Stuart Lancaster should have free reign with squad selection, says Stuart Barnes

Stuart Lancaster should have free reign with squad selection, says Stuart Barnes

It is quite ridiculous that Stuart Lancaster is tied to the old heads of agreement between club and country; tied to such an extent that he has to name the EPS this Thursday, in line with the agreement, you understand.

Hi Stuart, Compliments of the season to you. Stuart why is George Ford ( Bath Flyhalf) not given a crack in the English jumper. I watch him play and this boy far better flyhalf than Farrel. I don't think Farrel has the game management skills to take England to the next level. If England wants to compete with the Blacks and Boks the need a quality 10. There pack can compete any these two any given day but its out wide we the coming short. Looking forward to the Six Nations.

Hi Stuart. Surely with all the young talent coming through the ranks at Exeter at the moment, namely Nowell Ewers and Slade, Lancaster need to get them in the set up now if he is serious about using them for the World Cup. Also why are all these Gloucestet players still managing to stay in the England setup with the club performing as they are?
