Sports Letter: Flower power

Sir: I am sure that a new anthem is needed for major sporting occasions involving England. My main interest is rugby and I have long thought it ridiculous that the National anthem should be played for England at Murrayfield, for example, while the Scots have "Flower of Scotland", which is of course much more rousing.

So it is not just the Football Association which should consider a change but the Rugby Football Union as well.
