England have picked an exciting bunch of players for their upcoming Six Nations campaign.
I just hope that people bear in mind that it takes a little bit of time for guys to find their feet when they enter international rugby.
Don’t expect miracles overnight.
You have a clean slate and a lot of young players who all want to prove themselves on the biggest stage.
That extra enthusiasm is great as long as it can be controlled.
There will be no fear in that group but there is not as many experienced heads to guide them around the park as there has been in recent years.
I have full faith in Charlie.
He has bags of experience and he will be a cracking player to have next to Ben Youngs at scrum-half.
Charlie has played in a lot of big games and knows what is required on the international scene.
He will be ideal person to channel that youthful exuberance in the backs outside him and get them playing in a pragmatic way.
Being pragmatic in the first 20 minutes against Scotland will be crucial. If England fling it around all over the place, they could open themselves up to a very organised and physical Scottish side.
But if Owen Farrell plays outside of Charlie at inside centre and they play a very Saracens-like game plan, it will be just what England need early on to settle things down.
Sarries don’t play a huge amount of expansive rugby and if outside centre Brad Barritt is the third member of their side in England’s backs, they will know each other’s game inside out.
