Tait and smile (sorry)

With apologies for the headline, it's great to see Mathew Tait back playing again.

Tait completed 80 minutes at fullback for Leicester against the Maori earlier this week – his first full 80 minutes since October 2011.

Although not particularly fashionable in this age of bish, bash, bosh centre play, I’ve always been a big fan of Tait’s almost Guscott-like ability to beat a man on the outside with no more than a swivel of the hips.

A particularly horrendous run of injuries has sadly seen Tait disappear entirely from the international radar but the bloke is still only 26 (believe it or not) and is overdue a bit of luck. Who knows, an injury-free period might even see him knocking on the England door again come 2015?
