For me it’s always been Watson, I even think Daly plays better on the wing although there are others.

I get that I can be quite moany about Mr Jones but I guess I don’t have a runny 08 to make my dream team with and win the World Cup. With 12 though I get there’s been little to choose from. Personally I’d have had every English 12 in the squads to at least find 1 or 2 to work with.
On Daly i think his worst position is wing, id actually rather him at FB than wing, ive also always prefered Watson on the wing than FB just because i like the more play making 15 who can join the line run a fast line and put others into space.

I want Malins to step up and takes the 15 shirt. He seems to have all the skills but needs to prove himself still.

Yeah Daly's positioning on the wing (both attack and defence) is way worse than at 15

Sinckler banned for 2 weeks for his swearing so will miss Sco.

As clear as day on the coverage. Slight surprise Dickson didn’t apply a tougher sanction at the time but now been deemed worthy of a red.

Nice to see Sincks has finally rediscovered some of his anger.

Slightly concerning considering Stuart's post-haicut form, though
Williams not exactly tearing up trees at Exeter either

Just thinking that once Englands 6N squad is assembled , presumably the whole squad will have to stay together for the duration . I can't imagine those outside the match 23 will be allowed to leave the bubble and go back to their clubs to play ,then re-join after. Cant imagine the french allowing that.
If so, some players may not play for nearly 2 months.

What happened during the Autumn Internationals?

Genuinely can't remember if players were released back to clubs - but they were (supposedly) in a bubble then, living at Pennyhill for a couple of months.

They were released back to clubs each w/e during nations cup. Be surprised if they did during 6N.

I find the French attitude on this quite bizarre. They’re acting like no-one in France has the virus when it’s just as rampant over there.

Yes. This is a worry.

I’m really hoping Francis’ move to Ospreys gives Marcus Street a real opportunity to start on a more regular basis. Williams works very well for Exeter’s game plan but Street has the potential to leapfrog him and become an England contender.

How many Eng contenders are tearing up trees at the moment? I can’t think of many beyond some of the back row contenders and Launch.

That’s partly a reflection of the season being so disjointed. And the Sarries contingent not playing at all.

That may be true but Williams is consistently underwhelming IMO.
