Oh I'm perfectly fine with the ban length, I just find good character considering his record and remorse after the way he kicked off on social media a bit laughable.

He's got character, the "good" bit is wholly subjective is all ;)

Kicked off on social media? The ********, utter ******** thing?
If so, I think it’s quite clear he’s trying to make light of the situation, seeing as he was grabbing ********.

The thing I can't understand is how a violent act like Bastereud last year gets less. I think a charge of Bringing the game into disrepute would have been a far better charge, more salient to the situation, which was an ill conceived idea of a bit of a wind up. It was not violent but inappropriate.

He’s now deleted his Twitter due to all the abuse he was getting.

Gustard got publicly angry with him a while back for getting binned in a club match. Likely to be spitting feathers big time over this.

Not his finest hour.

The first fixture for Eng is 4 Jul and it’s April in a couple of days. Really can’t see it happening and risks shouldn’t be taken.

A lot can happen in 3 months(the optimist in me)
Germany are testing people for immunity if that's successful it could be run out to players,then squads can get back together.
But the realist is hoping for the season to start on time

Yeah - I suspect we’ll have to write off any ideas of completing the Premiership season or touring this summer.

Hopefully I’m wrong, but I think a reset for the 20/21 season is probably a more realistic expectation.

100% for it.
Mainly cause he's going to be Tigers captain in a few seasons and don't want the welsh to bring him to a welsh club.

That being said we don't need him at all.

TBH sod it give him a cap just to spite the welsh for Williams and Thompkins. (Also cause of Tigers pretty please).
Reality is though Reffell is as welsh as they come and not sure he would pick England anyway.

Sounds more like Eddie doing his usually ruffle the feathers of the other unions (Which I am 100% for considering they don't care about us) and he isn't actually going to cap him.

IDK why Martin is being touted to over take Willis. Martin is pretty much a lock.

If you ignore Sarries currently as there position has nothing to do with current form, has there been a team so low in the table that has provided so many England players?

When you say so many... I reckon the next England squad will only include 3 (Genge, Youngs and Ford). Cole’s out of favour and May and Tuilagi are no longer Tigers.

I'm sure there has been - eg Bath when they've flirted at the bottom of the table

Do we really need to be looking past:
  1. Tom Curry
  2. Sam Underhill
  3. Lewis Ludlam
  4. Ben Earl
  5. Jack Willis
  6. Ben Curry
and trying to poach a born and bred Welsh player?

Nothing against Reffell as a player, but literally every player in that list is a better player with a far more sustained track record of form.

Apparently the Willis brothers qualify for Ireland and have been sniffing around. I would be absolutely gutted if we lose Jack (and Tom).

As for Martin, I think he can potentially justify the hype as the next big thing at lock, but I don’t want to see him at flanker when we’ve got Ted Hill if we want a big, rangy blindside.

Well hopefully Youngs is off the list too. Really need to give experience to some younger players as there is only a handful of caps outside of Youngs. Only Genge and Ford deserve a look in.

Who would we have as our top 3 scrumhalves assuming Care and Youngs are no longer in the picture? Spencer and Robson I imagine would be the first 2 choices and personally as 3rd choice I'd quite like to see what Randall can offer.

Is Alex Mitchell fit? If so I’d definitely give him a look in - he was one of the standouts of last year’s Babaas game. Maunder’s also done well since being given the Chiefs’ reins.

I’m not a particularly big fan of Randall to be honest, especially after he got hooked so early against Chiefs. Not sure how we can expect him to go well at international level if his club don’t trust him at Prem level yet.

Spencer is the clear first choice though.

1. Spencer
2. Robson
3. Maunder/Mitchell
