PHIL VICKERYS ENGLAND WORLD CUP SQUAD THOUGHTS

Great squad but not too many surprises and the excitement will come when it has to be cut to 31.  I like what Lancaster is doing and that squad pretty much ticks all the boxes with a mix of core England players and form Premiership guys such as Daly, Ashton, Calum Clark and young sensation Itoje.  The hard work and challenge will now be to start getting that squad down from 50 as that size is difficult to train and meld into a group.  Lancaster and the coaches need to hone and craft making tough decisions through the summer to make sure they have the right 31 come the start of the World Cup.  It is however for the guys who don't make it still a brilliant opportunity to make a mark and be in the frame for post cup.
