Would you Adam and Eve it?
It was, of course, the obvious choice to make, an absolute no-brainer, the only sensible course of action to take. No one should, however, underestimate the capacity of the RFU for making an utter horlicks of all manner of things and, to give the incompetent and not-fit-for-purpose governing body its due, it did its absolute best to cock everything up.
So, despite the fact that any other decision would have been sheer lunacy, today's announcement still came as something of a shock as common sense, for once, prevailed.
Still, fair's fair - it matters not a jot how the RFU reached its decision. The fact is that it got there in the end and we have the right man in place.
Good luck to the good ship Lancaster and to all who sail with him. One thing's for sure - it won't be easy.
