    That will be a huge test for me :(

    Please don’t let me face that test.

    Cane was the big omission, but even that would have made no difference. Hopefully England can play like artists in the 6 Nations. There' s no excuse not to.

    Two rugby nations I have always loved - Wales and NZ. It is to do with their style of play down the years.

    Yeah, but England mate. Despite everything my country has done to embarrass me over the decades, still...Cry God for England, Harry and Saint George!

    Wish Hampshire had a top.class rugby side. There's a big latent support for the game which will only grow, whether England win or lose. What if oñe of the South African teams that play in the same league as Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Scarlets and so on, were invites to play their Home matches at St Mary's? It would be brilliant for the game in Hampshire as eventually local players would make their way into this team.

    Rugby is very popular in the South West, where men are hard and women are harder, unlike the soft-bellied Southerners.

    Not seeing anything from either SA or Wales for England to be worried about so far.

    So many errors on both sides, very scrappy.

    George North does his hamstring, that won’t help.
