Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

I think Hughes was good enough but Eddie obviously thought Billy who had not played for months was the best choice in the country alongside others who had not played for months https://keyassets.timeincuk.net/inspirewp/live/wp-content/uploads/sites/7/2021/02/GettyImages-1300704810-scaled.jpg Okay i...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

I'm a little surprised JJ dropped away as he did, but Slade has improved a lot in defence, and neither of them ever got the attack game going you'd like or that seemed possible for them , so that Slade is now ahead of JJ seems something of a whatever outcome. Hughes just wasn't good enough at test ...

Good effort from Aus. Should make the quarters according to Greg Clarke. Is he on crack? 3 pools.

Feel free to troll the Crusaders, but I stand fully by my comment that for the Crusaders, there isn't a player that I would trade for Richie Mo'unga I have no issue with that.

10 is not the problem, it’s the balance of the midfield and the best combination is quite simple. Big hard running bastard at 12 and a quick 13 with some decent distribution and a bit of a kicking game. We need to find a replacement for Manu or pray his body can hold together until after the RWC.

What does 'run the ball' mean in this context, and why is Ford perceived as being bad at it? For me Ford is about as good as it gets at test level right now. Ntamack and Mo'unga might push past him, perhaps Smith would also do so (or one of the other young 10s in England). But it's far from obvious...

All the news is that Biggar will be fit. Hopefully Anscombe will be recovered for next season and Biggar can fight it out for the bench with Sheedy and Jaron for the Welsh bench. Point being the Lions have a poor choice for 10 atm. If Gate trusts Smith then pick him, but our 9s are gash and he won'...
