Still Steve Borthwick.
Borthers looking quite dynamic for a change
So let me get this straight. Based on form alone, Borthers would probably only make it onto the England bench behind the masterful Simon Shaw and his apprentice Courtney Lawes. Hmm. Call me old fashioned, but surely the captain should be a man who would make the starting fifteen? Shouldn't the captain's name be the first on the team sheet, as it was in the days of Johnson himself?
Oh well. Consistency is a good thing I suppose. Well, if you want England to be consistently shit that is. I know that a captain's performance doesn't make or break the entire team, but it's a pretty good place to start. Maybe being conservative really is the new black...
All this does make me wonder if we will be be treated to more of the same ineffective rugby from England in the Six Nations. Hopefully not. I mean, a flying pig might land on MJ's head during the England v Wales game, and in his concussed state he might choose a better captain for the rest of the tournament. Like Moody or Hartley for example. I doubt it will happen though...
