I am really pleased that Twelvetrees kept his place, in the past England would have rushed to get back to the old team soon as. Tuilagi will be champing at the bit when he gets a go... finally we have a head coach who gets it.
I think Varndell has been dismissed pretty much due to perceived weakness in defence.
Pretty happy with the team, but not expecting anything. Just looking forward to a good game and hoping.
Hi Windmills; once a Wasp, always a Wasp! Played '84-'89, skippered the "B XV", vice-captained the "Casuals".
Anyone who saw the season-saving tackle Varndell made on Vesty at Bath could put up a good argument about his defensive capability. I suspect it's more his personality and I understand that, he can come across as an arrogant wanker at times.
