Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Tigers with no players in the U20 squad, can't remember the last time that happened Also Saints and Wasps with just one player each, although in Wasps' case it'd be unfair not to also count all of the Sale players they'll eventually be nabbing TBF to Tigers, Odogwu and Umaga we both U18s there.

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Slightly surprised by the namecheck for George Merrick. He's a decent young player and I'm happy to have him at Quins, but he'd be a long way back in the queue for a spot in the second row. Saxons maybe. EPS no. To be fair, same goes for Dunn and Ellis at the moment. Good players, but a some way be...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Rumblings in the League rumour mill that Shaun Johnson is on his way to the Premiership. Could well be angling for more money in his contract negotiations and I'm not entirely sure what position you'd play him in union but he is a hell of a player. Intriguing rumour. Can't imagine why a superstar N...

Not so confident. He seems normal these days - he's not a Hartley/Marler/Sinckler type. It's been almost 5 years.
He was banned as recently as 2 months ago for elbowing Donncha O'Callaghan.

Two weeks out- are we all agreed this is the likely lineup? Mullan, Hartley, Cole, Launch, Kruis, Itoje, Wood, Hughes, Youngs, Ford, May, Farrell, Joseph, Nowell, Brown. That front row makes me want to cry. I broadly agree with that being the most likely side, only question marks would be Haskell c...

Te'o is playing better than Manu atm I agree- though it is only Manu's third game back- and Te'o, whilst good, was not ripping it up (and was arguably outplayed himself by Hurrell).
