Rugby

England's former coach has some advice for the team.
England must make wholesale changes for Saturday's Six Nations clash with Ireland, says former coach Dick Best.

You're not kidding. I favour replacing the entire team with thirteen blocks of English oak, a five-year-old hermaphrodite with learning difficulties, and a rabid baboon from Gibraltar (don't worry: his grandmother was English). They could hardly do a worse job.
Defeats to Scotland and France have left England coach Andy Robinson with a tough task on Tuesday when he selects the team to face Ireland at Twickenham.

Yeah, the tough task is whether he just concedes to Ireland today and spare us all the pain of watching the English squad "playing rugby" again.

Alternatively, I hear that the East Croyden Under 15s are free this weekend...
