New Zealand tested by England but the World Champions remain unbeaten

1-8 we have a pack to match anyone in the world. Get rid of Farrell, get rid of Tomkins put in Burns, put in Daly then wait for Manu to recover and we have a team with serious intent. Excitement and frustration seem to come in equal amounts at the moment.

His psychology may be helped with Foden helping him out at the back.

England get the better of Australia with strong second half at Twickenham

That's a very absolute, defence-centric argument. England's main problem at the weekend was a lack of go forward in attack. We probably deserved to win, but were it not for some pretty poor officiating, the only try we would've scored is a charge down.

Obviously this is ignoring injuries, but I would love to see these guys play together.

1) Corbisiero
2) Hartley
3) Cole
4) Lawes
5) Parling
6) Wood
7) Robshaw
8) Morgan (tough on billy)
9) Youngs
10) Burns
11) Foden
12) Tuilagi
13) Daly
15) Brown

Agree about the hollow victory. The officials said there was blocking but not enough blocking i.e. "he cheated but he didn't cheat enough." Very, very strange.

Wade has certainly put forward his case after his performance at the shed. Sensational work from him.

Potential is indeed important (although I never mentioned that). But say it weren't to be considered important, Youngs in this present time is leaps and bounds ahead of Dickson. By 2015 Dickson will not be starting for England. He has had his chance when Care was banned and Youngs was injured in 2012. He made a decent fistful of it and nothing more. And MOST importantly because Dickson's got rubbish hair and Youngs has REALLY pretty eyes we should not even be having this debate.
