Poor selection from Aussie Eddie.
Hill dropped as he’s been going backwards since a too early selection. Beaumont is still not 100% after a big injury.
Genge, just don’t rate him, never have and he’s second choice at his club. I first saw him as a 16 year old as an 8 and he was average.
Wood, safe choice, but surely a bench boy.
Care has been awful for a year, same with Slade.
Lozowski is a funny one, not sure why he’s there over Cipriani, as neither has a good kicking average.
Yarde is just crap, he used to be good when he was at London Irish, but he’s crap now. I remember seeing him at Twickenham when he was 18 and playing outside centre to Elliot Daly and he looked a work class prospect, he’s just not got any better. He’s got chunkier, but not better.
Christian Wade can now kiss his England career goodbye, as if he can’t get in when both first choice wingers are injured, he’s at least 5/6 choice.
I remember seeing Elliot Stooke at 17/18/19 and he was a monster second row who could totally dominate a match (more than Otoje), I still think he’ll make a great 4/5 sometime.
