Next joke!

Although, he is correct in saying that England’s best fullback isn’t going to the World Cup... Alex Goode.

I believe if Mike Brown had played for us he would have been a cult figure adored by GR supporters.
The GR problem with him is, of course, he plays for Quins and the perception he never passed to Jonny May. If May had been a Leicester player all of his international career I don’t suppose he would have taken the Glaws flak he has.
Imo he has been an outstanding brave full back who has served his club and country well.

I do understand how both he and Danny Care must be feeling but they've had their 15 minutes of fame and some and although both good players for what ever reason not selected for RWC 2019 but I do wish they'd keep their views out of the press because all it does is stir things up when the squad selected need to focus on the task ahead.

Alastair Hignell...to be best involves more than just turning up and doing your job.

Or did I misunderstand the question.............. ;)
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

MB neatly misses out the behavioural transgression of having a fight with Ben Teo whilst on RWC training camp.

Yes a good full-back BUT possibly not always a team player - including reluctance to pass the ball to his wings !!
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

There’s a picture from the Premiership launch today with 4 players from the teams who are all probably better full backs than Daly. Actually I think all 12 players in the picture are better full backs than Daly :mrgreen:

Brown WAS good, but he’s now past his best. If he was in the Squad l would be very concerned.
I started off with nothing and I’ve still got most of it left.
