Stuart Lancaster on Radio Red Top tonight.

And taking questions.



...
In my little town
I never meant nothin'
I was just my fathers son
Saving my money
Dreaming of glory
Twitching like a finger
On the trigger of a gun
Leaving nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town

Never heard 5Live called that before! I've always thought Talksport was more of that ilk.

Didn't listen, but he cited Croft's try vs France and Youngs's try vs Ireland as two of his three favourite England moments thus far, seemingly (third being Twickenham support).

I must admit that I too, perhaps erroneously, thought that RRR referred to Talksport.

Radio Red Top: obsessed with soccer and celebrity; most of its programming made up of ranting members of the public; trivialised news and lightweight, unpenetrative, sycophantic vanity interviewing.


And typically tonight - Lancaster given a spectacularly easy ride.

What sort of a ride were they meant to give him? The program was advertised as the public's chance to ask him questions, not as a post-tournament debrief.

Could have phoned up up and told him he was rubbish, or asked him some searching questions on England's attacking play. 5Live would have loved some conflict so if there was none then most likely people didn't phone up to grill him.

Saw a clip of him on TV this morning on the subject of Wayne Smith joining his coaching team.

He muttered his usual management speak but in effect said that the loss of Andy Farrell's services wasn't that significant as he (Lanacaster) set the attacking style and policy (hands up if you knew there was one!)and Farrell just did the detail work. Which was presumably telling his son to kick the ball away at every opportunity.

They had an attacking style.must have missed it.

So Wayne Smith will get overall directions as to the attacking style and told to deliver the details. He will then put his head in his hands and weep.

I would have rung had I had time. I have before. As it was I sent a text - which they didn't read out. Mind you it wasn't as gushingly positive as those they did read.

And the interviewer doesn't have to conduct a debrief - but a few questions about the poverty of attacking play rather than eulogising the great wins in Edinburgh and Rome might have been more insightful.
