“Drop Farrell” – Mike Brown tells Eddie Jones the three England changes he must make

Powerhouse Manu Tuilagi is wasted out wide and there is no need for England to play him there, according to former international fullback Mike Brown.

#1. Max Malins for Owen Farrell

Brown said: “Manu is wasted on the wing. England have so many good wingers that you don’t need to push people out of position.

“Does Slade have a future out wide? No. So if you want Owen Farrell in the team — which, let’s be honest, Eddie does — you’ve got to drop Manu or Slade.

“Personally I would go Smith-Manu-Slade as my 10-12-13, as I think they have the full package as a trio that can get the gainline, kick, pass and run. I’d love to see what those three can do together given a chance.”
