    Northern Hemisphere is a funny, fluid and ever changing game (unless your name is Andrew Sheridan or Brian O'Driscoll of course) and nothing more demonstrates this than the current spate of suddn or unexpected injuries afflicting England, Scotland & Wales so far.

    Scotland kicked off proceedings after stating that after an anxious wait prop Euan Murray would be unable to take part for the opening game against Wales. Geoff Cross has been selected to take his place.
    England have suffered a sudden turn of the ankle for scrum-half favourite Danny Care resulting in the call up of Harry Ellis and then a last minute injury to center Mike Tindall. It has now been confirmed that Jamie Noon will take Tindalls place.

    Meanwhile, Wales have had to back track on their assurances that talisman center Gavin Henson will start against Scotland and this is the second time they have had to do this in a matter of months. In fact, he is a doubt for the all important game against England as well.
