Last year I noted my surprise on seeing a production of Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker! in High Wycombe complete with recorded music but no orchestra. I thought it a little off that the production magically found an orchestra when it played in London. This week that rather bizarre policy became official. The Arts Council gave a sizeable grant for a new work by Bourne, which again will have recorded music everywhere apart from the capital.

It is about as clear as mud, which is as it should be. As this season's round-robin stage shifts past its mid-point, it would be easier to calculate the long-term benefits of organic carrot consumption than to identify the likely quarter-finalists.

Ben Kay, semi-forgotten as a World Cup-winning lock since finding himself out of favour with the England coaching hierarchy following a flaccid 2004 Six Nations Championship campaign, will have an opportunity to remind Andy Robinson and company of his considerable gifts when Leicester and Wasps resume their Heineken Cup rivalry at Welford Road on Sunday. Kay has been recalled to the Midlanders' starting formation in preference to Louis Deacon, who drops to the bench - the only change to the side that won last weekend's marvellous opening skirmish at High Wycombe.

On Saturday I treated the Barbarians v New Zealand at Twickenham with what the late George Brown used to call a complete ignoral, reserving my enthusiasm for Wasps v Leicester at High Wycombe on the following day. By all accounts, I was right.
