QQQ, you're right but that wasn't really what I meant. My post was misleading - I sort of left a bit out. smiling smiley

What I should have said was, there's a bit more to it than form. Rather than just give people a go who appear to be 'on form' they'll be looking at player's performances in detail in an attempt to assess whether they really have the ability to step or whether they are just very good club players. And also they probably (you'd hope) have an idea of how they want their national team to play and therefore have to assess which players fit that structure and how the players' styles of play fit together.

Maybe Steffon Armitage was asked to play a different role from that which he's used to but whatever the reason he looked off the pace and consequently out of the game, to me. I'm glad he's getting another chance because he must have been gutted and he is apparently really 'on form'. smiling smiley
