    Looking forward to hearing Jones’ comments. Some of these players shouldn’t be near the shirt.

    It's nice that we've been working on our issues with supporting players both on attack and at the ruck

    Nice conversion for Fernandez-Lobbe to finish.

    Don’t care whether it’s your 3rd choice team, you still shouldn’t ship 60 to a scratch side, no matter how individually talented.

    Predictably unimaginable commentary analysis - "this is a young england team and they're learn from this".

    Yeah, except the reason we lost was less about youth and inexperience and more about experienced ex captains missing tackles all over. Not an excuse.

    Right so positives...

    Daly looks like a possible successor to Brown so he can be dumped.
    Singleton played well in general.
    Curry got some turnovers and showed what a proper 7 can do.
    Mercer did alright and definitely one for the future.

    And...I'm done.

    Well that was fun ,was fully expecting England to close it out with loads to spare around the 60 min mark so pleasantly surprised, Pat Lam delivering again.

    Aye, as much as individual errors and displays can be criticised, the coaches share the responsibility.

    Before we get too excited, let’s see how he copes on a wet day when Sexton starts raining bombs.

    Robshaw making 7 and missing 6 is actually hilarious.

    Imagine
    11. Nadolo
    12. Botica
    13. Radrada
    14. Tuisova

    In your squad.

    Fiji could be a major force this RWC if they can get all their players long enough to have time to train as a team.

    Botica?

    Was really excited when Semi switched back to Union, justifiably so.

    Is Botia used more as a flanker or centre these days?
