Since when was Coventry situated in Ireland? :bleh!: Because that was where he was born. If anything, the South Asian nations have a bigger claim on him because Coventry is slowly being turned into Coventry-stan. I'm kind of half relieved about Gerahty actually, I'd rather he just sedately improve to be awesome for the 2011 world cup rather than be chucked in as a forlorn hope and get chewed up in an embarrasing fashion that only Matthew Tait knows. Maybe I'm still haunted by memories of England's fiasco at Cardiff in 2005. Still though the experience up until now has been good for Shane...imagine what it would have been like for Danny Cipriani, he could have had a couple of weeks away with the lads, gone on an adventure training week with the Royal Marines, muck around in Portugal! He's missed out! I'm not surprised Lund has been omitted, I had some real worries about whether he could hack high pressure games in front of hostile crowds. Imagine what a Semi Final against France at the Stade de France would have been like for him! He was rattled something bad at Croke Park (whereas David Strettle just laughed and kept running) while he was positively spooked by the Millenium Stadium crowd. Reminds me of Ian Bell: Rabbit.
