More than six weeks after St Boshington’s School for Oversized Louts lost their last cup match, their report cards have finally arrived at parental homes. If the English rugby public are not disgruntled by this stage, they’re a long, long way from gruntled.

Bar Graham Rowntree – “He was fantastic. Everyone likes and respects him and he had empathy with the players” – and Tom Wood – “… Woody [was] playing awesomely in training and in the Six Nations … Robshaw and Wood proved themselves to be the fittest, the strongest and played out of their skin in training, but then they were overlooked for senior players …” – everybody gets it in the neck.
