First topic message reminder :

Not sure if theres already a thread kicking about but seeing as the prem is back I thought it may be nice to argue over the numerous players impressing.

As ever it seems to be scrum half, flankers, centre and full back are where there are chances for people to force their way in. Can't say I've ever been able to call what Eddie Jones thinks but Willis and hill must be tempting him to widen the player pool. A number of scrum halfs have started well also but has the time come for Spencer or Robson? Thought Maunder was very good too and Mitchell showed great flashes.

I'm at a bit of a loss for full back based on the games last week. Furbank looked anonymous and let's face it Daly is a Jones favourite.

He was dreadful vs Italy bar the support line and break. Directly involved in 2 tries vs slow play, bad kicking and bad passing. I have to admit I'm just fed up of him now. We have better options.

It used to be anyone getting a motm was automatically on the shortlist, not sure if it's still the same. Ridiculous though isnt it. I wonder of he'll get more votes than Dupont.

There's only 6 nominees.

He wont win the thing of course, and maybe theres an element of not many players playing all their teams games and an overweighting of the two tries. But it does suggest there's quite a disconnect between what a vocal part of the internet thinks and what the expert panel (and Eddie Jones) thinks.

At least he didnt get his nose broken.
