RWC '23 England Team

Updated: Oct 13, 2023

Speculations about team selections are usually based on knowledge, so, the England team being suggested for Sunday's quarter-final versus Figi confuses me.

Bearing in mind that Fijian players are usually fast, well-built, strong and agile I question Smith as no.15. Yes, he's a creative player, which is a talent we need, but his stature, not his valour, must make him a questionable choice to play at fullback. Similarly, George Ford had a great game against Argentina but at this stage he is physically too lightweight to be considered.


My choices:-


Steward

Malins

Lawrence

Tuilagi

Arundell

Farrell

Care

Earl

Curry

Ludlum

Lawes

Itoje

Genge

George

Sinckler


Subs


Dan

Marler

Chessum

Ribbans

Underhill

Vunipola

Mitchell

Smith


I think we need to be able to maintain our dynamic tackling by bringing on more strength in the second half. Hence, Chessum, Ribbans Underhill and Vunipola. Dan and Marler to cover front row with Smith and Mitchell utility backs.


WHAT'S YOUR TEAM AND WHY?
