Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

To leave Moon on the field- who was walking by 70m, with Genge on the bench was criminal.

Re: 6N - Official Ireland v England thread, Feb 2nd, KO @ 16

Quick question about the scrum for those who know anything about it. Did both teams just settle for a draw there? Pretty much every scrum was clean, locked and then the ball played. I was expecting Ireland to use it as a weapon and braced for 9 resets a time. looked like it. Mako and Sinkler are av...

Wales in Cardiff in Gatland's last test v England will be a nightmare. If the Slam is on and I don't think it is, it's going to be done the hard way.
If England keep a majority of the pack fit, I don't think Wale have the firepower to beat them

Seriously though, probably;

Irish players are over rated, Schmit just gets the most out of them- only one or two would make a world XV.

I can't see Roko and Solomona on the wing ending well.

Argentina had the nudge in the scrums over the summer, so would be surprised if it weren't the first choice front row starting.

Great performance from him today- apparently ahead of where Maro was at that age- he could be some player.
Potentially could force his way into the England team this season- even though just 19. Maybe Itoje will play 6 after all.

He sounds like a double-digit IQ type. In other news, the shiteness of French rugby continues.

I still don't know if Exeter have the top two inches to go far in this cup- lack of stardust maybe- certainly with LCD, Ewers, Nowell, Campagnaro out.
