      Be interesting to see what clever Cathal makes of this England A- team with their obvious limitations giving us a proper good beating.

          Even the English are shocked, they can't believe how bad we are.

            Remember, these results only count when they prove his points. He is so clever that when they don’t prove his point, they’re the wrong results and therefore should be ignored.

            I’m pretty sure he’ll be our next head coach. Prepare yourself to eat some Cathalbeans.

              It’s shocking really that we lost by so much considering we played a FB at 15 today. Wasn’t that our undoing in the 6 Nations?

                Russia playing Connacht on Sat 7/9 in Moscow it seems.

                    Retallick named in the squad even though he's not expected to be fit until the QF's

                      Nearly every squad named has left established players at home because of form. We have more reason than most to do that, but are least likely to.

                        31 yr old 108 Cap veteran and NZ pack mainstay Owen Franks left out of the squad, Joe could learn a lot from his motherland

                          Yup, you've got to ask 'why not now ?' imho.

                          Its 4 weeks before a RWC & Joes top Ireland XV are losing by record scores to an England side, who themselves have been beaten by Wales. So that's like the 6Ns form benchmark to bring to the RWC & our team are 42 points below it.....42 points ffs!!!

                          Our lineout was a disgrace, defence appalling, our fb was his usual ineffectual self and some bolt on starters are still way below par e.g. Ringrose, Stander,etc.

                          It's time for changes ,simples....

                            Why does it take until our 2nd last warm up game to instill some competition within our squad? Im sure In Joe We Rust will trot out all the misleading stats about caps given, bottom line is when we are fully fit and playing anyone like Italy or a higher ranked side, we never rotate unless forced, its beyond frustrating and one of the main reasons aside from our gameplan why we will get battered at this WC.

                              I’m surprised at the omission of Luamape, he’s an incredible option of the bench and looks far sharper than SBW, but granted SBW is only coming back to form and can get plenty of game time before the knockouts.

                                Leaving a couple of "bolted on starters" out might light a fire under the rest of them too as it would show that nobody is guaranteed a spot. As it is more or less everybody knows where they stand, there are really only a couple of spots up for grabs in the 31 and even then everybody knows the starting 15, barring injuries
