During the build up to England’s third Autumn international, the main stream media have reported that a full strength England team will be selected with a view to powering Japan out of the game. After all a win is the most important outcome; or is it

Here’s a selection to try out some new combinations and allow certain players to get the international game time required to add value to England’s 2019 RWC bid

15 Daly
14 Cokanasiga
13 Lozowski
12 Farrell
11 Nowell
10 Ford
9 Wigglesworth
8 Mercer
7 Underhill
6 Wilson
5 Lawes
4 Ewels
3 Williams
2 Hartley
1 Moon

Giving Wilson time at 6 would be a smart move as his performance at 8 thus far have shown him to be top of his game

The second half line out versus the All Blacks was disappointing for Kruis and Itoje; let’s see what an alternative set of locks can deliver

Farrell and Lozowski’s club understanding will provide a new dimension in the centre

Wigglesworth’s box kicking will set up a great platform for Coknasiga

Let’s hope we do see some new combinations
