Quality Street

I must say that Gary Street's recent decision to step down as head coach of the England Women's team was a bit of a surprise.

Having last year led England to a first World Cup title since 1994, it seems odd that Street would call it quits a couple of weeks before the Six Nations, especially given that he'd previously talked of trying to retain the world title in 2017.

If Street did just decide that he'd served his time and that it was time to go then fair enough - and I'm sure he leaves with the eternal gratitude of all fans of the women's game in England.

According to the RFU, however, the decision was mutual. Perhaps it's just me, but doesn't that just smell a little?
