I thought Ben Spencer was going on loan not on a 3 year contract! That's a good signing for Bath
And for England too, hopefully.

Re: Who won WWII - How nations view who ultimately won it

I think had Germany not committed the blunder of advancing too far east thus stretching themselves, and concentrated first by only going west, the UK probably would have been taken over a very long time .

Out of the uncapped players, who are we hoping will get a decent shot at showing what they can do for England?

For me it would be Furbank, Stuart and Thorley. The first two for the greater depth at 15 and 3, but Thorley looks a hell of a winger.
