Ferdy goes all Statto! Love it!

Now put them all together in proportion, my young apprentice ;-)

If all matches were played at Loftus Versfeld, it would be Morne`Steyn. I think if you take everything into consideration, is there any fly half that has more to do with his team's success than Johnny Wilkinson? you take away Johnno, England is very pedestrian. With Johnno, it is team that is very, very dangerous.

LOL1 I'm a terrible mathematician, I can't do proportions! I had a couple of days off sick, and it took me about eight hours to do these basic designs. I would be a very slow graphic designer.

Nursedude! Great to hear from you. You must be in NZ by now? I hope you're having a wonderful time and the kiwis are giving you a warm hospitable welcome. I agree with you about both Steyn and Wilko. Combined with decent forward, they have managed to keep their teams at near the top of world level (without calling for much flair from the backs).

Anyway - I absolutely admire Jonny Wilkinson. He is one of the true greats. I think England will be formidable with him this tournament (but not unbeatable)... hopefully.
