Surely we should have them back to play?

Suggests George is injured or am I reading it wrong. A Saints player injured when with England? Really? Thereís a thing.

Yes it does say that, I heard it on the radio and hadnít read the article. Ludlam has nothing wrong to get dropped. Joseph playing wing??? Really

Iím surprised heís not playing Tom Currie on the wing, Lewis could slot in at 8! *

Is injured a euphemism for broken by Eddie?

Five locks, just one wing, and no full back. Another interesting selection from Eddie.... It's either madness or genius! (Or somewhere inbetween?)

A third of the starting 15 out of position: Daly, Joseph, Farrell, Lawes and Curry.

Joseph is baffling given the plethora of quality wingers we have. Plenty of non-injured options even with Watson, Nowell and Cokanasiga injured. And due to injuries Jones is allowed to bring someone in for injuries: Thorley, Ibitoye, Solomona, Ashton, McConnaghie, Earle, Rokoduguni etc

Rumour has it that for the Wales game Jones will write the team sheet out but reverse the numbering so the back three will be Marler, George and Mako Vunipola. The front row will be May, Daly and anyone else who fancies a dabble at prop but they must primarily be a back. Be so happy when this England head coach leaves, heís rubbish!

I must admit the selection of Joseph on the wing is very strange. Covering Tuilagi and Slade?

So England at a home WC fail to get out of the group stages. Jones comes in and wins a grand slam, another 6 nations and then gets to a WC final. Yeah he is crap.

Jones also got to a WC final coaching the Aussies who were written of before the final, he changed the Japanese national team and made them what they are today, won super rugby a few times, was part of the coaching team that won a WC with the Springboks and have beaten the All Blacks more than any other coach.

You disagree? Fine. My opinion doesnít make me wrong and yours doesnít make you right. Theyíre just our opinions. Englandís past, recent or not is past. Englandís future is to come and my opinion is that heís getting more odd by the day. Iíll be happy to see him gone, and judging by others views on his selections people are beginning to question his judgement.

Made Japan best ever

Helped SA win World Cup

Took England from dross to World Cup final beating favourites New Zealand

Took average Aussies to World Cup final beating favourites New Zealand


Objectively/on paper that isnít rubbish albeit anyone can dislike his style or selections. Iím not a fan of players out of position.


Currently he has injuries to:-

Furbank
Mitchell
Cokanasiga
Watson
Nowell
Slade not fully fit


arguably most of them start

you know exactly what I mean:-

If he had been fit since September Iím pretty sure he would be starting 9

Slade would be starting it fit too
