    Rumour has it he saw a early screening of the film Black 47 and renounced his Englishness

    Here look.... I'm not letting you have it!


    Was Ashton injured or given the shepherd's hook? It's not a sign of a happy or well run squad if players are getting shipped at and before HT.

    40 mins in and we've already completely butchered the backline

    Looks like Ford, Daly, Farrell, Nowell, Cokanasiga, Slade

    So instead of 10 11 12 13 14 15
    We've got 10 15 10 14 11 13

    This is why all Barnes' guff last week about the massive step forward for England was so nauseating. We were always going to get up for that game, especially when you're so roundly written off. It's all about how you back it up, and we're clearly a long way off managing that.

    I don't think he can feel stupid. Otherwise he wouldn't do the things he does.

    Underhill on is good.
    Mercer off is... erm... our best backrow today (low bar, but he's actually looked interested)

    English players never seem to know when the counterruck is on and instead stand around like planks...it’s very frustrating.

    Underhill already making an impact; hitting behind the gain line. Underhill>Curry, although both would be my preference.
