Sam Burgess leaves coaching role after ‘very serious’ allegations

Prop: Paul Doran Jones 

Despite the good early promise in his career, he spent most of his time in England colours being turned upside down in the set-piece and being battered backwards in contact.

Lock: Mouritz Botha 

He packed a punch in the tackle but never really looked comfortable at Test level.

Lock: Louis Deacon

Now Deacon was as tough as nails, but was about as mobile and athletic as the very comfy sofa that I’m currently sat on and offered next to no threat to opponents. Unfortunately, he falls into that category of England players whose best quality was ‘being brave’, which fills you with admiration…but not a whole lot of confidence.
