It is a confusing time of year. Steve Borthwick, the new England captain, played his final game for Bath at the Recreation Ground without realising it, while Lawrence Dallaglio, one of the half-dozen most celebrated players of the professional era, does not know for sure whether he will kiss goodbye to the game he loves at High Wycombe tomorrow or at Twickenham next weekend. Leicester, meanwhile, have flummoxed themselves by qualifying for a Premiership semi-final they publicly declared to be beyond them. Contrary to expectation, not least their own, they may yet retain their title.

You might be popping, flaring, waving or freezing. Or maybe you're locking or windmilling, head-spinning or top rocking. All the same, you'd be hip-hop dancing, or b-boying.

The less England said about Danny Cipriani yesterday – and they went out of their way to say as little as possible about the decision to drop the Wasps prodigy from the team for being spotted and snapped at a Mayfair nightspot in the small hours of Thursday morning – the more the incident dominated the build-up to this afternoon's Calcutta Cup match at Murrayfield. The game is likely to be played in conditions that might have been designed to make life impossible for a full-back. Strange to relate, Cipriani may yet have cause to thank his lucky stars.
