I agree with this selection, I'd love to see Armitage in there starting at 7, we need a specialist 7 and why turn down European player of the year who has won the most turnovers so far in the champions cup.Subject to injury I expect the final England 31 will look like this:
Props: Corbs, Marler, Vunipola, Wilson and Cole
Hooker Hartley, Youngs, Webber
Locks Launchbury, Lawes, Parling, Attwood
Back row Robshaw, Wood, Haskell, Vunipola, Morgan
SHs Youngs, Wigglesworth, Care
FHs Ford, Farrell
Centres Barritt, Joseph, Tuilagi and Twelvetrees.
Wings Watson, Nowell and ????? (don't know: between Ashton, May, Rokoduguni, Wade, Yarde)
Full backs Brown and Goode.
Personally, I would like to see Steffon Armitage in the final squad and Slade as an option at 12. But the arguments of the former have been gone through too many times. We will see, Armitage at best would be a sub in the 23.
I've got a feeling Armitage will end up back at a club in England before the world cup.
Keep Robshaw and play him at 6.
I'd like to see Ashton back in the squad, he's back on form and would play well off jj.
I think goode will be reserve 15 but would like to see cips in as a utility back instead, he's a player who can make things happen.
Does anybody think vunipola could play 6 with Morgan at 8 with Easter on the bench. Vunipola's fitness is really improved and having to massive ball carriers on the pitch is what we need, haskell can carry but nothing like those 2
