Since I was a boy I have taken huge comfort, in an ever-changing world, in things that remain constant. One of these things was the colour of the English rugby socks. Black and white; no one knows why, but it worked It has caused me considerable grief that the RWC 07 socks are red and white. It is amazing that a decision of this magnitude could be made without a national referendum at the least. The leadership of the RFU must be sacked.
