I think I'm hallucinating.
England coach Martin Johnson has just named his team to face France in this weekend's Six Nations' finale.
The unbelieveable highlights are:
Ben Foden is named at fullback.
Chris Ashton replaces Ugo "I can only run in a straight line" Monye on the left wing.
Super Jonny Wilkinson has been dropped and is replaced by Toby Flood.
Jimmy Haskell, aka Mr Invisible, has been relegated to the bench.
The changes might be too little, too late in the tournament, but at least Johnson is FINALLY opening his eyes and picking the players who are actually performing.
Is this a step towards a more dynamic England team?
Maybe. A big disappointment is that Courtney Lawes has been sent back to Northampton. 58-year old Simon Shaw starts at lock and the ever
I suppose Johnson has to dig his stubborn little heels in somewhere...
Still, I'm off for a little lie down to recover from this shocking news.
