Happy Retirement Mr Flatman
Not only was Flatman a fine loosehead and, in this blog’s humble opinion, worthy of far more than the 8 caps he collected for England, over the last few years he has also written a thoroughly witty and eloquent column for the Independent.
His latest offering – dealing with his retirement – is nothing short of a masterpiece. I urge you to read it – it sums up our sport quite wonderfully and is an article I really wish I could have written.
I truly hope that Flats continues to regale us with his insight and humour in the years to come and if there’s ever a book then I’ll be first in the queue.
