Don't see why he has to use the EPS for the summer tour. Technically perhaps, but with the players off for the summer I can't recall a single player having an issue being released to a summer tour

It's a pointless media act that Captain announcement they do.

On the plus side Bath's backs look in great nick Very Happy. Watson is coming on at a pace.

I think the news of Rokoduguni in the Saxons is interesting. Bath's best winger this season in my opinion and I'm including Watson in that. I wonder if he'll ever gain a full cap.

First bath game I saw with Roko in I thought he was an international for Fiji already to be honest, great pace and power, and seems to have no problem bowling people over without going down himself. Smashing the defenders beaten leaderboard from what I'm aware of.

26 now right? I wouldn't be massively surprised to see him play some part in 2015 to be honest.

Very talented runner once he has the ball. There are issues in his positioning, and I assume his fitness levels, with the latter at least showing improvement.

Certainly worth serious consideration, but I truly hope he doesn't only get one Saxons cap and then can't go to the 2015 RWC as a Fiji player.

That would be bad for him and Fiji. Have to say, as he'll be 32 come 2019, I think 2015 is his biggest chance, no reason why he couldn't make the England squad after the RWC though, and still not reach 2019.

My fear though is he's a long way down the list, going to have to do a lot to grab a spot.

People suggesting we may see a backline of:

Youngs
Farrell
Brown
Barritt
Burrell
Ashton
Goode

Don't know what I'd do if that happens...

give up and support France

I'm thinking we'll see

Dickson
Farrell (don't like even typing such)
May
Burrell/Twelvetrees
Barritt
Watson
Brown

I'm not supporting France. Maybe the Italians.

That's what I'd like to see (and could realistically occur), would rather 36 than Burrell.

Then against Scotland give Ford a start, and maybe try Burrell/Barritt or 36/Burrell.

If he thinks Ford is the best 10 then pick him, if he thinks Farrell is the best 10 then pick him. Test caps should be harder won than getting a run out Vs Scotland in the 6N

I agree, but people can change on the big stage, and I'd rather see that Ford can't hack it at Int level against the Scots than the French or Welsh. I don't think he'll have any issues myself.

I think the backline will consist of:

Youngs/Dickson
Farrell

and the ball won't get any further than that, so maybe we'll play Billy at inside centre, Tom Youngs at outside centre, 2 props on the wing

Brown at fullback in case the opposition kick the ball to us

Watson released to the Saxons, the threat of Ashton looms ever larger
