A few short messages aimed @ some of the weekend's participants:
@ Steve Borthwick - please engage brain before speaking. The performance wasn't as bad as some are making out but "FANTASTIC" it certainly wasn't.
@ Martin Johnson - with 3 front row forwards on the bench you let Italy set the agenda. The game was crying out for Ben Foden. Please trust in talent.
@ the RFU - clearly the only solution is to wear the retro shirts on a permanent basis. You know it makes sense.
@ France - sacre bleu. Bloody impressive mes amis.
@ Jerry Flannery - very, very lucky to stay on the parc. Collective myopia from match officials. Expect to miss at least the next match though.
@ Scotland - WTF? The most astonishing piece of mass hara-kiri ever witnessed on a rugby field?
@ Thom Evans - get well soon - ditto Chris Paterson.
@ Lee Byrne - I seriously hope that it WASN'T a dive.
@ Andy Powell - charged with drink driving in a golf buggy? MUPPET.
