Wednesday’s Musings

I thought I’d stick up a new thread for today.

Great debate yesterday, the obvious topics of Sarries Salary Cap, England 6Ns squad, Eddie Jones and this weekend’s European Games.

I imagine there will be more of the same today, but I will kick things off with the England team I would like to start in Paris on Feb 2nd:

Marler, George, Sincks
Itoje, Kruis
Curry, Billy, Underhill
Robson, Farrell,
Tuilagi, Slade
May, Daly, Watson
Bench: LCD, Mako, Williams, Ewels, Willis, Chudley, Ford, Nowell

Marler in for the scrummaging, France target the scrum anway, so will definitely do it after the RWC Final.
Midfield as it is more defensively sound, most of what France build on is their dangerous centre Vakatawa.

The wider EPS squad would be chocked full of the yoof, but they need to be eased in and France away, having lost there last time, is a chance for these England boys to stamp their authority on the tournament and you can imagine they’re pretty hungry to prove themselves again.
