Otherwise, crap. But hey, his replacement is... Daly.
He's having a crap debut, but it's tough going when everyone around you has forgotten to turn up too.

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Furbank grew into that Lyon game nicely after the opening 10 mins, though. Scored a lovely try too. I think if France get conned into kicking long to him all game they'll be making a mistake. He compares well with Daly, at least. Daly as the last defender against that backline doesn't bear thinking ...

Simmonds looked good yesterday, impressed last time he had the shirt for England too. Now that England have more carrying in the flankers and front row, having a smaller player at 8 isn't such an issue to my mind. Do we have more carrying in loose forward positions now?

Despite the headline, reads more like he's ruling out signing anyone to join for this season. I'd be surprised if Kpoku and Earl weren't somewhere on Boyd's wishlist for those two or three spots next year.

Furbank got over his nerves eventually, then. I'd start him in the 6 nations, his defensive play is miles ahead of Daly and he can be as deadly in attack.
