So, what happens next?

It appears that Martin Johnson’s future as England’s manager will be decided by the RFU Management Board based on the recommendation by Rob Andrew who, it appears, now has a new job as the RFU’s professional rugby director.

Firstly, I wouldn’t necessarily assume that Johnno will decide to put himself through the wringer again. I’m sure he’s no quitter, but after the events of the last 5-6 weeks I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he decided that enough was enough.

Secondly, the decision will made by the RFU Management Board, a body utterly discredited by the Blackett Report earlier this year and several of whom are under investigation relating to possible misconduct charges.

Farcical doesn’t even begin to describe it.
