We spent the day at Twickenham yesterday watching the England squad being put through their paces in front of the public, and it got us thinking about who would make the starting XV.
Given that it was an exhibition day, it’s not too worrying, but the number of knock-ons, failed backs’ moves and missed lineouts didn’t do much to instill confidence. And then when asked in interview whether they trained like that all the time, Delon Armitage explained that it was “just like that, lots of drills.”
But anyway, we’ve put together another series of polls for each position in the starting team, so we’d like your thoughts on who you think should be starting in the autumn. We might then do this again just before the first match in November, and we’ll see how things have changed. We’ll also be able to see how close we are to the actual team that Johnno sends out against the All Blacks.
