Handsome? I think he looks worried!

But, I know you look at our Jonno thru rose tinted glasses!

So, is today officially the first day since Rugby Union went Professional that there has been harmony in the English setup? :smt002

I reckon there might be 8 tigers in it.
Croft, Varndell,Kay,Crane, Moody,Ellis, Flood, Hipkiss.
With the possibility of Blaze,Chuter and Erinle in the saxons

i reckon kay wont make it. nor varndell
crane is probably on the border between senior and saxons.
chuter will either be in the senior squad or not at all.
There is no point having him at the saxons a this stage in his career.

I don't like to see the likes of Kay and Worsley in the Saxons Team. They are getting on in years, everyone nkows what they can do, why send them off on A team duty? I know the Saxons squad needs experience, and I know that it isn't a youth squad, it's for fringe players. But that still doesn't make any sense (to me) to include these World cup winners.


Congratulations to all who made the squad. Especially Crane and Varndell.

Like it. Think he's made some pretty astute choices for both squads. Glad to see Crane and Blaze getting in, we could do with some surly beggars in the pack.
