Against Worcester he tried to do too much on occasion and got it wrong, but that is part of JA's 'playing without fear' philosophy. Mistakes will happen. I think someone like Trinder will absolutely thrive under JA.


I think his injury record has counted against more than which club he plays for and he hasn't been the most robust defender.

He was immense today so hopefully he stays fit for the remainder of this season by which time there's a chance he'll be on the national radar.

Call me selfish (in fact call me anything except late for dinner) but I hope our Henry gets overlooked by the national selectors.
They're bound to send him back 'broken'!

The great thing is that Trinder hasn't just got fit but has been fit for a while and actually had a full pre season. All the extra strapping on the legs has gone and he really has got his pace and acceleration back. The similarities with Sinbad are valid and it was great to hear Sinbad on 5 Live this afternoon before the game talking about him and all things Glaws.

NB on 5 Live there was a discussion about the Prem injury problems and much as in pains me to admit it I mostly agreed with Jerry Guscott abut the NH collision culture rather than looking for space.

This morning, the 5 Live sports news include an interview with him about his England chances (which he plays down)

I predicted here on Shedweb some 7 years ago that Trinder would play for England one day. Unfortunately those nasty injuries delayed the selection process. Although he has played once for the national team, albeit an un-capped honour, he really deserves another look from Eddie Jones and his coaching staff. If he is able to stay injury free between now and Christmas, perhaps Eddie will offer him a wild card entry into his training squad for the 6N. In terms of natural ability, vision, pace and rugby nous he is up there with the current best. I think his star is shining brighter right now as he hasn’t got Jonny May on his outside. As a result he probably feels he needs to do a little more himself and he clearly has his confidence back to do so. I see Jonny now has 6 tries from 6 games but he would undoubtedly have the same stat with Henry playing inside him. He reminds me of a young Jerry Guscott and comparisons with a certain JSD are not wide of the mark.

No need for the Millwall Syndrome, Henry is well and truly on Eddie's radar.
