Hes not exactly a kicking option but he creates space, makes yards and pops offloads...It went pretty well when he played there last.

Id then drop biggar from the squad anscombe 10 .....patchell on the bench with parkes and tom williams

Interesting call that Roy moving North to 12 to protect him from the high ball!!!!! He is a big guy but Tuilagi would be licking his lips as George does not look very convincing in the tackle. Hows this for an idea if Scott not fit - Tipuric at 12 Young at 7.

Innovative GPR, but risky. I agree with your comments on North, we need a centre than can tackle. From yesterday's comments almost certain Scott out of the game(not fit for this w/e) so the choice is HP or OW.
We both know where where we stand on that.
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!

The idea of picking North at centre v England personally scares me to death Tuilagi will destroy him. Hope there is no mileage in that option .

north will gain a lot of ground he has quick feet , pace power and size
hes not that bad  a tackler either , far from the shirker he is portrayed as

He has pace and power , but just to pitch him v England  against specialist centres seems crazy unless Gat's has been practising with him in full contact in training as centre.I really cant see that happening-nice photo mind !!Wink

Personally I think it's a crazy idea to think of playing North In the centre.

NNorth has pace and power but without being too disrespectful I feel he has not got the appetite of neing a top class centre, or dare i say a crntre.

My back 3 would be Halfpenny (if half fit and ready) at 15 and Adams and Sanjay on the wings. This wouldn't be to put North in the centre, because I'm not sure I'd even have him  in the 23.

his strike rate speaks for itself as does his lions record

Unfortunately his record won't be out there defending Farrell's kicks.

I’d leave Leigh out of the team, we all know what he brings to the table. Other teams will target him knowing that he’s just back from a long period out with concussion.
