What does the latest development mean for our men's chances?


I suspect not a lot. Eddie remains deliberately enigmatic in his PR. Maybe he wants to see a bit more of what Tom Dunn can do -I certainly hope so- but it remains to be seen if Anthony and Sam's detachment to "extra conditioning" implies any reduction in status.

Both have had interrupted seasons, maybe they have niggles to manage?

They have both been key parts of his plans, so we wait and see how they will fare.

So, 5 of our 6 make the cut.
Ewels has to be next in line if injury disrupts the second row.

Francois Louw has seen action in the Rugby Championship and could yet make the Springbok squad.

Of England's 31 players, Bath has the 3rd highest number after Saracens (8) and Leicester (6). In a break with tradition of the past 4 decades, the majority of those Tigers are backs. If Leicester can sort out their pack issues and Mike Ford can produce the sort of clever strike moves he had Bath using in 2015, they will not be languishing at the bottom of the Prem for long!
