Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

On the positive, two excellent fullback displays yesterday :) Alex goode must be looking over his shoulder now. Tait, while not the messiah he was made out to be when first on the scene, is showing now what he can do when partnered with a decent pack (sorry Falcons / Sharks fans). I've been one of ...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

You need someone running the lineout though. This is where Attwood has the advantage over all the others, since he does run the bath lineout, none of the other options (except Parling) run theirs. Cant see Parling being dropped but if injured who runs the lineouts then? I don't know who takes over,...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Tomkins has had a few good games but he was pretty gash for the Saxons and his form hasn't really demanded a callup. They were going to pick him if he managed to stay upright thanks to our absurd obsession with rugby league players. Farrell got a lot of flak for his mistakes in the HEC but Tomkins ...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Should he be? He's still a shadow of the player we know. I think he's still better than Goode, but that could be my bias. With all these new players winning first caps there needs to be one or two old heads to bookend them, Foden is one of the most-capped current England backline players in content...

Foden might not be back against Ireland, apparently he was dire against Exeter yesterday.
