    Just having a look at England's forwards options in the Eddie Jones era, and the depth of talent - particuarly in the 2nd row and back row - looks pretty scary.

    Can see England building a very formidable pack once again. The only downside is that there are some very able players who might not get the opportunities for heir country that they might deserve.

    Who know how it will pan out, but I would speculate, that his first and second choice packs might look something like this in a couple of years' time :

    1st 8
    Vunipola George Brookes
    Itoje (c) Launchberry
    Hughes Vunipola Underhill

    2nd 8
    Auterac/Marler Hartley Hill/Cole
    Lawes Kruis
    Ewers Beaumont Clifford

    And that's without robshaw, haskell and morgan !
