Maybe not that many, but I would certainly get shot of Robshaw, Youngs and Brown in a flash

No, just half them based on firm, skills and abilities. Then get an organised defence and a bloke at the top with initials DR or RB

Camel, it’s not utter shite, SA currently are a shadow of their former selves. The legend of the Emporer’s clothes is live and well in your eyes.
If something drastic doesn’t happen soon you can forget a good England showing in Japan. But then some people are easily pleased it seems........

We love a scapegoat on Shedweb, but I can't see how blame can attach to Youngs or Brown for the fact that England won virtually no possession for the middle 40-60 minutes of the game. Or that Daley had an absolute shocker. Or that none of the Saracens forwards was anywhere near peak form. Or that front row subs should have been made earlier.
The back row is a huge issue, and we need a full complement of second rows. And let's try playing people in their normal positions, so we don't get so many positional errors.
Very entertaining game, and easily May's best all round performance for England.

19 tackles by Curry (highest in either side) and made 23m ball in hand - 2nd highest forward

Forgive me, England are tremendous and Robshaw, who gives stunning postmatch interviews leads by example.
If only EJ could find a place for Haskell, the side would be complete.
The All Blacks must be quaking in their boots.

I agree Camel some utter shite, but all entitled to an opinion. Unfortunately some have formulated that opinion on players before a ball has been kicked and are not prepared to watch the game just look for any mistake to validate that opinion

The curse of the back row forward is that nobody sees them if they don't carry the ball.
As regards everyone else they all gave 100% but the downfall was too many penalties.

Itoje should be sent on a refereeing course, then maybe he would understand the rules a bit better and stop giving away so many bloody penalties.
Or maybe it's because playing for Saracens he is allowed to get away with it every week.
