WATCH | Danny Care’s moment of stupidity vs Ireland 2009

Danny Care gets himself sin binned and costs England three points for a pointless and “petulant” indiscretion of charging into the back of Ireland prop Marcus Horan.

Commentator Brian Moore slams Care’s act as just plain “stupid” and England coach Martin Johnson doesn’t look best pleased either.

The brain fart by Care ultimately cost England the game with Ireland winning by one point at Croke Park in February 2009


LIST | 5 times Martin Johnson proved he was rugby’s greatest captain

Known for his strong leadership and no-nonsense approach to the game, 2003 World Cup winning Captain of England Martin Johnson is often perceived as the best rugby leader of all-time.

Here’s five times he proved this was true…

1. The moment of World Cup victory

Australia 17-20 England, 22 November 2003

Johnson, like all great players, delivered when the stakes were at their highest and arguably saved his best England game for last.

His performance in the World Cup final was exceptional – dominant in the line-out and brutally effective in the tight exchanges.

When England threatened to lose a game they should have won handsomely, he galvanised his troops for one final push.

Clear-headed enough to set up the winning position in the 100th minute, his leadership brought ultimate glory.
