Preliminary squad announcement imminent. 5 week mandatory break before players are allowed to participate, so that will rule any Gloucester/Saints/Exeter/Sarries players out for this squad at least. Rumours that Marler has decided to come out of retirement to try and break into the squad - I hope this is true. But as he and Dombrandt both played for the baa-baas, they won't be eligible to participate until July. Apparently also Robshaw and Danny Care are both set to miss out. Would be particularly surprised with the latter given that he is one of England's most experienced scrum-halves and has arguably had one of his best seasons ever this year. Who would you like to see?
