Currently surplus to Johnno’s requirements are:
JOE WORSLEY – frankly a shock that old Melon-Head made the initial 45 man squad. Piano skills not enough to save him.
THOMAS WALDROM – surprised that the Tank Engine has returned to the depot so soon. Decision will no doubt pacify some of the Little England brigade.
GEORGE CHUTER – always going to be a tight call with Lee Mears. Leicester connection and beard-growing ability obviously not enough.
JAMES SIMPSON-DANIEL – sadly destined never to be a force at international level.
DAVID STRETTLE – no longer looks like he was separated at birth from the Mayor of London. Nevertheless, has lost out to the mostly over-rated Ugo Monye and the largely unknown Charlie Sharples (possible surprise late RWC bolter).
