I find that disappointing. 2 Saracens Fly Halves and yet the September Premiership player of the month is not included.
I hope Eddie Jones knows what he is doing.

Thought Jones was a breath of fresh air when he came in, but now I find his rugby by numbers style of play boring & predictable, & some of his thoughts on selection baffling.

Christian Wade has apparently left wasps to pursue the golden goose in NFL.

It's getting to be a bit of a joke now.  I understand that we have to protect the head at all costs, but what we're seeing now is tacklers bending their knees to hit the ball-carrier at chest level, but the ball carrier also dropping - either in anticipation of the contact, in the case of Tommy Taylor and Will Spencer, or as a result of the primary tackle in the Cipriani instance yesterday - and the contact therefore becoming head-to-head or shoulder-to-head.  I don't believe Spencer or Cipriani did anything wrong, certainly nothing that would have been deemed dangerous or illegal only 12-18 months ago.
