Just heard that former England skipper and coach Martin Johnson has received a 49 day ban for speeding on the M5. Not known as a speedster in his playing days, Johnno was apparently clocked at 103 mph.
The ban beats Johnno's previous record - a 35 day ban for stamping, dropping a knee onto a prone player and punching Julian White, all in the same match against Saracens in December 2000. An impressive afternoon's work by anyone's standards.
In covering Johnno's driving ban the Daily Fail helpfully reports that he earns £60k a year and lives in a £500k house. Which is nice.
