Courtney Lawes huge hit in pre-season game vs Bedford Blues

Fourth of fifth in the pecking order?! Maybe lets first consider the fact there are just 3 other locks in the entire England squad and then consider who they are.

Attwood - A good player for Bath, nothing really more than that. Played twice against Argentina this summer and I doubt he'll get many more caps for England.

Launchbury - I feel overrated and bigged up too much. I love him for Wasps because he's clearly a good, good player but he's been made out to be a superstar by shoddy journalists before his time. Still a bench good option for England since he can also play 6 if absolutely necessary.

Parling - England's best second row option. Wholly committed to the team cause. Would get into pretty much every side in the world. Line out skills to match anyone in the world.

There does seem to be a disproportionally large number of videos about Lawes smashing the little guy but I urge you to follow him closely in a game. He does all that you have listed consistently every game. The problem with Lawes is that no one will forget him getting ripped by Scott Williams. Apart from a shocker against France in this years 6 nations (when he was played out of position) he's played well every time he's started in an England shirt. It's very hard for a second row to stand out as extra ordinary because it's simply not their job. But Lawes is the guy you know is going to make the fly half hesitant every time he runs the ball and you know he's the guy who's not going to let his man over the gain line.

When you say anonymous are you implying he doesn't do the grunt work? e.g hit rucks and make tackles?

The Fastest Man In Rugby: Carlin Isles short documentary

Phenomenal athlete (obviously) and an incredible advert for rugby in America but could I see him playing 15s? No. That said I heard somewhere Cuthburt only took up rugby at 17 and he's become a lion. So there's plenty of time for him to prove me wrong and I hope he does. Seems like such a great guy as well.
