    Did Hughes actually pack down in the 2nd row?
    I just presumed Shields would have when Hughes came on

    I wouldn't be ooovveerrrlllyyy surprised to see him just take krutoje and Lawes,
    But at the same time he's used locks at 6 so much would be actually take four locks and use Itoje or Lawes as backup blindside?

    I’d rather have a lock at 6 than a 6 at lock......

    Or you could do something crazy and stop playing players out of position! Eddies experiments have never worked. We have played best with locks at lock, a 6 at 6, 7 at 7 and an 8 at 8, who’d have thought it.

    Who of them will reach their potential? And the ones that will we need to stand by. Not drop just because of a bad run of games and onto the next. TCurry far ahead of the rest currently ofcourse but still

    There is also SSimmonds is only 24 and 2 willis
