Rich Church-Keen picks England’s RWC squad

Rich Church-Keen picks England’s RWC squad

So the fabulous 50 have been selected, the England pre-RWC training squad is in place, writes Bloggers’ Bench member Rich Church-Keen.

Rumours of Croft, Simpson and Foden being given a chance in the pre-tournament friendlies to prove their fitness and jump into the final selection aside, these are the guys who World Cup glories rests on their shoulders… But who will make the final 30? Here’s my take!


Dave Attwood (Bath) Chance of going (out of 10) – 7. Disappointing latter half of the season, seemed to struggle in 6 Nations. Tough competition at lock. Should make the squad, but as back up.
Kieran Brookes (Newcastle Falcons) Chance of going (out of 10) – 6. Had a great season with Falcons, topped with a move to Saints for next season, may struggle to get a place with the big names back fit in the front row. Outside bet, but a chance nonetheless!
