For the first time in over 30 years, I may not bother watching England on Saturday. Why are Randall and Odogwu in the squad if they are not going to even be on the bench against Italy? No evolution. No fresh ideas. No point.

???? GREAT SELECTION .......THERES NO WAY ELIGIBLE PLAYERS WHO ARE PLAYING WELL WEEK IN WEEK OUT WILL VIEW THIS SELECTION AS A KICK IN THE TEETH.
RANDALL, ODOGWU, LAWRENCE BEING GIVEN TIME TO DISCUSS THEIR DEVELOPMENT AND FUTURES AS AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE SQUAD WHILST BACK IN THE HOTEL. WHAT'S THE PROBLEM WITH THAT?
NEUTRAL FANS LIKE MYSELF APPLAUD ED'S FEXIBLE AND IMAGINATIVE APPROACH.

Scotland deserved to beat Eng last week as they were so poor.

However, some deluded on here saying Eng so bad, Scotland have to play much better against a decent team blah blah.

If Eng were so bad and Scotland so much better how come points diff was only 5 and Eng got losing bonus point?

Maybe Eng were poor but why then didn't Scotland run away with it?
They showed pity. Removed
England are just a bunch of big, fat pork sausages. Removed

You do know the game is at Twickenham not Rome? Not that you let facts get in the way of your anti England rhetoric.

Just checked the team selection expecting it to have changed but it hasn’t....Eddie obviously happy ignoring the wailing and guffawing of the charioteers. His young charges must feel disillusioned and let down by his allegiance with the past. However, ??Ted Hill for your inclusion and bringing a ray of light for those in the shadows. Ire /Fr likely cracker, Wales/sco a Celtic victory for sure.

Lol, so what are you a mod now telling me what to do? You're becoming obsessed man. Selection? No problem, pack back to strength and have always been a Ford fan. Don't be too full of swagger just because you have got a howling pack of England "fans" backing you up. What floats your boat more, Wales victories, or England defeats?

England are now renowned all over the world for - no, not rugby - sending them the most deadly cover virus strain, that has already condemned the 2021 Lions Tour. Shame that. Removed

Why are you so obsessed with England?
There's a HYS open for your teams game why not "contribute" over there.

What? Lewes is never a back row forward, and never will be. England are fortunate that the superb Polledri is injured otherwise it could have been 2 successive defeats for England at Twickenham.

Mate you cannot make statements about Eng's performance / win ratio over the last 6 years, it's been tainted by association with a cheating club side who broke all the rules during the time they supplied Eng with the spine of the side.
As premiership or euro side have said, how many times would they have won competitions / supplied the Eng squad with players if there was a level playing field

Ah but according to a well known Scotland fan (who knows everything!!) it was only the English players who benefitted from the situation at Saracens!

BT should be forced to put money into 2nd tier rugby if they are so keen to have their say on ringfencing. They want their cake, eat it & go backs for seconds.
3 years ago (when Wasps were in bottom 2) Monye was screaming for ringfencing - what a hypocrite.

A puzzling comment, but I won't criticise, given that your modus operandum is to get dissenters kicked.

Well, it wasn't me, but maybe you should stick to the topic? So do you think Wales will outscore England tomorrow? Could have a chance if they sort out that creaking scrum and dodgy lineout. Oh, and if AWJ has taken his Phyllosan!
No reply facility to reply to your comment. Dark forces at work lurking in the shadows and removing my comments. Not an unusual occurrence. l believe you as l expect you to believe me so no problem Catch up soon no doubt. I posted my thoughts on the welsh game on the welsh hys. As for Italy England who knows.... neutral fan so favour neither. Removed

OK. I didn't see your post on the Wales thread as I rarely visit.
Sexton,s injury is already provoking many Irish fans t o use it as an excuse for losing to France ahead of time. Would the English ever go so low? Removed

Honestly I said before the Scotland game, that with England's injury/suspension/lack of game time crisis in the pack (only 1 natural starter who'd played a serious game since November) that I thought Scotland had a good chance, sadly I was very, very right.

Sexton's injury is pretty bad for Ireland, as is Ryan's. However maybe in the long term this is good for Ireland as Sexton can't last forever

Why do you think it is that, when the English rugby fans on here mention FLAIR, they think Trousers?

News Latest is that Twickenham,s pitch is frozen. They say the under soil heating has packed up, but I say this is what happens when you don,t play rugby on it.
This BBC board treats its posters as if they are s chizophrenic. It is not right. Even I was informed I had 400 characters. Removed
