Poor Jonny… Poor English Fans!

24 05 2010

Sad news emerged yesterday from a thrilling Amlin Challenge Cup final in which Cardiff Blues beat Jonny Wilkinson’s Toulon team. Jonny himself had to leave the pitch injured; in a scene reminiscent of his rugby career between 2003 and late 2009.

In days gone by this would have inspired terror in the average England fan at the prospect of England facing a southern hemisphere team without their talisman. The glory days of Jonny’s career appear to have passed somewhat and so now ,whilst the terror is still there, it has subtly changed.

What this means is that the man pictured below (shown in typical international mode – ie. going backwards) is now likely to play some part on the Summer tour which kicks off over the next couple of weeks.

Scary or what?! We still have nightmares at Hodgson’s missed tackle on Ma’a Nonu in New Zealand, 2008.
