While this does cover dive-ball and cricket to an extent, most of the vitriol is reserved for Rugby. Specifically why the RFU dosen't include non executive directors on its board (a thinly held snipe at why there arn't any Club representatives on the RFU board perhaps?), has an amateur and temporary working structure, why English rugby is providing a poor working environment for it's elite players by not having central contracts, and why England don't quite know how they won the World Cup in the first place!

Very interesting article. Makes a good point of saying that the buck should stop with Francais Baron.
