Eh? England are vulnerable with Daly in the backfield to any team with a decent kickchase, and I am not convinced he will improve fast enough to remove that risk.

Plus, if he gets injured then the total number of international caps at fullback that any other players apart from Brown or Goode have can be counted on one hand.

England had a two year spell with one defeat with Brown in the backfield, followed by a year when the backfield worked fine but the breakdown (and altitude conditioning) lost them game after game.

And all this talk of players like Kvesic being in the mix is just insanity. The build up to the RWC is not the time to suddenly decide that you want to try a player you've ignored for four years - except (as appears to be the case with Heinz) if you're taking a look at your emergency options.
