Hearing aid

The RFU report that England coach Brian Ashton has sent the England Deaf rugby team a good luck message ahead of their international against Wales on Sunday.

"I'm told that all involved with the England Deaf team, and the team themselves have put a great deal of effort into preparing for these games and I just hope that you will reap what you have sown," Ashton said. "Enjoy and make your country proud!"

Unfortunately, however, the England Deaf team's pleas for Ashton not to pick Ian Balshaw for England's match against Wales at Twickenham on Saturday fell on deaf ears.
