    My London Irish bias aside, the selection of Worsley at 7 for the game against Wales is a poor one. He is not a natural 7, and whilst I know Steffon didn't have the greatest game against Italy England would surely have been better playing a natural 7 in what is set to be a massive game.

    the problem with a lot of opensides is that you don't notice their workrate, was certainly a case with Wallace when people were saying on Saturday that he was below par, utter nonsense. You shouldn't pick a 7 for their ball carrying skills.

    It's a given that Armatidge has been an outstanding 7 all season for the U.N. O'Reading whereas Worseley has and always will be suuter shite, but what we're seeing is the same old England - Bring in a promising player, tell them to play in a manor which is completely different (and frankly, with ****-poor tactics which doesn't take advantage of their abilities), see they didn't set the world alight on that one and only chance... So drop them and call in the same **** players we've been using for the past 4 years - mostly from the Wasps and Leicester payroll.

    Same thing happened to Foden.

    What really confuses me about this is that if Johnno absolutely had to bring in Worsley (Let's look past how stupid the decision is for a moment), why wouldn't he play him on the Blindside and let the Flanker with quite a bit of pace (Haskell) play Openside?

    It really does confuse me.

    I mean I can vaguely see the logic in bringing him in, he just wants some massive thug to try and keep Wales at bay up front (why didn't he try to do that against Italy) but why play him there?

    The weird thing is that Armitage is not actually a bad ball carrier, maybe if England followed London irish's lead, and used a forward to atack from the 10 channel they would have realised this.

    Also how can some players get several chances to perform (which is right as far as I'm concerned) and some are dropped after one poor, or even avergae performance?

    Worsley may be a lot of things but he's not a thug!

    it's only a thug who'll trip a player, that's as low as it gets bar gouging.

    Worsley has a reputation for tripping, punching & stamping. That's forgetting all his other neat tricks like ball killing, time-wasting and crying to uncle Probyn.

    Thinking about it, it must be a Wasps thing...

    Which is fortunate for England, because otherwise Wales would be looking at a 9 point headstart (and then a couple from Haskell and Borthwick) and probably having at least 10 minutes against only 14 men.

    Instead of a 6 point head start and 10 minutes of 14 men...

    Only got themselves to bame for this reputation of cheating shitehawks. Who get away with murder because of Probyn and Blackett.

    I hope he does all those things on Saturday. Its what we need from our pack.

    I hope he does them aswell. A 30 point lead in 10 minutes sounds tasty.
