As big a fan as I am of Ben Foden as a player, I was mightily unimpressed by news of the England fullback's arrest on suspicion of criminal damage following an alleged altercation with a taxi driver in central London at 3.30 on Monday morning.

Very Dennis Wise, and hardly what is expected of an international rugby player.

The RFU's current stance is that it is “a matter for the player and his club at the current time” although I sincerely hope it is not left like that.

The RFU quite rightly threw the book at Delon Armitage for his behaviour recently and, if the allegations against Foden have any substance, there’s little doubt he should face disciplinary sanctions.

Perhaps a good slap from Martin Johnson would knock a bit of sense into him.

I think a good slap from Martin Johnson would knock sense into anyone

Would probably knock the sense in, then out, then in, then out...
