Don't we want players to have sufficient confidence in their own abilities to think they're the best? I do.

I think Brown has improved in the past 12 months - he now passes and plays 'heads up' rugby - probably partly down to EJ, but more likely down to Paul Gustard and his coaches.

I'd be much happier with Brown at 15 than Daly - Goode isn't an option as he's injured!

I agree,, he's definitely improved over the last year, down to Gustard I think, but his scrapping with Teo is surely the reason he didn't get selected.

I suspect it is, and I'm fascinated to hear the details of that!

I'm pretty sure that Sarries fans are glad that AG isn't going to Japan. Can you imagine that if England did win the world cup, how long it would take him to get back to London?

Mike Brown, watch the Quins v Glos game we won 29 - 7 , he was awful, starting with his appalling mis-tackle on Woodward for the first try.
Then tell me he’s our best FB!
I started off with nothing and I’ve still got most of it left.

Personally, I prefer to judge players on more than 1 game against Gloucester.

Again it was 1 game in a season. Every player had at least 1 poor game last season.

Personally I would like to see Watson played at 15. But I just don't see England playing without Daly on the pitch somewhere.

As good as Brown is in the air and defensively, his time has passed.
