Waltzing mosquito

England's Rugby World Cup preparations have been laid low with the news that man-mountain loosehead prop Andrew Sheridan has been hospitalised by an infected mosquito bite.

So, having laid waste to the Welsh scrummage two weeks ago and having given the French front row plenty to think about at Twickenham last week, Sheridan has effectively been out-scrummaged by an insect.

The mosquito in question has been in training throughout the summer and is peaking at exactly the right time for next month's tournament. There is no truth to the rumour that Wallabies coach John Connolly was seen in Bath yesterday afternoon, making enquiries as to whether the mosquito had an Australian grandfather.
