Once Eddie O’Sullivan had finished crying after his teams abject display against the Scots, he decided to name his Rugby World Cup squad. Unsurprisingly, a lot of the players from Saturday’s cowpat of a second team did not make it.
Yoda Ashton has announced his Rugby World Cup squad slightly ahead of schedule, perhaps because he fancies watching Transformers at the cinema tomorrow or something. Either way, the players that will be going back to their clubs instead of going to France are: Nick Abendanon, Danny Cipriani , Toby Flood, James Haskell, Charlie Hodgson, Tom Palmer, Mike Tindall, Kevin Yates.
Good news for the referee! Lewis Moody has been forced out the match today at Twickenham with a calf strain, therefore the man in the middle will save himself about 28 blasts on his whistle due to not having to ping him for being offside.
France coach Bernard Laporte has come out today to say that his comments about England and Southern Hemisphere drug testing have been taken out of context. What an enormous surprise.
In anticipation of the much more testing matches to come this weekend, lets review last weekend’s
