Actually that puts me in mind of the first Lions test in Christchurch in 2005.

Or, strictly speaking, Wig’s comments afterwards about what he though1 of our last line-out nerd’s redesign of the Lions’ line-out after the ‘management’ (I use the word advisedly) were conned by the Kiwi’s into thinking that their original calls had been cracked by the AB management. Wig said that they sent Ben Kay away to completely revamp the calls. Ben almost rubbed his hands with glee and went away to dream up the most complicated set of calls any of them had ever seen. Mostly the props just threw them away – apparently! The rest, as they say, is history.

Geoff is the same age as the Tank then…

Good luck to Geoff - he deserves his chance. I think he could be very good for England.
