Surely Dan Cole will be in his forties by the next world cup?

Ha ha ha he will be 32 going on 40, he will still start as like Owen Franks for NZ, he is still the best and most consistent scrummager and you want an experienced TH especially at a WC knock out game

Ha ha ha i think Eddie Jones is smart enough to know not to jettison a TH who might have close to 100 caps by the next WC and has 77 caps at the moment.

If he does not go, who will replace him, Kyle sinckler who has 5/6 caps and has a temper problem, Williams who has 2 caps, Paul Hill who does not even start at Northampton, Collier who has one cap or two caps. What will happen when we play NZ potentially in the SF and we come against a team with a TH with over 100 caps in Franks. That would be a stupid decision if Eddie decided to do that and the one thing Eddie is not, is stupid.

Cole seems less and less effective with every cap. Kyle will have overtaken him long before the next RWC. 2 years is a long time to address temperament issues, and an ever longer time to get away with doing little other than scrummage, especially when you no longer stand out in that area.

As much as I'd like to agree with you wrt Sinckler, KQ: Marler hasn't, really, and he's had several years...

Don't be silly. We don't go into games worrying about how doing something silly any more.

His hair is different. He still gets cards and needs to play more rugby and get involved (in silliness) less...

You don't think Faz is a nailed on starter Rodney. I think him, Billy and maro are the first names on the team sheet. No way Faz does not start at the next world cup. The only question is whether it is at 10 or 12.

The last 2 times EJ started Farrell at 10 he had moved him inside by half-time so he clearly doesn't trust him at 10, and with Smith coming along nicely no-one is guaranteed a place at 10 or 12, not even the over-rated Farrell. To say any player is guaranteed a place in a tournament over 24 months away is naÔve, every single player is human and can lose form or favour in a matter of weeks.

As one who often pulls people up on their facts, perhaps you should reconsider your post in the light of Jo's zero yellow cards this season

It will be interesting to see if you're man enough to admit you're wrong.

We've only had a handful of matches. He did give away a really pointless and idiotic yellow card for the Lions over the summer...

When was Dan cole's last yellow, or Will Collier? Props get yellow cards Jammy, Marler no longer gets more than most.


But good to see your little cabal still got each others' backs.

So back to my original point - Clifford was on oxygen on the pitch. We could be really screwed in the back row come call ups.

Hang on, the conversation was about Joe doing stupid things. Cole's not particularly known for idiotic yellows like Joe, and I can't remember Will ever getting one for non-technical offences. Joe, on the other hand, did do something stupid and dirty in NZ to get a yellow and blotted his copybook. It was only a few matches ago so it's a little early to say he doesn't do it any more. It's far too early in this season to tell.

This is silly. I mean sure, I'm friends with QP and a couple of others on here, but I have no idea who Bolly-Quin is and couldn't even tell you if I tend to agree or disagree with them. I'm afraid this is just an ordinary disagreement, you don't need to go looking for conspiracy.

Cole is a bit Teflon. He seems to get away with a lot of things that other players would be carded for.

Apart from the one he got from the Lions, he's had a "retrospective" version this season and has had quite a few (10) during his career. I don't wish to deliberately tarnish is reputation, but he's a bit of a joker that needs winding in during a season that has seen us penalised more than most. I'd rather see him put 100% into the game, rather than wind up apponents, though ,desirable as the "edge" is.

I'd be more than "man" enough, Stoops, to admit I am wrong, but can't help thinking that Quins profligacy with penalties this season needs some attention. And our props are hardly leading by example.

As for Jammy, I do like the occasional dodger, but, as with JG, can't confess to any bias towards or away from his postings...

Cheers, Stoops. Old chap.
