welfare prevents any player who’s played over 20 times to travel to Japan. This rules out Ben Youngs, George Ford, Tom Curry, Elliot Daly and Courtney Lawes. Young will have to wait till the autumn for his 100th cap….

So, who’s going to Japan?

Grump’s short list is likely to very similar to yours, these must travel.

  • Mitchell
  • Maunder
  • Smith
  • Earl
  • Willis
  • Dombrandt
  • Mercer
  • An inside cente
  • A full back
