I’d play a 7. Wales target the breakdown and only Curry seemed to really contest last week. I’d play Kvesic.

Ditto. Call me disgustingly old fashioned but I rather prefer an Openside at 7 (yes, yes, I know he plays at 8 at Chiefs but look at HOW he plays). Plus, given the fragility of Curry and Underhill, I wouldn't bet against it being the last time we see Kev in the RWC setup; would be worth giving him a run-out to get used to England's game.

Well it looks as if the back row cover is ......... Jack Singleton, with Marler swaping sides if required and George Ford changing to scrum half. Dan Cole to have the kicking duties ?

I understand where you are coming from Lee but for me that would be slightly counter intuitive. Kvesic as it stands not in RWC squad so EJ better off using this game to see if Ludlum could step in during RWC. Result on Saturday is largely irrelevant, as most of my welsh friends have been telling me all week.

That makes sense, but would you not even put a specialist 7 on the bench? England have announced the RWC Squad much earlier than they needed to and giving Kev 40mins off the bench to see if he could step in should either Curry or Underhill have to withdraw wouldn't be the worst idea surely? Perhaps we will see that in England's final warm-up.

Let’s hope/or not hope whichever side of the fence your on. If a 9 or 10 goes down will DC get the call up...

If he’s confident Curry and/or Underhill are going to be fit then yes, I can see your point.
