England Team for the Wales Game

2 02 2010

England Coach Martin Johnston named his team for the RBS 6 Nations game vs Wales at Twickenham on Saturday. How did I do with my preferred selection versus the actual team?

So, not bad.  Not sure about Dan Cole in the reserves cos I’ve never seen him play, and think that Louis Deacon should never be in any England squad, particularly ahead of Kennedy, Lawes etc.

Will we win?  The team looks good on paper, but it depends on the mindset of the team on the day.  If they stick to the robotic, by the numbers of England Teams over the past few years, then not a chance.  If they break out, then definately.  The Taffs will be up for it as usual, and the Lee Byrne affair will probably spice it up for them even more.

Prediction?  Ever the optimist, I’m going to say England by 9.
