The England team that scares me.

Okay, so whatever England team they pick for the weekend will scare me. But just for fun here’s a team that might tempt me to sell my ticket to and Englishman and run for the hills.

Sheridan
Mears
Stevens
Shaw
Kennedy
Haskell
Lipman
Narraway
Care
Wilkinson
Vainakolo
Flood
Tait
Simpson Daniel
Cipriani

Actually that’s probably just about possible with the training squad they have. Though I admit they would be vastly short on experience. More quaking through the week.

  1. I feel the compulsion to write the companion piece titled: “The Scotland team that scares me!

  2. Whereas, now we will have the same old crap. De Luca’s out so its a perfect excuse for Frankie to put out a Henderson/Morrison/Webster centre axis….

    If he does, I’ll cry.

  3. Al haha I know the feeling. Jonny, I reckon Morrison might be worth a punt off the bench at some point. Sure he’s not silky skills like De Luca, but he seems to have made a few good line breaks in the A game, in the manner that Henderson is supposed to do!

  4. The actual England team picked is not a million miles away, but no Sinbad or Narraway plus the usual oldish heads…
