Great to see that Hull Ionians Joe Makin has been selected to Captain the England Counties v CSM Bucharest in today's opening match. A real honour.
Hull Ionians Lewis Minikin is also on the bench as is Jamie Broadley of Sheff Tigers. A really good show from the Yorkshire lads.

The counties touring side is normally picked from those who play county rugby

Yep know that
As an example the Cornwall and Somerset sides have been heavily populated by Redruth and Taunton players.
And by the way Cornwall play in the top competition.
And while on the subject no Worthing players again. Several have featured for their respective counties this year.

The Redruth fans keep telling us their players cannot take a Friday afternoon off - so perhaps they could not get two weeks off for a summer jolly.

There were no Redruth players in the Cornwall team that played Herts. Not sure if any had played in the previous two games.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe,
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion,
I've watched C beams glitter in the darkness near the Tennhauser Gate,

Have I missed something? Why all the fuss about an England Counties squad that doesn't include any Redruth or Taunton players?
There are many other clubs with no representatives.

Have to agree - one would expect the majority of the Counties side to come from Nat 1 - the sides mentioned didn't even finish in the top 3 of N2S.

Were the players available? There is no payment for playing for EC so unless you can take holiday from work or are in a position to lose 2 weeks wages it’s not always possible to take up the offer of a place on the tour regardless of the team you play for

Why is the EC pick in January and players are told play 1 game for your county and your in. Its bullsxxt it makes no decision what county you play for or how many times you have played its all about the clubs. Need to changed it to nat1 and 2 select and forget about the counties. Any players from the 3rd division of county rugby?

Wrongly informed. Squad isn't selected until after the 2nd round of county matches. Over 80 players are asked if they would be available as pretty tough just to phone up 10 days before departure and say can you take 2 wk's off work? Over 20 new caps in squad with 11 counties represented. Before idiots make post learn the facts and actually ask anyone who has played for Counties what it meant to them!!!!
