Youngs dropped to the bench for the Scotland game, but surely Heinz is not a long term replacement. Two new ones need to be identified and developed.Other problems but having a 9 who is so far off the international pace is a consistent problem that Eddie needs to start working on. Playing Youngs is just pointless at this stage.
Heinz is at best a stop gap for this 6Ns but beyond that it is very tricky.Youngs dropped to the bench for the Scotland game, but surely Heinz is not a long term replacement. Two new ones need to be identified and developed.
It's a bit inevitable in a way though when for whatever reasons, everybody is on a post World Cup revamp. Can't say I'm at all impressed with EJ's squad selections though (or should I say ommissions?) and if you're going to move the old guard out why leave Youngs as your starting 9?Lose to Scotland and there’s every chance it’s shootout with Italy for wooden spoon!
Weird selections and no sign at all of a plan B being developed let alone being used. It’s quite strange really.
I do hate it when the six nations becomes a tool to experiment though.
