Like buses. None for ages then we're overrun with them. Kvesic has been doing pretty well at 8 recently but I doubt he'll get much of a chance there. Breakdown would be fun though with him, Underwood and Curry.I didn't even realise he was in the squad. It's weird seeing england playing with actual 7's.
Exeter play weirdly they have two massive ball carrying flankers who play a bit like 8's and then a smaller sort of 7 that packs down at 8 (simmonds did this really well pre injury).Like buses.

Yep very changed team, biggest difference is no ford at 10 though he just makes things happen.Very boring England game so far. Unsurprisingly seems to be lacking a little focus and intensity, but also seems like we're doing various sorts of scenario training - keeping the game very tight and playing the percentages, randomly subbing off half our pack after 30 mins etc.
Yeah said that before many a time, Ford isn't the perfect player but he's by far the best 10 we have at playing flat to the line, range of passing off both hands, and directing traffic over multiple phases. A lot of fans though (dare I say, maybe the casual fans) trash him for his size and that he's not some all action Wilkinson/Farrell type or making scything breaks at will.Yep very changed team, biggest difference is no ford at 10 though he just makes things happen.
That sounds absolutely shite.RugbyX will see the introduction of rugby's version of the 'Super Over', with drawn matches decided by a revolutionary 'one-on-one' contest.www.bbc.co.uk
Some new version of rugby. They say it's like "Twenty20" isn't that just 7's?
Ultimately I think all three of Wales, Ireland and England have got too many flaws to win the tournament, but think it would be good for rugby if one of them can get to the final at least.
