Some great insights considering the heavy coverage this squad selection has received.
Guess who this comment relates to….
“But he can do things neither of those four can, from either position. Do I understand why he’s not there? Absolutely. Would I have picked him? Absolutely.”

Who was in? Who was getting ready to sit on the sofa and watch ITV attempt to not balls up another tournament? At least Cipriani won’t have to watch Glenn Hoddle give analysis whilst sitting on a Brazilian beach in short shorts…
So, here it is. Those in brackets are some of the players not in the 39 that was trimmed down and the comments that follow are my opinion. If you disagree, I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
Who’s in: Jamie George, Rob Webber, Tom Youngs
Who’s not: Luke Cowan-Dickie, (Dylan Hartley)
