The Wales /Scotland game. Wow. the difference in ball handling compared to the other two was frightening. The Welsh in particular.
they are going to tear us a new one next week. England that is.
And that is a team stripped of talent with lots of rookies up against a resurgent Scottish side tipped to do stuff this year. Jeez.
England were good but no way near that level. Turgid, static and taking the ball at zero pace on lots of occasions. they put Italy away well but I fear they will not do it this year.
Simmonds has frightening pace and tackles like a demon - so surley a berth at 7 for him in the Hooper/Warburton mould. That frees up the second row and allows Laws, Itoje, Kruis and Lainchberry to slog that one out. I'd really like to see England going forward more - looking to keep the ball alive and less of the ruck ruck ruck ruck em to death approach.
Aim Low and miss...
