Farrell / Must Be Dropped / Part 2

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

From Curry’s sending off in the third minute of England’s RWC opener on Saturday, England were backs to the wall.  And how George Ford responded! – 27 points from his boot, and a masterpiece of strategic adaptation and game management (which he’d been doing for Leicester all season before his nasty injury in the 2022 Premiership final[1]: so, no surprises whatever).

The suspended Owen Farrell could no more have pulled off that essential performance than fly over the moon: all he’d have come up with would have been blood-and-guts, huff-and-puff, & probably another card.    And England would effectively have been out before the tournament had even really got going.  His red card and still-current suspension during the warm-up series was as felicitous for England as that.  

And there is no obvious vacancy at 12.

This is the RWC; this is serious.  So, back to where we were four weeks agoFarrell Must be Dropped.[2]  



[1] Haven’t seen this mentioned, but nearly half England’s starting 15 (and some of the Argentinians!) have played with Ford at Leicester at one time or another.

[2] Actually, for a little more creativity: when his suspension is lifted, Farrell could be put on the bench against the contingency some opposing eejit decides the solution to Ford’s dominance is to drop him with a forearm to the head.  Then the bonehead can take over against the remaining 14 men.  Smith can also be on the bench as a general-purpose option: people already like the thought of him at 15, and he could probably do 9 as well as 10.
