Super Clive to the Rescue

24 03 2010

Hallelujah! Some rugby god somewhere is apparently in the process of solving English rugby problems detailed in the article ‘Rob Andrew’s Madness’.

The Times has led its rugby news today with a piece entitled “Woodward lined up as Andrew’s replacement”, in which the following can be found.

‘Speculation is mounting that Rob Andrew’s future as the Rugby Football Union’s director of elite rugby is on the line — and that Sir Clive Woodward could be sounded out as a possible replacement.

After another disappointing RBS Six Nations Championship campaign, Andrew’s position is under intense scrutiny. One source told The Times last night that in the aftermath of Francis Baron’s decision to step down as chief executive: “I understand Andrew is next on the list.” ‘

If this were to happen, the Compulsive Hooker would be willing to suspend our campaign to have Martin Johnson replaced by an experienced coach, as the Woodward-Johnson partnership has worked before and it is possible it could work again. With Woodward’s experienced hand guiding Johnson, perhaps we could see a genuine England improvement.

Alternatively Woodward arriving could see a swift exit for Johnson as Woodward seeks to imprint his image on the set up. Either way we can’t see how his arrival can be any worse for England!

So Clive, only one tiny request – come to our rescue, save England and help restore all of our faith.
