    Big Lesley was pretty bad, but the winner has to be Alex "Bambie" Goode

    Still got Watson to try out. I think once Miles Benjamin has had a bit more game time he should be given a go too, the man is a beast!

    Have you watched s15 or SH provincial rugby? I'm not a fan of swan dives, but it seems that you are branded a dickhead / arrogant if you are English and do it, but it's perfectly acceptable otherwise

    hape wasn't actually that bad in an England shirt. He had a solid if not flash partnership with tindall that was disrupted by forcing tuilagi into the side. Prior to that England were settled, were winning, defensively sound and the back 3 were scoring tries. Drinking culture aside, forcing tuilagi into the team was the biggest mistake Johnson made when in charge imho

    Noon was brilliant in defence! He smashed Heymans which lead to a Paul Sackey try. That was such a good tackle! Hape was alright, Banahan done more pointing than playing rugby. Matt Stevens was a fat druggy. It's nice to see people also think May is shit :-) Maybe England should try Eastmond or Tuilagi on the wing?

    None of them can tackle! Wade smashed in Lions warm up, Ashton smashed every time, Yarde against Australia QBE. Nowell is good in defence, bad technique above in the video, but he will learn, and still gave it a shot.

    How's Nowell a dickhead?

    I didn't see your comment. I totally agree, May is shite, even for England he runs sideways.

    May is shite. I think i've said that before ;-) but why didn't he run towards the posts instead of doing that shit dive! I dont care if a player dives or not but first things first... Get as close to the posts as you can! He ran away from them. He never runs towards them. And Mark Cueto I think is quite the gentleman, not at all a dirty player, he patted Burrell (northampton defender here) to say 'brilliant attempt' I think.

    Nowell pushed him close all through the 6 nations. I can see how he has scored no tries for his club

    Jamie Noon England's worst ever player?! I think not.

    I think there's a lot of arrogance involved in what he did. Breakthrough season, starting for the national team, all of a sudden he's swan diving like he's the world's best. A bit of hype in the English media about a player and he thinks he's god's gift. Very similar to Ashton... A lot to be said for a bit of humility I think.

    I don't think that one was too bad, Ashton however pisses me off big time, and i'm English. Why be such a muppet!

    I don't agree on the Nowell comment, he was always breaking tackles in the 6 nations, created a few tries.

    I kinda think you have to do that arc/slam dunk when you are going for the line one handed in greasy conditions to generate the force to keep the ball in your hand.

    You do know that meters made is not counted laterally ? He is an interesting player and scores tries for fun at prem levelbut can he make the step up ? Also the worse player in recent years for England has to go to Vainkolo or Banahan, now they are useless

    I assumed the 'chat' was just a bit of mutual respect. Didn't see any reason to think it was him being a dick. What do you mean by a massive slam-dunk motion? I can't see what you're on about there at all.

    "Aye, that's a sight to behold - 20 stones on the hoof" Jonny May try - if only international wings were as accommodating as that Newcastle player: "oh you're going to telegraph a cut-inside as soon as you receive the ball? Well here you go then, let me just open this door for you. You're welcome". Mark Cueto try - surely at least one of those passes went forward? I see he's still doing a massive slam-dunk motion when finishing tries in very tight spaces then - cf RWC 2007. Can't argue with his record though I suppose! Looks like some very unnecessary chat to the defending player too.

    poor technique by Nowell though. Small guy like him is never going to stop a big lump like that. He should have let Mulipola get along side or just past him before going in and he would have avoided the impact which knackered his shoulder.
