I was feeling quite bullish earlier in the week, what with the prospect of Manu Tuilagi’s return to a winning team. But, with Tuilagi getting splinters in his arse on bench duty and with Ben Morgan crocked, I do now wonder who is going to get England over the gainline, especially given that out wide we appear to have all the pace of a tectonic shift.
And the Irish must really be quaking at the prospect of Thomas the Tank Engine emerging from the bench.
I have a horrible feeling in my waters...
