Head coach Eddie Jones says England's first home loss to Scotland since 1983 will haunt his side.
Scarred by RWC 2019, England must have a more expansive plan B. Also, for players to be ready for RWC 2023, game, some of the old guard need to go: Lawes, Wilson, Billy Vunipola, Youngs, Ford and Farrell. New faces: Harry Randall, Marcus Smith, Joe Simmonds, Alex Dombrandt, Sam Simmonds, Jack Willis, Alfie Bearberry, Paolo Odogwu.
As a Welsh fella looking on as a rugby fan, it seems to me that EJ keeps faith with players who cannot adjust. OF is overrated at 10 and is not a 12. Ford is a proper 10. Youngs is not a great Scrum Half and Randall should be blooded. EJ should experiment with this against the 6N practice team that is Italy.
Disgraceful, fancy losing to the Scots. It could have only been worse by losing to the Welsh. However, I have it on good authority that we have to keep the Scots happy whilst they work on our oil rigs and in our factories until we boot them out the UK. Then we replace them by some of the Welsh from our coal mines and employ monkeys to replace the Welsh to improve productivity.
