Good news for Johnno

23 12 2009

Good news was also forthcoming last weekend (although I have only just noticed it!) that Delon Armitage, England’s star full-back from 2008 has made his full come back after injury. Apparently he played 13 minutes at the end of London Irish’s game and scored the final try to boot.

Team England is in an extraordinary mess at the moment and news that gradually their injured players are returning is welcome. With Armitage slotted in at 15, Monye and Cueto on the wings the back 3 suddenly has a much more solid look about it. When Flutey returns and with Flood offering further options at 10, I am suddenly more optimistic about the look of the team for the 6 Nations.

Wouldn’t mind a new coach however – I’ll always love Johnno for what he achieved in 2003 but as a coach? I’d rather have someone with a track record. My vote currently would go to Jim Mallinder of the Saints as his teams play the attacking brand or rugby I like.
