    I wouldn't call any of those surprising omissions really, apart from Tom Youngs. Parling and Cippers England days are over I'd imagine.

    Biggest surprise is that absolute SHOWPONY Haskell is still in squad.

        Two scrumhalves, neither being Joe Simpson seems like a strange call.

        I haven't watched Ollie Devoto much this season. Is he in as a utility back? Aren't Eastmond and Joseph Bath's first choice centres?

        Itoje and Clifford are great calls to get them into the set up young.

        Disgusted and bemused respectively to see Ashton and Yarde selected.

          Ya, Cant understand how Haskell is still in the squad. He shouldnt get much action with narky no 7 Matt Kvesic a fine player.

            Joe Simpson is a super player, hard to understand that one

              Turns out Eddie was only allowed (as per regs) to make 10 changes from last squad chosen. I'd imagine he may have made a few more changes but for that.

                Is that true? Where does it come from?

                        Is Hartley officially the Captain?

                              They'll probably need a second half captain too so.
