Exclusive interview with David Strettle and Danny Care

Exclusive interview with David Strettle and Danny Care

A while back I asked for some of you to submit questions via the Facebook Page for England backs David Strettle and Danny Care. Following that, Rugbydump was given the opportunity to interview them ahead of the new season. This is what they had to say in what was a very laid back, interesting interview.

When being told I could get some questions together for David Strettle, it immediately made me think back to that hilarious clip from a Question of Sport a few years back where he failed to answer what most thought was a pretty straight forward question. Not being able to resist, we bring that up again in this interview.

There's also a few other funny question and answers for the two of them, who are clearly good mates after their time at Harlequins together, despite Strettle now moving on to Saracens.

Amongst some of the more pressing questions asked regard England and their World Cup chances next year, what it's like having Martin Johnson as a coach, and how much of a wake up call was the horrific injury to Scotland's Thom Evans earlier in the year.

We also get to find out who has the better sidestep of the two, who is the faster sprinter, and which of the two would get further in Britains Got Talent.

Oceana kingston, weyhey! Two nice lads, see them out and about quite a bit back home. Hope danny can pick up and regain his place back in the England squad. Shirts are a tad ridiculous though.

Hmmm, I was wondering, where can I get one of those real homo tops....

Strettle looks a bit odd actually...funny couple of guys but his arms look a bit out of proportion.....im guessing its the cut of the homo tops that does it but yerrr.....

Welcome to Martin Johnson's "the guy with the biggest biceps will get a sopt in the starting XV" programme!

Danny Care can bulk himself up all he wants, he's never gonna be better than Ben Youngs or Joe Simpson.

Strettle has always had ridiculously large biceps....not just since johnson was coach....

I pretty sure having large biceps wouldnt get you a 'sopt' in the starting XV

Have you never made a mistake while writing on a keyboard?
