Think the whole back 5 is unbalanced.Selection at International level is so important. SB doesn't seem very good at it
Will Stuart is awful, can't scrum, can't carry, lazy around rucks
Itoje and Chessum are too similar
Roots-why ?they have shoehorned him into the back row that now looks unbalanced. If they want to play Earl and Underhill together. Let them play on the flanks with a bigger 8
Ford, out of form
Dingwall too small and slow. V good club player
Daly ..he wasn't an international class wing 4 years ago. The guy is an OC
If there were big grunts at 5 and 6. Then Itoje, Earl, Curry or Underhill at 4, 8 and 7.
Martin may do it at 5, but the cupboard is as bare as the prop cupboard.
Do, at the moment, Earl plays 8 with 2 big flanker, Pearson and CCS.
