Why isn't Rugby Union our national sport?

BBC: England 47-13 Wales

England's pack produced a powerful display as they began their Six Nations campaign with victory against reigning Grand Slam champions Wales.

They're tough, skillful, intelligent, they play by the rules, they are respectful to the referees, when they appear to be injured they really are injured, they know the lyrics to the National Anthem, they don't marry Spice Girls, there isn't a prima donna or designer haircut amongst them, and they seem to have acquired the habit of bloody well winning. What better role models could we hope to find for our English youth?

And it's so much more exciting than bloody cricket.
