Agreed. I was down the club for breakfast with my chum, and former Guards officer, StJohn Beauford this morning and gauged his reaction when he read about this in the Telegraph. The reaction entailed one twitch of his moustache, a crisp folding of the paper followed by an uneasy silence for the rest of the meal. Such fury I have rarely seen. No doubt he will have sent a robust letter to the editor in the morning, cc-ing in Dr Liam Fox.

Anyway, I'd be interested to hear your views on the England side to face New Zealand. I'm of the opinion that the pack is powerful and sturdy, and the backs proficient. I was however disgusted to see the addition of Hodgson and Fourie on the bench. I'm also hopeful that the referee, who I gather is a Frenchie, might in the spirit of military cooperation stop the colonials from their usual cheating - a good showing by Jean-Pierre and StJohn might be persuaded not to come over all 1605 on Westminster.

StJohn Beauford sounds like a wise man. I believe Hypatia spent a few years in the service of Queen and Country, so we shall see what he has to say.

Fairly happy with the XV, old bean. A nice strong front row, good halves, sturdy centres, and some decent flyers in the back three. I wouldn't mind seeing a tad more beef in the back five of the pack, but these speedy long-legged specimens probably suit the modern rules.

French refs suit England perfectly, old boy. They allow a proper contest at the scrummage for one thing. Who is this Fourie character? Some sort of Boer? What the dickens is he doing in an England squad?

I'll have more to say on the rugger later in the week.

I am just trying to remember what happened the last time the British and the French military's cooperated in war...

... Ah yes! I remember now. Dunkirk.

Having said that I’d have no gripes slipping in to one of their young fillies sleeping bags during a training exercise...

I should also add there we had a couple of frogs in my intake at the RMAS. They never shined their shoes, their hats looked like they were designed for a MCDonald's burger flipper and they marched with their palms opened rather than fists clenched - it just wasn't right.

Rather be in with the French than the Americans. At least then the estates in Normandy can be properly looked after. I do feel as though we ought to make more use of the Commonwealth in these situations, though.

Quite right about the Commonwealth, Horace. Those blighters ought to be under British command 24/7.

Good heavens, Hypatia, that French filly would give some of the lissom IDF wenches a run for their money in the soldiering boffability stakes. Ding dong!

Ah, well, if they give you tips on tanks with reverse gears, you can give them tips on ignominious evacuations.

Perhaps it would be better, though, if you went in with the Hun instead of the French. After all, it's almost 200 years since that famous German victory at Waterloo, when the German soldier saved the English army for the umpteenth time...
