    Oh, dear. You have to smile, don't you? No fly-halfs & now no captain. Actually, FWIW, it's good news really as Stevens is a far more dynamic presence & worth his place in the XV. There's no way Ashton would've dropped his captain, so this is something of a silver lining.

    You get your wish. Farrell to start at 10.

    Dear lord. That it's come to this. English union goes into its most important game since the last world cup with a bloke who's never played a senior game at fly-half ever in situ. I'd like to know when was the last time he played first receiver in league, if it comes to that. I don't want to labour the point, but given Sarries don't see fit to play him there, why are England suddenly starting now?

    Two scrum-halves on the bench seems excessive too, but I'm guessing that they're the last two men standing, back-wise.

    I have a feeling that his size has something to do with the decision, given the opposition, and that Mike Catt will end up doing a lot of work at 10. It is typical of English rugby since 2003.

    We're going to get mauled.

    Lol. I'm a bit worried for Ashton's health actually, 'cos he's behaving like a man who doesn't care anymore. "Gomersall as back-up kicker? **** it, why not. Won't matter to me soon"

    Where to from here you've got to ask?

    I'll bet a lot of money that people won't want to sack Ashton because he wasn't given enough time before the WC but I don't think he made us any better in the time that he was given. We've got to slice and dice this entire setup I think and actually get someone in who will have the nads to make hard decisions.

    If that is a foreigner then so be it. And for goodness sake, don't even suggest going back to Sir Clive.....

    Johnno for mine, with maybe someone like John Mitchell as his number two.

    He's a student of the game & looked fit to be tied in the studio last night.
