  1. Mcfadden should be on the bench instead of earls and jackson or madigan instead of rog he is a liabiliy off the bench.

  2. After such a physical second half against the Welsh, I’m impressed that they can start the same XV. I think this is England’s toughest fixture, I’m feeling nervous already!
