ComeAllWithin Board / Re: England Squad announced

I think you're right BQ, his ground skills will develop further the more he plays.

What Dommers does give you is a threat that you have to defend. We often see the oppo put 2 men to watch him at the breakdown or if he's in the loose and with his offload game causes defences problems. What we lacked in the game we shall not mention was a line break or three that would have turned the Boks around!
The score line flattered Bath imo. We were 14 points up with 2 minutes to go and pressing for a try. But they intercepted and scored in the corner. Their kicker, who was pretty good, converted from the touchline while under time pressure as the clock was almost in the red. Sir said there was enough time to restart. From the kickoff we have away a penalty and they kicked into our half. Bath then woke up and we had a few nervous minutes defending. Annoyingly though, Bath got 2 bonus points

I am really surprised that Dombrandt wasn't included.

Perhaps EJ is as confused as we are as to his constant rotation and non-appearance.

I think EJ wants more than a big runner - he seems to like a back row that can switch around a bit and I'm not sure that Dom's groundwork/breakdown skills are as good as some of the other options out there, yet. Perhaps I have missed his tight skills.
Pleased to hear that Lynagh played well after someone on here some months ago gave him a bad report - perhaps he has learnt and developed since.

I honestly don't think any club wouldn't want the players due to association. It seems likely that they'll need to take lower salaries though.

You're probably right, but I do find it hard to believe that Exeter's Rowe would allow Baxter to take his pick from the Sarries squad, for instance...
I'm not sure they will have a choice!

A more sanguine option would be to watch Quins... ;)

Wasn't he in charge of recruitment during his time there?

I don't fully know, but talent spotting and remuneration officers may be different parts of a rugby club - but they are related.

When I used to want to hire/interview and select which person the team I managed needed, the MD and HR decided the pay, partly by "grade" or position advertised, partly by our immediate need and partly on how hard it was to attract that person/similar people. I would have inputs, but the final package was not my decision.
