Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

We were screaming for players like Curry and Itoje for years, as we watched every other team have good poachers. I can excuse a lot of their penalties, given how disruptive they are. But 5 pens in a game from one player...can't happen. Hopefully that's as bad as it gets. 3 of them weren’t pens. Str...

The momentum shift of 3 pens is huge.

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

I don’t think we have discipline problem. The last 10 minutes says otherwise. Plus discipline isn't just about not giving penalties away, it's also about players doing their jobs in attack, defence and transitioning; making correct decisions and good choices. England's discipline is not close to go...

I don’t think we have discipline problem. The first 3 against Maro today were utter bollocks and we were generally held to a different standard. Selection is the problem.

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Maro’s first 3 pens weren’t pens.

Daley has been completely ruined by Eddie, he should be nailed on at 13. Which is where he made his reputation. Ford, Faz, Slade isn’t scaring anyone.

10, Smith/Ford or Faz
11. Watson
12. A big hard running lump
13. Daley/Marchant
14. May
15 Malins

My hip and groin are still f**ked. Managed to work up to 325 for a triple on the deadlift and then did a load of belt squat RDL’s and belt squat box squats. So lucky to have that piece of kit, it really is a game changer when you’re carrying an injury.
