Homoeopathy is a bizarre relic of the 18th century, a magical ritual cast over water or sugar pills, claiming to create medicines but failing to pass objective testing. In spite of this, a £40m homoeopathic industry prospers in Britain. You can buy homoeopathic vaccines, or go on a homoeopathic diet.

Whatever the Nigerian-born centre Ayoola Erinle brings to the England midfield on his first Test start this weekend, it is unlikely to be a kicking game that will leave some of the world's more rounded No 12s – Berrick Barnes of Australia, Luke McAlister of New Zealand, Felipe Contepomi of Argentina – wondering where they went wrong.
