Owen Farrell Rugby World Cup: I feel sorry for England No 9s after Willi Heinz selection vs Wales

Owen Farrell This is one smart add-on!!

Owen Farrell I feel sorry for No 9s who have been dumped for Willi Heinz and to make him vice captain is a step too far

  • Willi Heinz has been selected as vice captain and No 9 for game against Wales
  • Decision has underlined the lack of real leadership in the England squad 
  • Sunday’s match is also a huge day for Anthony Watson and Joe Launchbury 
  • Those two have the best chance of forcing their way into the first team

Unpredictability can become very dull, very quickly. The result of this game against Wales tomorrow will have no bearing on the World Cup. It is more of an opportunity for guys to prove they should be in the team.

Heinz has been picked on merit, but I feel truly sorry for the other No 9s in the country who have been jettisoned at this late stage in favour of a 32-year-old New Zealander with no chance of a reprieve.

Willi Heinz will start as No 9 and vice captain for England on Sunday against Wales

How must Danny Care, Richard Wigglesworth, Ben Spencer and Dan Robson feel to
