Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

So what is Eddie thinking for Italy? I wonder if he will go with those with more experience to try to close out the 6n then bring new caps through later/as subs. If so is it: 1. Genge 2. George 3. Sinkler 4. Itoje 5. Launchbury 6. Curry 7. Underhill 8. Vunipola 9. Youngs 10. Farrell 11. May 12. Slad...

Re: British and Irish Lions XV for 2021

Its not a bad team. Some calls I would challenge though. Lock: I still think AWJ will go it he doesn't get a big injury. I am also not sure how far ahead of the other ENG locks Itoje will be. Back Row: B Vunipola was amazing a few seasons ago, and is still good, but I think he would have to pick up ...

Finishing, being on the end of the line. But really, he looks like a winger. No big or impressive tackles in defence (thin...
