Rugby upset

What on earth happened on Saturday at rugby HQ? In one of the great turnarounds in international sport, England contrived to throw away a healthy lead to a Wales side that showed little sign of competing for the match.

And Johnny Wilkinson, Mr Dependable, threw one of the worst passes in history to put England in deep do-do, just when leathering the ball into Row Z was what was called for.

Not to take anything away from Wales’ second-half performance. They took their chances – even if each one was laboriously served up to them by the headless chickens in skin-tight white Lycra.

Owen Wilson – aka Dave Strettle – didn’t last the match, by the way. And Lesley The Volcano Vainikolo looked about as dangerous as porridge.

Back to the drawing board, fellas.
