Big Ben not for Sale
It's fair to say that I've never been Cohen's biggest fan - an admittedly irrational dislike probably based on nothing more concrete than his penchant for posing in his underwear at every opportunity.
To be fair to him, his purple patch in 2002-2003 did coincide with (and, I reluctantly concede, contribute to) England's march to the World Cup. I also can't argue with the stats that show Cohen to be England's joint second highest try-scorer (even if the majority of his 31 international tries involved, as I perhaps somewhat harshly recall, little more than him flopping over the line after the good work of others).
"Sale don't want me anymore because they're trying to spend more money in the pack," blubs Cohen. "I've got another couple of years left in me so I'll try to get a club in the Premiership. If not, I'll retire."
