Most professional players wants to play at the highest level they possibly can. If your club coach (who is also in the national set up) and the coach of the national team thinks you are capable, you are not going to turn round and say 'no thanks, I'm not ready'.

The only thought I had was if there was any pressure from higher up in the RFU to have him in the squad regardless.

He also does make the valid point that England were beating Wales when he was subbed off, so I'm not sure why anything that happened in 2015 can be attributed to him

Correct re substitution. I often think subs are made to get everyone on the field to the detriment of the team performance.

He is an easy target for the bigoted people who consider RL as an inferior game.

That was part of his point...that the substitution was made to keep Mike & George happy. I'm not 100% sure whether that's true or not, but coaches s doto feel they have to make these changes regardless of the flow of the game and if it makes sense or not
