Yeah, so my question is why isn't Cips in there training with the squad, picking up the systems - if he's 3rd choice with only months and a few games (1 competitive) to go before the WC?
Wish he had been on the bench for England this last weekend :-(

And sent home again (obvs).....

England head coach Eddie Jones has retained 26 players to continue their preparations for their final Guinness Six Nations match against Scotland at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday (KO 5pm live on ITV).
 
Ben Spencer (Saracens) has been called up as a replacement to Dan Robson (Wasps) who is out with illness.

Uncapped forward Elliott Stooke is among the group of players retained.

England head into the final round still with a chance of winning the Championship, needing to beat Scotland, while hoping Wales lose to Ireland.

Jones’ side have recorded victories over Ireland, France and Italy in the competition so far.
