I thought Brian Ashton was supposed to be some sort of maverick coach?
He is without doubt the most uninspiring and dull man in sport. Can anyone tell me why he has dropped Tom Rees at openside for Worsley. Anyone with a bit of rugby knowledge will know that to play a fluid game you need a link man in the back row. I realise we have to drive the ball and protect it against Samoa but this selection smacks of a man who cant handle the pressure.
Also I like Tait but I do Feel he is a wing or fullback. Remember South Africa in November 06, he was smashed every time he had the ball. He is one of our best young players and we must give him a long run in his natural position.
Cmon England.\
