Incredible. A player renowned for not being the bravest bust his foot
playing the Saffers and didn't go off.

Well, he played 10 with a broken foot. Nothing doubtful in that.
Either they have some pretty special injections in the medical bag, or
he's tougher than I've ever given him credit for.

Time to fastrack Owen Farrell? Flutey is not the answer. Myler is back
to form after a shaky start to the season, but he won't get a look in.

Or as often is the case he simply didnt know since his boot kept it all
together and he thought it was a mere bruise. often the real pain comes
later with breaks.

I'm nervous about any Farrell's after the last one, I'm also opposed
to Saffracens for purely illogical and spiteful reasons. Still, the
lad is going well.
Think we can afford a bigger 12 that can kick, 9 and 10 are going so
well, and the BRF's are dealing with insurgents easily, we can afford
the option to go route one from 12 and lay it back/pass out of the
tackle. Possible that eyebrows has already thought of this so I'll
shut up.....

Perhaps. When I broke mine I knew about it. I had motorbike boots on
but couldn't change gear afterwards, yet alone stand on the pegs.

What kind of medical analysis is "a broken foot"? One quarter of the
bones in the human body are in the foot and some of them aren't that vital.

And then there's broken and cracked. The quack might say you've got a
broken bone but it's not broken right through.

Now, playing with a broken arm, that's serious. See Colin Meads in South
Africa.

Hodgson is one of those players that I perhaps have a blind spot for.
I have never rated him and as a result I probably dont see his good
play

According to wikipedia Andy Farrell is 35.
Owen Farrell is 19.
Andy is Owen's dad?

Correct age or young dad?

This coming from someone who was 37 when kid number 1 arrived

How did you do that? I broke my collar bone on the field and could not
lift my arm after 5 minutes. Medics told me it was just bruising but
when I could hear the bone scraping against itself every time I tried to
move it I walked off.
