Sir: Chris Hewett's defence of Martin Johnson cannot be applauded. This terrific second row forward has a dark streak in him and the recent incidents in which he has been involved are not even representative of his worst moments.

I have played with big men like him and I could never understand why some of them resort to the cowardly punch or boot.

He is a good player but I would not be surprised to see him sent off soon when he really oversteps the mark (or someone's head). Getting petulant in his old age?
