Dropped from the XV
Can Flood even play Fly-half?
Why drop our most creative player because he made a couple of mistakes? I hope doesn't carry on with the short term thinking that has stopped England developing for the last few years. We're going to get smashed by the All-Blacks anyway, so why no give Cipriani the experience and let him learn from it?
parachuted straight into the national team without a chance to build form?
Or that he's still learning at international level, and being out of form and having two back to back poor performances maybe he should go back to Wasps and play into some form for the 6N rather than spending the whole of Saturday having his face smashed in by McCaw?
Why didn't they do that in the first place then?
Wilkinson got injured, Hodgson is out of form and discredited at international level (for shame), Flood is more of a 12, Barkley is a violent offender and Geraghty is injured. So it was that or turn the dark corner of giving Ryan Lamb a full cap
Andy Goode lines up a kick at goal
Welsh girl "'Ere, why's their prop kicking?"
if I'm honest. all the talent in the world but he's only 21, for pete's sake. Could be useful coming on later as an impact sub though.
I've been telling people for years how good they are.
Back row is still shite though, so NZ by 25
don't think the Saffers record will last even a week when NZ come a callin'
They could've put 50 on us at Croke Park
Your half backs should be absolute wankers.
See Ronan O'Gara telling the entire Argentinian team to "go fuck themselves" on Saturday.
