Excellent article, and very glad to see Matt Dawson being eloquently called out for his outrageous arrogance and small mindedness. I also find it staggering that such well paid, professional rugby players seemed to genuinely struggle with adapting to a perfectly legal tactic that has been used before. To be fair to Dylan Hartley, he has now been honest enough to admit that England should have reacted better. Shame Mr Dawson couldn't show that type of honest assessment.

He's bitter because it was Brendan Venter's idea, and he can't stand him. http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/apr-2002-brendan-venter-of-london-irish-swaps-blows-with-matt-dawson-picture-id1005220
