Ugh this is gonna be hell here. Someone beat the All Blacks. PLEASE!!! I don't care who.
England have someting like 35 injuries in a squad of 36 or something ridiculous like that. We'll probably get roundly thrashed in each match.

Let's hope the jet lag gets to the All Blacks or they're a bit tired from the Air New Zealand cup, which my new county, Waikato, won you know Whistle

I've heard of 15 of them, but we are still screwed. Looks a pretty weak team.

Suprised by a few of them you haven't heard of Laura. You've actually put "WHO?" by a couple of the big names and World Cup winners in the squad. Just to answer a few of them that I can answer from the top of my head:

Iain Balshaw - speedy fullback/winger, World Cup winner and integral part of the side a couple of years before the world cup before being overtaken by Josh Lewsey for the World Cup side. Played a part in the World Cup although more of a substitutes role than he would have liked. Went on the 2001 Lions tour to Australia after being one of the stars of the 6 nations and played a part in the test series off the bench. Will probably be starting the 1st test this autumn.

Andy Sheridan - prop, monster, single handedly destroyed Australia in an international last year which we amazingly won, taking their front row out of the game and putting a couple of them in hospital. Absolute giant, came here on the Lions tour last year but didn't play a test. Should've started all 3 mind, screwed by Woodward. Certain starter.

Ben Kay - the one I'm a bit suprised to see a 'Who' beside. Martin Johnson's 1st choice lock partner during the World Cup, and in fact in charge of the lineout calls for the WC too, and integral part of the side for a number of years now. Came here on Lions tour last year and started the 1st test. Certain starter.

Pat Sanderson - Former sevens player and part of England's 2002 Commenwealth games team, played in the autumn tests last year. England captain for recent North America tour and favourite, alongside Martin Corry to captain this side. Not involved in the World Cup. Certain starter.

Andy Goode - Don't know a lot about him but know he is Leicester's fly half and replaced Charlie Hodgson when injured in the 6 nations. Will only get bench roles this autumn.
This quote from his wikipedia page doesn't sound too encouraging:
"Goode has recently been cited as the worst kicker in the history of the game, but he does lack pace." lol

Anyway, hope some of that helps. They are just a few I know a little about off the top of my head.

And yes, we do suck. Pretty weak looking side.

Meanwhile the scottish squad looks quite good.

Backs – Mike Blair (Edinburgh Rugby), Chris Cusiter (Border Reivers), Rob Dewey (Edinburgh Rugby), Marcus Di Rollo (Edinburgh Rugby), Phil Godman (Edinburgh Rugby), Andrew Henderson (Glasgow Warriors), Rory Lamont (Glasgow Warriors), Sean Lamont (Northampton Saints), Ben MacDougall (Border Reivers), Calum MacRae (Border Reivers), Graeme Morrison (Glasgow Warriors), Dan Parks (Glasgow Warriors), Chris Paterson (Edinburgh Rugby), Hugo Southwell (Edinburgh Rugby), Simon Webster (Edinburgh Rugby)

Forwards – John Beattie (Glasgow Warriors), Kelly Brown (Border Reivers), David Callam (Edinburgh Rugby), Ross Ford (Border Reivers) Scott Gray (Border Reivers), Dougie Hall (Edinburgh Rugby), Jim Hamilton (Leicester Tigers), Nathan Hines (Perpignan), Allister Hogg (Edinburgh Rugby), Allan Jacobsen (Edinburgh Rugby), Alastair Kellock (Glasgow Warriors), Gavin Kerr (Border Reivers), Euan Murray (Glasgow Warriors), Scott Murray (Edinburgh Rugby), Craig Smith (Edinburgh Rugby), Simon Taylor (Edinburgh Rugby), Jason White (Sale Sharks) CAPTAIN

Those in bold are the first 17 players i would definately put in the main squad.
and finally. JAMES HAMILTON (aka Jim) 6ft 9 in!! 20 stone!!! 19 year's old! Finally a big forward! Hope he gets on the team!

Thank you, that does help!! Honestly, I've only heard of Ben Kay. And possibly Andy Goode.

I've heard of most of the Scottish team though. And to be fair, I don't follow English rugby Wink

Also, I'm fairly excited about Wales' future prospects because a guy I went to school with (was in my class in Primary school and then in classes with me for High School) is playing for Wales U18s and now U19s dance
