England too strong for Argentina in first Test in Salta

It's not sniping. Sniping is when the scrum half actually tries to take the gap. And if there is a gap then yes I would like that.

From what I can see those steps only work when the team is going forward over the gain line. Youngs' problem is that he tries it when England are going backwards and he inevitably gets scragged by a guard. But when done right those runs tear defences apart. The also take the pressure off the 10 because the defence is so petrified of the 9. Will Genia vs Wales anyone?

The British and Irish Lions power past the Western Force in Perth

Yes there clearly is. Obviously I'm not writing off BOD as a player but Davies is a much greater attacking threat with his pace.

For me that's a worrying difference.

I'm not sure O'Driscoll is the guaranteed test start most people are implying. He's not got the same pace now he's approaching his pension. Don't write off Davies. Him at 13 with either Roberts or Tuilagi at 12 would give huge cause for concern for the ozzy centres.

British and Irish Lions start strong with convincing win over the Barbarians

You understand this is a rugby forum , right? Calling other people fickle sort of defeats the purpose of having a discussion. Who are you to say you're better?

Ford isn't better than Farrell. Not yet anyway.

England thump the Barbarians ahead of South American tour

I don't understand how Daly can be below Twelvetrees in the pecking order. Based on club form Daly has been one of the outstanding premiership performers. After he scored an average try on his debut Twelvetrees was bigged up as something he isn't. He may well develop in the future but at the minute he simply isn't as good as Daly. I'm not just basing my thoughts on this one game either.

He is absolutely quality but he's not really a full back, he plays best in the centres. In my mind england's best centre pairing would be with daly at 12 and manu at 13. Now THAT would be an exciting duo to watch especially with Burns at 10.
