England Rugby - November 2009 In Review!  

England Rugby November 2009 - In Review

England Rugby November in Review.  England are struggling on the world stage of rugby, things have to change if we are to get back to winning ways again.  Many say we need new coaches, other say Martin Johnson has no coaching ability and should never have been appointed.  The debate goes on and on.  The players will have been instructed to play to a plan but there is nobody on the field to change the plan when it is not working or maybe there is?  In my humble opinion Lewis Moody is miles ahead of the rest as a leader and motivator.   

Come on Martin give Moody the Captaincy and let us all move forward at a pace in 2010! 

And now for a GONG! .
