The loss of three senior players will strengthen Eddie Jones to make some difficult strategic decisions in the February 5 showdown against Scotland. The confirmation of Courtney Lawes as captain seems almost certain. When the rugby league roster update finally arrived on Monday night, it was more dramatic than expected.

Everyone expected the departure of Owen Farrell and the in-form rest George Ford was ready to be drafted.

Then the email dropped and further headaches became apparent. Coupled with Farrell’s absence, Jonny May will be out with a knee injury and Lawes is unable to train yet. Together, the trio played 264 friendlies for England, Great Britain and the Irish Lions.

Eddie Jones is in the advantaged position of visiting Ford and Elliot Daly, but there are still more puzzles to solve before reaching Murray Field on February 5.

May’s place on the left-wing was a constant among England’s back three last falls as the deck shuffled around him. Against Tonga, Freddie Steward played at fullback with Adam Radwan on the right-wing.

In the win over the Wallabies, Courtney Lawes and Henry Slade was demoted to fullback, while Steward took on a bigger role when Manu Tuilagi wore the number 14. Then, for South Africa’s visit to Twickenham, Joe Marchant started with May and the Steward before Max Malins arrived.

May looked for offensive attacks all over the field and amassed 35 attempts in 69 blocks. Only Rory Underwood can do it better. But the Gloucesterians are also influential leaders in England’s playing strategy. And he works very hard.

His energy helped set the tone in an early encounter with the Springboks two months ago. That contribution has become typical of the 31-year-old in recent years. Although he didn’t catch Marcus Smith all the way up and down, May threw himself into the bounce and released Ben Youngs off the floor.

Make up for May’s location-awareness

As trivial as this may seem, it indirectly led to Tuilagi’s attempt. Smith then found space behind South Africa, whose back three were dragged out of position and Marchant regained a diagonal kick. Youngs’ grubber, chased by Steward and May, won the 5m scrimmage for England.

When Malins was outflanked and Steward had to push himself, he galloped all over the field to screen for his last three colleagues. May flooded Willie Le Roux’s chip and conceded a penetrating penalty, but his off-the-ball tracking was the perfect example of pendulum defence.

Jones still has a Steward and the return of Jack Norwell is good news. Remember Marchant is the one sitting on the right, and it grows all the time. His dissection work was excellent for Harlequins. To the Saracens, Malins also seems more tenacious and street-wise when it comes to kicking exchanges. Unless Daly is seen as a flank again, the other candidates are inexperienced.

Finn Russell explores the location of the best wings on Earth. Murrayfield would be a baptism of fire for Tommy Freeman or Ollie Hassell-Collins. May suffered some falter in the win over the Springboks but left a big gap. is the best website for all sports and England Six Nations TicketsThe Rugby fans can buy Italy Vs England Tickets from our website at exclusively discountable prices.
