Billy Twelvetrees and brad Barritt ffs. they can't possibly get anywhere near the final squad, surely.

Paracetamol I reckon for England's after coming off the field against Australia.
I wonder what England international Jack Wilshire thinks when he looks at England international Brad Barritt.
England overpowered a weary Australia to end their disappointing autumn campaign on a high and ease the pressure on head coach Stuart Lancaster. Two tries from Ben Morgan and 16 points from the boot of George Ford were the reward for overwhelming scrum supremacy and a far more pragmatic display. After defeats early in the month by New Zealand and South Africa, this was a precious southern-hemisphere scalp for England with the World Cup just eight games away. Australia had more daring and dash with ball in hand, but it is now six defeats in seven Tests for the Wallabies and it will be England with the clear advantage when the two sides meet again in the group stages next year. With skipper Chris Robshaw having his best game of the series, Courtney Lawes and Brad Barritt outstanding in defence and Ford controlling territory with a solid kicking display, Lancaster's men were able to keep a spirited Australia fightback at bay and retain the Cook Cup.

England’s coaches are considering reinforcing their RBS 6 Nations title challenge by unleashing Manu Tuilagi for a Test comeback on Saturday. In a move that underlines England’s new-found riches in midfield, the 22-year-old, who has just returned for Leicester after six months out with injury, may find himself on the bench against Italy in Rome, moving Brad Barritt, another Lions centre who was a mainstay of Stuart Lancaster’s side, even further down the pecking order.
Don't care what he does in any game, Twelvetrees is not as good as Brad Barritt or Manu Tuilagi
What an idiotic piece Billy and Marko Vunipola? Manu Tuiglagi? Brad Barritt? Immature article.
England team named to play Ireland February 20, 2014 England have made two changes to their squad for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations match against Ireland at Twickenham Stadium. Tight-head prop David Wilson replaces Dan Cole, who will require three months rest from rugby before further assessment on his neck, while the uncapped George Ford comes onto the bench for Brad Barritt. England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “We are excited about being back at our home after two games on the road. The Twickenham crowd during the November internationals was superb and I’m sure it’ll be the same again on Saturday. “We have been forced into one change and we wish Dan Cole all the best for his recovery. However, David Wilson is an experienced international with 31 caps and he showed in his three starts against Argentina last year what he can do. “It’s great to have George involved. He has settled in well and we are confident in his ability should he get his opportunity from the bench.” England (v Ireland, ...
In Rugby, Ireland Coach Joe Schmidt has named an unchanged side to face England this Saturday at Twickenham. A win will give the Irish a Triple Crown. On the bench Iain Henderson takes over from the injured Dan Touhy while the uncapped Jordi Murphy replaces Tommy O'Donnell. England have made one change to their starting line-up. Bath prop David Wilson comes into the team for the injured Dan Cole. Fly-half George Ford is likely to make his debut, as he's on the bench instead of Brad Barritt.

Twelvetrees: “You’d be stupid to get too comfortable with your place” February 13, 2014 Billy Twelvetrees has been ever present in the England squad since making his international debut at the start of 2013. His cap tally is now in double figures and the Gloucester playmaker was the only centre to start more than five England games last year. Manu Tuilagi, Brad Barritt, Jonathan Joseph and Kyle Eastmond played alongside Twelvetrees in England’s midfield in 2013 but he is very much enjoying his current partnership with Northampton Saints star Luther Burrell. “The combination has been working well on the pitch and it’s been really loud between myself, Luther and Owen. Luther’s been brilliant since he’s come in and I’m looking forward to hopefully playing alongside him again.” Both players, along with the other thirteen starters of England’s opening two Six Nations fixtures, have been kept in the England camp this week, a strong indication that Stuart Lancaster will name an unchanged li ...

First of all, why are England finishing games with their weakest team on the field? When the top five teams in the world play each other, there is a 90 per cent chance that with 20 minutes left to play the score will be within five points. England conceded the final try with substitute Alex Goode at full back, sub Brad Barritt (an inside centre) at outside centre and centre Luther Burrell on the wing. Joe Marler was having one of his best games; Danny Care was the catalyst for England's comeback; Dylan Hartley was still launching himself into rucks; and Billy Vunipola was providing crucial yards over the gainline. They were all taken off with significant time remaining. Yes, substitutes Ben Morgan and Tom Youngs had an impact, but when you make changes you can lose your leadership, attacking structure, defensive organisation and composure. Changes should be made for fatigue, injury or tactics. Secondly, who is making the decisions? I saw a string of coaches running up and down the stairs trying to commun ...

Strong Saffa flavour as Sarries prepare for Sharks Written by Rob Otto (robdylan) Saracens have named their 23-man squad to face the Sharks at Allianz Park in London on Saturday 25 January. Former England lock Steve Borthwick captains a strong outfit that includes former Sharks Brad Barritt and Alistair Hargreaves, among a slew of other South African players. Barritt, Matt Stevens and Mouritz Botha are both capped England internationals, while Neil de Kock and Schalk Brits have both played for the Springboks. The back row, in particular, should be an all Saffa affair as former Bull Jacques Burger, one-time Lions captain Ernst Joubert and WP exports Nick Fenton-Wells and Justin Melck have all been named. Saracens squad: Backs: Chris Wyles, David Strettle, Michael Tagicakibau, Marcelo Bosch, Brad Barritt, Duncan Taylor, Sam Stanley, Charlie Hodgson, Neil de Kock, Richard Wigglesworth. Forwards: Richard Barrington, Nick Auterac, Schalk Brits, Jamie George, Matt Stevens, Petrus Du Plessis, Steve Borthwick (ca ...
He was described during the autumn internationals as simply keeping the England No 13 shirt warm for the injured Manu Tuilagi but Saracen Joel Tomkins has very different ideas. With Lions duo Brad Barritt and Tuilagi injured for the autumn internationals – boss Stuart Lancaster turned to the inexperienced pairing of Tomkins and Gloucester’s Billy Twelvetrees to fire England’s back-line. Without looking fluid at times – Tomkins, who made his international debut in the win over Australia in November and Twelvetrees inspired England to wins over the Wallabies and Argentina, while they even ran the world’s No 1 team close, New Zealand, close at Twickenham.
England! Battered and humiliated after their thumping in the Millennium Stadium against Wales at the close of the Six Nations, England have turned their 2013 around since March with a run of four wins and a single loss to the All Blacks at Twickenham. Three of those four wins came against Argentina - two in South America and one back in south-west London - as Stuart Lancaster's mission to build greater depth to his squad ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup continued. Shorn of a total of 12 players to the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia by the time Brad Barritt, Billy Twelvetrees and Christian Wade had been flown out (and not including Dylan Hartley's suspension), Lancaster was able to let the likes of Marland Yarde, Kyle Eastmond, Billy Vunipola and more get a taste of Test rugby against the Pumas in their own backyard. Winning the a Test series in Argentina for the first time in 32 years is not an accomplishment to be sniffed at. The tour was also a chance for Lancaster to let the likes of Chris ...
Stuart Lancaster’s options in the centres are dropping like flies but Billy Twelvetrees insists he is only getting stronger with the Six Nations around the corner. The 25-year-old Gloucester man enjoyed an up and down set of autumn internationals, putting in the worst performance of his young England career against Australia but bouncing back to impress against Argentina and the All Blacks. And with Manu Tuilagi, Joel Tomkins and Brad Barritt all currently stuck on the treatment table, the chance is there for the former Leicester Tiger to carry some momentum into the Six Nations.
Yeah, we have great players in every position with great back ups, just need Brad Barritt back! and the internationals!
.I think tomkins has had his chips goes to show how good brad Barritt is.miss him when not there
Never thought I'd say this but we miss Brad Barritt. No-nonsense and gives a platform. 12Trees and Tomkins not good enough for Test rugby.
Need Brad Barritt and Manu back, the centres today were awful
Where's Brad Barritt when you need him, this game was made for his love of tackling and never passing the ball if contact is an option

England since 2002: teams down the years November 14, 2013 Whilst trawling through the archives for a suitable piece this week, we had a look at previous England against New Zealand previews, and in the process stumbled across the team announcements.

England could be without Manu Tuilagi for the entire Six Nations after the Leicester centre was ruled out until February with a chest injury. It was hoped the torn pectoral muscle sustained on Premiership duty in September would heal without surgery and that he would return to action by next month. But the 22-year-old has been forced to undergo an operation to have the damage repaired, placing his involvement in the Six Nations in jeopardy. "Manu is probably out for three months," Leicester's director of rugby Richard Cockerill said. Even if Tuilagi's recovery progresses as expected, he will face a race against time to play any role in the Six Nations. England's final two matches are against Wales on 9 March and Italy on 15 March, offering their main strike runner little scope to regain match fitness before the championship ends. "Manu Tuilagi has not been able to recover fully from the pec muscle injury with rehab and he had surgery yesterday to repair that," Cockerill said. "He had a reaction right at t ...

England’s 23 for Australia: has Lancaster got it right? October 30, 2013 On Tuesday night, Stuart Lancaster announced his 23-man squad to take on Australia in the opening match of the QBE Internationals, and selection debates which have been ongoing for the last month have finally been put to bed. Thanks to injuries to stalwarts such as Manu Tuilagi and Brad Barritt, and the impressive form of a number of players on the cusp of the England’s first XV, this selection has felt like one of the most highly anticipated in recent years. The losses of both Alex Corbisiero (knee) and Geoff Parling (concussion) to injury have come at a bad time, but the silver lining is that both players are expected to recover in time for England’s second test of the series, when they take on Argentina at Twickenham. They also both play in positions of depth for England, and although they will be missed, there are other areas of the squad where injuries would arguably be more impactful. Mako Vunipola will be eager to replic ...
England’s central dilemma: solving the midfield crisis September 25, 2013 On 17th November last year, England lined-up to take on Australia at Twickenham with Brad Barritt and Manu Tuilagi wearing 12 and 13 respectively. In the space of a couple of weeks, they have both been side-lined with injury, leaving head coach Stuart Lancaster with a selection dilemma in the midfield. If Barritt’s place in the starting line-up was questionable, Tuilagi’s name was surely one of the first on the teamsheet given his ability to do things on the rugby pitch no other player in the world is capable of – see last weekend’s brutish burst against Newcastle for proof of that. So where does this leave Lancaster et al? His current centre options in the EPS are Billy Twelvetrees, Kyle Eastmond, Anthony Allen, Jonathan Joseph, Joel Tomkins, Luther Burrell and Elliot Daly, leaving plenty of potential combinations. Barritt’s replacement seems fairly obvious. Billy Twelvetrees has been around the England squad for a whil ...

British & Irish Lions O’Connell ruled out of test series with broken arm Posted on Jun 24, 2013 | 0 comments O'connell Ireland lock Paul O’Connell has been ruled out of the rest of the test series with a broken arm. It is a huge blow for the tourists, who lose a priceless source of on-field leadership. O’Connell was set to feature in his eighth straight Lions test, but instead will watch from the stands. There is no plan to call up a replacement at this stage. Geoff Parling has been stood down from the Rebels match and is likely to take O’Connell’s place in the test side – Ian Evans comes into the line-up for Tuesday, with Tom Croft onto the bench.

Brumbies v Lions: Lions player ratings Posted on Jun 18, 2013 15: Rob Kearney: 7 Probably the only Lions back to come out of the game with any credit. Kicked with power and precision, and took a couple of his own up-and-unders. Gatland’s a big fan, but it could still be too late to force his way into the test squad. 14. Christian Wade: 4.5 You’ve got to feel sorry for Wade, who got very little ball and even less space to work in. We all know how good he is, but after such a late arrival and no time to gel with the rest of the backline he was always going to be up against it. Missed crucial tackle for the Brumbies try. 13. Brad Barritt: 4 Anonymous may as well be his middle name. Made one metre from two carries, and four tackles. That was it. 12. Billy Twelvetrees: 4.5 Like Wade, desperately unlucky to have been thrown in quite so far at the deep end. His running stats are even more painful than Barritt’s: two metres from a whopping nine carries. Obviously employed as Gatland’s crash-ball twelve, h ...
Oh dear lions, that game sorted the men from the boys I feel. Bet people might not be thinking Tipuric should start at 7 and Hogg is a decent back up 10. Brad Barritt should be no where near the lions especially at 13. Like the Aussie commentators said they dont know how to attack (play gat ball) without the big centres.
Here comes the cavalry! Corbisiero, Hibbard, Lydiate all introduced. Shocked no backs have been introduced, that's the real problem area for the Lions. Once again, though, it shouldn't come as a surprise. Seriously, don't want to kick a man when they're down, but there has to have been better options out there than Brad Barritt. Smokey
Lions' squad to face the Brumbies Tomorrow. It's only a second string side with the big names rested for the test match on Saturday. With about 11 names guaranteed to start on Saturday, there's still a chance for a few players to force their way in. The likes of Sean O'Brien, Justin Tipuric, Rob Kearney, Simon Zebo, and even young Christan Wade could force a spot on the bench. Toby Falateau needs a huge game if he has any hope of even starting the first test which is unlikely even if he does. A weak team to face probably the form team in Super rugby at the minute, so they'll have to be careful. The backline is weak apart from Kearney and the experienced Williams, so this will be a tough game, and I see a first defeat for the Lions here. The player to watch is Rob Kearney, still a more complete full back than Leigh Halfpenny and a good performance could force Halfpenny out onto the wing. Team to face The Brumbies. 15 Rob Kearney 14 Christan Wade 13 Brad Barritt 12 Billy Twelvetrees 11 Shane Williams 10 Stu ...

Six Nations England v Italy: England player ratings Posted on Mar 11, 2013 15. Alex Goode – 4.5 A wobbly afternoon for the Saracens full-back. Butchered a couple of huge overlaps with poor decision-making or poor execution. Unlikely to be sacrificed for such a big game next weekend, but needs a better performance. 14. Chris Ashton – 5 Better, but still not good enough really. He was not helped by poor decisions from men inside him, but still does not look at his best – despite almost scoring after good support work. Outclassed by opposite number McClean, never more so than for the try when he was found woefully out of position. 13. Manu Tuilagi – 5.5 A quieter afternoon for Tuilagi who was largely marshalled well by the duo of Gonzalos for Italy. That said, even though he didn’t make any obvious clean breaks he still never takes a backwards step. England need to find a way to use him more. 12. Brad Barritt – 5 Another to squander a giant overlap towards the end of the first half, he does have ...
I love players like Conrad Smith & Brad Barritt. So underrated & without them their teams would fall apart
People slating Brad Barritt's selection? Carries well and is a defensive beast. What more do you want in midfield?
Love the Brad Barritt vt on Incredible player!
Brad barritt is definatley the best tackler since Jonny wilkinson !?
if Chris Ashton continues with his recent form, our back line could target him, its Brad Barritt we need to look out for.
Brad Barritt needs to learn to pass. Goode needs to learn to straighten up and actually run. The rest of the backs need to communicate!!
Commentator "brad Barritt has to give it there" he's never going to, shouldn't be starting for England.
Brad Barritt is possibly the most average player in the Six Nations
Have never been impressed by Brad Barritt. Billy Twelvetrees is much better
Why take Brad Barritt off ? What's wrong with u Lancaster Wanted him to stay on x
18-11 66mins Billy Twelvetrees replaces Brad Barritt in centre & England have scrum just inside own 10m
I swear brad Barritt bleeds every time he plays, warrior
Billy Twelvetrees on for Brad Barritt. Still 18-11 to England, 66 mins gone.

Brad Barritt comes off for Billy Twelvetrees - that I did not expect
Brad Barritt gets ball = end of backline move = a recurring theme. Eng being made to look average by an Azzuri side who REALLY want this.
You know things are bad when Brad Barritt misses a tackle
he's almost as good as Brad Barritt
And the beautiful Brad Barritt of course
has Brad Barritt actually passed the ball yet?
do you think Brad Barritt had your poster on his wall as a kid? ;-)
That is why brad barritt shouldnt be a lion. Helps as a centre if you can pass. Awful awful game again. 6n in gen has been pathetic stuff
Ashton is so out of form, Brad Barritt is not an international standard rugby player.
St. George wasn't English - and neither are half the England Rugby team. When the English supporters rock up at Twickenham on 25th of February, they will supposedly be supporting their national team. They will be supporting a team made up of English, South Africans, New Zealanders, and a Samoan. More like the Commonwealth then. The English of course have a history of plundering resources from other countries, and not just in Rugby Union. Mouritz Botha, Matthew Stevens, Manu Tuilagi, Dylan Hartley, Brad Barritt, Thomas Waldrom – all (apart from Tuilagi) are rejects from their respective countries. How can any die-hard Englishman or woman who belts out ‘God Save the Queen’ after they have taken luncheon in the West Car Park support this team?.LoL
England squad update Elliot Daly (London Wasps), Will Fraser (Saracens) and Joel Tomkins (Saracens) have been called into the England camp at Pennyhill Park this evening ahead of Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations match against France at Twickenham Stadium (5pm).

Good evening all On Tuesday the RFU and O2 unveiled the biggest ever campaign to get England playing touch rugby - O2 Touch. The campaign will be supported by a team of players - The Untouchables, who feature a mix of male and female athletes including leading free runners, a choreographer to world-stars such as Rihanna and Dizzee Rascal and a former Leicester Tiger. Joining The Untouchables for their inaugural performance was Strictly Come Dancing star Flavia Cacace and England Rugby players Mike Brown, Brad Barritt and Alex Goode. Broadening the reach and appeal of rugby through Touch is one of the key focus areas for the RFU to create a lasting legacy for the sport in the build up to and beyond the Rugby World Cup (RWC) in 2015. The RFU, working with O2, is committed to establishing 75 new O2 Touch Centres by June 2013 and a further 100 during 2013/14 and we are thrilled that you are part of this programme. England Rugby Player Brad Barritt, speaking at the launch with team mates Alex Goode and Mi ...
Don't underestimate how important Brad Barritt is to England "Barritt has made more tackles (104) for England than all other centres combined since the start of Lancaster’s era. Manu Tuilagi is next best with 48 tackles in 11 appearances." Not sure I've made 104 playing my whole life!
Unsung Barritt central to England's renaissance By Martyn Herman LONDON, Feb 12 (Reuters) - The likes of Owen Farrell, Chris Ashton and Manu Tuilagi are the headline grabbers but just as vital to England's renaissance under Stuart Lancaster has been the form of no-nonsense centre Brad Barritt. While Farrell kicked all the points in the 12-6 victory over Ireland on Sunday, South Africa-born Barritt was instrumental in nullifying danger-man Brian O'Driscoll as the former world champions won in Dublin for the first time in 10 years. Barritt's rising stock meant a fit-again Tuilagi had to make do... ~SportsMan
Ireland v England 6 Nations 2013: England player ratings Posted on Feb 11, 2013 15. Alex Goode: 7 Much better from Goode. Assured under the high ball and composed in his general play in what were horrific conditions for the backs. 14. Chris Ashton: 4 How has he survived this long without being able to tackle? Was shocking in defense, although thankfully the conditions dictated his missed tackles didn’t lead to anything. Anonymous in attack. 13. Brad Barritt: 6 More sterling defensive work from Barritt, in a game made for him. It was tight, all about making the hard yards and shackling the opposition on the gain-line – both of which he did well. 12. Billy Twelvetrees: 6 Not quite the fireworks of last week but a solid follow-up performance from the man known as 36. A couple of solid runs and a big kick were his only real contributions. 11. Mike Brown: 6 Once again top of the metres-made stats, Brown doesn’t tend to do anything that takes the breath away, but rather the basics very well. On a day like ...

Six Nations 2013: England can still be a threat without Manu Tuilagi against Scotland, says Brad Barritt
Shame to see Manu Tuilagi on the bench. I'd play him over Brad Barritt any day of the week.
Billy Twelvetrees and Brad Barritt will start in midfield for England on Sunday against Ireland with Manu Tuilagi on the bench
I really do not know why Lancaster is even debating the England centre pairing! Brad Barritt and Manu Tuilagi. That's simple! One can only hope he remembers the all blacks game!
Sports News: Lewis Hamilton's full testing debut for Mercedes suffered a setback after he crashed into a tyre barrier. Gloucester have signed promising Worcester flanker Matt Kvesic for next season. England coach Stuart Lancaster has kept his midfield options open by including Manu Tuilagi, Brad Barritt and Billy Twelvetrees in his 25 man squad for Sunday's Six Nations match against Ireland. Mark Cavendish moved into the overall lead of the Tour of Qatar after sealing back to back sprint wins with a comfortable victory on stage 4.
No Manu no cry: England can win without Tuilagi, says Brad Barritt
England Lancaster wants Twelvetrees to make most of debut 31 January 2013, 3:46 pm By Sportsbeat England head coach Stuart Lancaster has told Billy Twelvetrees to make the most of his debut in a red rose jersey against Scotland in their RBS 6 Nations opener at Twickenham. Twelvetrees has been handed his first England cap as part of a midfield partnership with Brad Barritt as England go in search of a fourth-straight Calcutta Cup win. The 24-year-old was called upon after Manu Tuilagi, who scored in the 38-21 win over New Zealand last time out, was ruled out with an ankle problem. Twelvetrees’ inclusion is one of just two changes to the side that beat the Kiwis with Joe Marler replacing Alex Corbisiero, who has a knee problem, at loosehead prop. Lancaster insists Twelvetrees’ debut is just reward for his form with Gloucester domestically and he wants to lay a case for more starts against Scotland. “Billy gets a start and it is a great opportunity for him. With Manu being out he has got a chance to pu ...
Farrell starts at fly half against Sale Sharks Saracens return to Vicarage Road on Sunday when Sale Sharks are the visitors for the Aviva Premiership round 13 clash, kick off is 3pm. In team news ahead of the game, Owen Farrell starts the match at fly half while Steve Borthwick returns to captain the side from the second row. Schalk Brits also returns at hooker and Richard Wigglesworth gets the nod at scrum half. The only other change from the side that beat Northampton Saints last weekend sees James Short named on the wing in place of the rested Chris Ashton. "Sale Sharks come to us on the back of a win over Worcester Warriors and with quality players all over the pitch, they are a dangerous side," said Saracens Director of Rugby Mark McCall. "The odd result apart, they have been involved in many close games and we know they will fight for everything on the pitch on Sunday, so we have to be ready." Saracens line-up vs Sale Sharks 15 Chris Wyles 14 James Short 13 Joel Tomkins 12 Brad Barritt 11 David Stre ...

Love this from Ackfords piece in the Telegraph on Sat - Brad Barritt: Was banged hard by JP Pietersen and the tackle seemed to unsettle him
Brad Barritt a slightly more adventurous version of Jamie Noon,so be can go. Can only play one of Burns/Flood though. So yep, maybe
Vunipola, Tuilagi, Brad Barritt, Corbisiero, Mauritz Botha..English Rugby Players, and we are still crap!
How does Brad Barritt get picked to play for
Brad Barritt is the worst attacking back in the world, apart from Owen Farrell.
England need to take of Brad Barritt and bring on JJ and realise they are not going to run through the SA midfield
JP hit Brad so hard the whole Barritt family tree shook.
Brad Barritt is so basic and predictable
Brad Barritt needs a new liver after that tackle by JP!
JP Pietersen you beauty. What a tackle on Brad Barritt
England Rugby team can keep Brad Barritt, he is useless.

The only highlight of this half was the JP Pietersen's hit on Brad Barritt. Either than that, I wouldn't pay to see that half of nonsense.
Brad Barritt is the biggest loss to SA rugby.
it's never really changed. Brad Barritt - how is he near the side, offers absolutely nothing
Great tackle JP Pietersen on brad barritt
Just woke up in time to see JP Pietersen obliterate Brad Barritt
Brad Barritt how you feeling right now?
Also, I think Brad Barritt now agrees with you. That hit 0_o
I still don't know why Brad Barritt plays for England. Him and Tuilagi seem far too similar and lack creativity
That was a huge hit on Brad Barritt by JP Pietersen! Good job Barritt is hard as nails & can shrug it off! Eventually!
So Brad Barritt, you have been smashed by JP Pietersen.
6-9 30mins As England attack, JP Pietersen makes massive tackle on Brad Barritt to take him down
Brad Barritt's attack is as dynamic as a snail on ice.
Eben Etzebeth smashed backwards by Brad Barritt & Ben Morgan. Ok, it cost us 3 points but it sends a message.
Sad to see Brad Barritt playing for England, I remember him playing Craven Week rugga for Natal and high school rugby for Kearsney
All the best Cappy, please show Brad Barritt why he didnt make the Springboks LOL!
Brad Barritt apparently still the best 12 in England. Defend for Victory!!
Alex Goode, Chris Ashton and Brad Barritt retain places in England XV to play South Africa. Vunipola, Botha and Farrell on bench.
If you're Brad Barritt the podcast is probably the least of your many worries...
If you're you come out of this episode very well indeed. If you're Brad Barritt, probably best not to listen.
Dan Cole is on there as well, I would probably have Owen Farrell, Brad Barritt, Tom Youngs and Joe Marler on the bench x
Anyone got any questions for Courtney Lawes, Brad Barritt, or maybe even Joe Marler let me know & ill ask them on Monday!

Some time ago on another site "Supersupporter" I chastised the management of The Sharks for messing up the careers of several of their backline players over a period of years. The likes of Brett Russell, Brad Barritt, Frans Steyn, Ruan Pienaar and others have had to leave the franchise in order to play in their preferred position. In the case of Russell, he was ruined by the time he left and branded as a wing whereas he had been a gifted flyhalf and fullback. The Sharks are doing the same right now with Pat Lambie who will be lost to the Sharks unless he is allowed to settle into either fullback or flyhalf.
