    Personally I feel it lacks direction and needs some Tuilagi at Ten to sort it out.

    Fancy a forward pack of:

    1) Marler, 2) Youngs, 3) Wilson
    4) Vunipola, 5) Easter
    6) Burgess, 7) Cole, 8) Manu
    9) Lamb, 10) Ford
    12) Flood, 13) Farrell
    11) Twelvetrees, 14) Daly, 15) Cipriani

    We would have our Captain.

    Has Burgess played 6 in an AP game yet?

    I know he is starting there this weekend but has he played there as a sub yet?

    Burgess played 5 mins as a sub on the right wing against Gloucester. Robson scored from a blindside break down his wing while he was nowhere to be seen.

    On that basis, I would say he's made the England 15 shirt his own

    I just snorted. On a packed commuter train. You made me snort like an animal.

    Hope you're happy.

    If we are going down this route then corbisero at 3! He played there badly a few times.

    Dylan Hartley at loose head - he did cover there once

    Lancaster has sent mixed messages in the past.

    Door is slightly open: http://www.theguardian.com/sport/2014/apr/24/steffon-armitage-england-stuart-lancaster-toulon
    Door is closed: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/ru...ce-Steffon-Armitage-decision-stay-Toulon.html

    There is not really any excuse for the lack of caps for Kvesic imo, and I can't help but view it as a mistake that Ewers doesn't have five by now either.

    No fly-half cover on the bench, 2/10, it's like you want us to lose.

    My guess is that he wanted Armitage playing for England, and wanted to discuss how to make that happen within the framework. (This was before the mooted move to Bath, so there may have been discussions about Armitage moving back to England.)

    What about Barritt? Good distributor, takes the ball to the line well, quick, he's got everything you need for a 10.

    I feel this joke selection may have gone too far. I'm out of my comfort zone. Can we go back to arguing about back rows or, better yet, mock @goodNumber10 for being Andy Farrell?

    Well in that case, I stand corrected!
