    1. Hopefully with more accuracy, focus and ruthlessness Don. Without sounding like a typically arrogant Englishman, we really need to blow them away with an 80 minute performance.

  1. Joe Taufete’e plays for Worcester. Has scored a fair few tries for USA if I remember. Good in the loose but not great in the set piece.

    I’m more interested to see Gary Gold as head coach. I had no idea he was doing that now.

  2. Marler against Lamositelle should be interesting at scrum time. Lamositelle is a very talented and powerful scrummager and may cause the more experienced Marler some problems there.
