Absolutely. I'm not sure which Premiership game it was, but I saw Cole play for Leicester and he was fantastic, incredibly mobile and combative. It's brilliant to see strength in depth. Young Wilson is a hot prospect as well.

Cole's a good example of how young talent should be managed: playing games in lower divisions and learning the game, rather than festering in an academy gym and not getting game-time. Well done Tigers.

Did anyone see Joe Marler play for the Under 20's against Wales ? He looked like a terrific prospect on TV and a bit of a beast .
Whats the word on the street about his technical play as his loose play looked outstanding .
He could be the new Jason Leonard ?

Good to see that we now appear to have some strength in depth regarding props;with Cole ,Mullan ,Marler ,Golding all starting to make their mark

Cole is the best prop prospect we have.

Extremely solid at such a young age.

His performances in the last few months have been superb.

Wilson will now have to settle for being England's best prop who can play both sides, and thus will be our bench reserve,

However, Stevens will be back next year refreshed.

Cole is a very good prospect.

Very big, mobile and solid scrummager, England should nuture him in the same way New Zealand did Carl Hayman... Now the best prop in the world.

Wilson for me is a good prop and won't let you down, similar to White... but we need them to take that extra step.

Excellent to see MJ giving the guy a chance.
