Clearly this is something they recognise in New Zealand, if Eddie Tonks' views are anything to go by. What the Home Unions have done beggars belief. Because it would cause a precedent? Good grief. And what is wrong with a precedent that, if you suffer a bereavement while on tour, you can rejoin the party after the funeral whether or not you have been replaced? I felt sick when I heard about this. If Mr Weighill and his cronies ever talk about the great family of rugby again I shall be sick. They should resign for the good of rugby and British sport. Shame on them.
