I am a Cips fan and do agree he has worked hard. It is good that rugby fans can call good form on a player and want to see them in an England team regardless of which club they are from. I think this is why Jones has lost a lot of support...and a quick canvas across these boards bares that out, imo. Rugby fans aren't seeing the right picks.... And these mostly aren't partisan pucks, they are from people who see the form players week in and week out. It makes you wonder what Jones' thinking is because he is at odds with so many. Ex players, fans, media...

I think the biggest criticism is that he has ignored form players but stuck with out of form perceived favourites.
Brown isnt a winger, many agree, but he is still our best fullback and it isn't his fault that the likes of Watson and Daly have not been able to claim his shirt, so he is mostly exempt from anyone not wanting him in the final 23.

I do think Robson deserved a game and I would have picked him along with Spencer for today's game.
Youngs hasn't deserved to start all three, Imo, especially in today's dead rubber.
