Onwards

With the RFU and Nike suitably and deservedly mortified by the leaked video depicting the England team as Grand Slam winners, perhaps plans for the celebratory t-shirts do not necessarily have to be shelved given the successful Grand Slam campaigns for the Under 20 squad and, of course, the England Women's squad.

For England's Women it was a sixth consecutive Six Nations title and a fifth Grand Slam in six years, which is some achievement.

Mention should also be made of the contribution of former captain Catherine Spencer, who announced her retirement from international and domestic rugby this week. Spencer racked up 63 international caps, scored 18 tries and led her country to four Six Nations titles and to the 2010 Rugby World Cup Final. And, remember, all this as an amateur.

Happy retirement!

Thank you Total Flanker - wonderful to see her get the recognition she deserves - fortunately I understand her rugby knowledge and experience are not going to waste as she is the WRDM for the South West and will pass it on into the girls game down here
