So, it's squad announcement day - midday officially I think.

Rumour has it that the captain has already been leaked (although may not be a surprise.

Who would you send?
Who's going?
Who isn't going but should be?

Suffering from a small case of mood poisoning, must be something I hate.

Apparently they are going to take Jamie Roberts instead of Jonathan Joseph, what a fucking joke.

I've read exactly the same as you, Launchbury & Joseph are huge omissions in my view.

i think if Fatland bases his squad mainly on a team that just managed to finish above ireland only and a team that while admittedly beating new zealand in a one-off freak stateside game but then got walloped at home then he'll be making a grave error.

If what I read yesterday is anywhere near accurate - and I think they were presenting the actual team as 'suspected' to get around press embargoes - then from memory it listed 10 England players from the 37.

Jamie George is apparently to get the nod over Dylan Hartley - the right decision if you ask me.
George has been far more impressive than Hartley in this year's 6N.
