Charnley, Chase and O'loughlin starting.

Seems harsh on the dropped players. And they have been dropped, for a final.

Playing his best team someone has to lose out.

So we can add Reed and Widdop in the backs and Graham, Roby, Burgess and Westwood in the forwards? Not too shabby. Would have liked to see Hardacre again, maybe allowing Sam to play in the halves. I also think Briscoe is a tiny bit better than Josh.

Ablett and JJB dont excite me but as you point out they shouldnt be near a full strength team.

You don't need both Tomkins and Briscoe in the same defense. One who can't deal wikth a high ball is one too many, never mind two of them.

Having fun riding round on the 100 bus. Should arrive for the second half so if you're sat in our seats- move. Bloody weird Lancy bus services!

Shambles farce and laughing stock don't even begin to cover this. Still on the bloody bus! Last time I ever, ever, ask a Lancy for bus related advice.

I think England are still looking on for a 40 point win or thereabouts but this is a much better French performance.

First try was super structure and play from England, second was pure Tomkins class.

I'm sure even under the old SL / current International rules that should have been scrum France not England (France releasing ball on/after held called). It can only be England ball via a penalty??
