Mike Tindall sacked and fined by the Rugby Football Union

Tindall should never play for the team again. We have 4 years until the next event and now we need to build, I would remove near enough any player over the age of 26. The potential quality we have in the youth is huge, and they now have experience but they need to learn responsibility, you cant get that if your differing to the old hands. Flood, Youngs, Wood, Lawes etc they have to stand for themselves not behind, JW, Moody and co.

However any rugby fan that questions Tindall's ability and place in the team, should start watching football as they clearly have missed the point of rugby. There isnt a centre in the world that controls the defensive line as well as him. Just because he doesnt run and step or take the limelight he's disregarded as too slow and one dimensional, Ridiculous! How many times has he ever been done for pace? how many missed tackles has he ever made? so he doesnt score 50m tries, have the trolls that critcise him stop to think about how many he assist?

anyone remember the grubber kick against Ireland? Anyone know who put tualigi in for his try in that games? anyone like to hazard a guess at how many pool stage tries he was involved in? Just as a pointer in the last 4 england games that Tindall's played in england conceded 0 tries in the 2 that he didnt they conceded 3. Both the tries england conceded against france can be blamed on poor defence, Manu flew up and out of the line something hes renowned for, and had rightly been pointed out as a significant flaw in his game, He didnt do that once along side Tindall.


you have to have a solid and intelligent defence before you can build a game around attack, with out Tindall england dont have this.

Just as an extra.....you all know about that awesome try, the ashton one that we will cling to and talk about for years? that try didnt start with ashton, it didnt start with lawes and it didnt even start with ben youngs, that try started with a turn over, il let you guess who turned it.
