    More or less the same as above, I'd bring Lozowski in for Simmonds on the bench though.

    Hahaha - so true. Effective, hard to stop, but mechanical and unimaginative.

    I said of the fit players, hence no Cordero or Vunipola.

    If I’d selected from unfit players I’d also have gone for Barritt at 12.

    Itoje at 6. Tut, you know that’s against forum rules.

    6 forwards and the half backs from Sarries explains why they’ll win again. Barritt’s still in with a chance of playing too.

    That was going to be my starting 15, except put in Mako instead of Moon.
    11 Sarries to 4 Exeter shows the difference.
    What is interesting is that only 2 non English in starting 15. Replace those with Sinckler and Lawes and have you got a potential good England team, I know 2 not from Exeter/Sarries, but my point is that why are some of these players in the England set up. I for one would have Devoto in the squad as well as Goode.

    If everybody was fit I'd have Mako in at loosehead, but can't argue with that team at all.

    Maybe in terms of personnel. Not when it comes to style or game-plan.

    Ireland play a lot more like Saracens or Exeter than we do.

    Should be 75% of England, but isn’t.

    Swap in Sinckler for Koch, Lawes for Skelton and May for Williams and that would be a proper England team.
