RWC - just around the corner ...

My Rugby World Cup tickets having now arrived - Japan v Samoa at Milton Keynes (woohoo!) and QF 1 at Twickenham - the tournament is now finally beginning to seem real after a seemingly interminable build up.

From an England perspective the main talking point has been the selection of Sam Burgess. It's a strange one - there's no way Burgess is one of the top four centres in England - and neither is he in the top half dozen back row players. But - and it's a significant but - he is a potential match winner, and England don't have too many of those.

I think we're now allowed to begin to get excited...
