Team For the 3rd Test

No point dwelling on another error ridden performance with no control or focus so straight into the next one. I’d go with:-

15. Mike Brown
14. Johnny May
13. Elliot Daly
12. Henry Slade
11. Denny Solomona
10. Danny Cipriani
9. Dan Robson
8. Nathan Hughes
7. Sam Symonds
6. Chris Robshaw
5. Nick Isiekwe
4. Joe Launchbury (C)
3. Harry Williams
2. Luke Cowan Dickie
1. Joe Marler

It’s hungry, will be more dynamic and with pride only to play for, why not.

Curry has looked ok to me.... I'd give him game time so he knows he belongs at this level.. On form, I think we'll need him next year. I

I can't see Robshaw getting back in the team currently.

As it stands Curry is one of my shoe in players right now but, id like to see Simmonds and Wilson get a run. Curry has done very well but I would just be careful not to overuse him.

Curry looks perfect for us.

Wouldnt play CR again until hes rediscovered his form and interest in the game - looks burned out and disillusioned

Needs someone to replace Mako, and maybe Earle for Solomona, but otherwise, pretty much that...

I would wait and see who stands out this evening against France and fly them to South Africa.

The other Curry twin is captain, Marcus and Gabriel are starting.

Even if you they flew out and did not eventually play, it might send a message to the senior team.

Agree with Cips starting, he has been in great form. Think Robshaw is knackered tbh..



If at first you don't succeed, Try, Try and Try again.

Like Mike Brown, Robshaw always gives 100%. But it's part of management's responsibilities to protect players from themselves. Robshaw could be the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail and he'd still want to play!

He needs a break, certainly, but I think the (dis)interest/disillusion bit is off-key. He's probably upset with his form/fitness, which isn't quite the same thing.

Exeter have 6 out of 23 so maybe their days of flying under the international radar in the GP are over..

Shame not to see Robson starting with Cipriani and I think Slade is very lucky too.

Missed opportunity on this tour to see what the likes of Robson and Lozowski can do.

If Care was indeed dropped rather than rested, hard to see how Youngs has been any better

^Youngs has been dire. I would have started Robsoin, particularly if you're starting Cipriani, keep club 9 & 10 together who know each others game.

Teflon Youngs. If Care plays badly, everyone remembers it. Youngs gets away with having plenty of bad gams because once a season he plays a blinder.

I'm not saying Care deserved to tour - he was poor in the 6 nations, as were many others. Just think that Youngs should be judged by the same standards
