Stuart Lancaster will stick with Chris Robshaw until openside flanker arrives

When it came to the England captain I don't think Stuart Lancaster had any other choice but to stick with Chris Robshaw.

I think the thing that saved Robshaw was Tom Croft getting injured. Had Croft been fit Robshaw would have struggled to get in the side as Croft, Wood and either Morgan or Vunipola would surely have made up the back row.

Well done Dewi - as you played behind Back and Winterbottom, you clearly know what you are talking about! That is the best balanced and articulated analysis of our No 7 problem, and how it impacts on the whole side, that I have seen for some time, amidst all the flotsam of the rugby media. I really get fed up with all the so called armchair experts, many of which, have never played the game, saying it is not that important, you just need experience.
