Ruck and Maul: Stevens not aware that he can teach kids about drug awareness

Lawrence Dallaglio, the London Wasps director and former captain, has remarked that his club would be happy to sign Matt Stevens when the England prop's drugs ban is up in 2011, and Bath are also "keen" to have their former employee back. As revealed in these pages in September, Stevens has been keeping fit by training and competing in the martial art Brazilian Jujitsu. More recently, the South African-born front-rower told ITV he "would have liked to have been able to coach kids, even if it had a kind of drug- awareness angle to it, but the ban is quite stringent in that regard. I can see why... you need to keep [those who fail drugs tests] away from the sport so you don't set bad examples." This is not quite true. The International Rugby Board have confirmed to Ruck and Maul that Stevens – in common with anyone serving a similar suspension – is permitted to undertake educational work on the dangers and effects of drugs.

English clubs hold back next generation

Freddie Burns' match-winning performance for Gloucester against Leicester on Friday was not supposed to happen. Burns, 19, was one of a clutch of promising young English fly-halves given a rare first-team chance in the past fortnight's Anglo-Welsh Cup ties but then dropped or shifted aside this weekend for the return of the Premiership.

Described by his club coach as the most charismatic player on the planet, he will not beat England on his own, but nor is he just a pantomime villain in a distracting sideshow as France seek a fifth Six Nations title in eight years.

Stay The Night: Chalet Treize Etoiles, Verbier

Verbier is both a top-quality resort and undisputed fun capital of the Alps, and those who want to join James Blunt, Ronan Keating and Lawrence Dallaglio in the Coco Club after midnight should consider Ski Verbier's new Treize Etoiles complex. Of the matched pair of chalet apartments, the top one has an open roof space that gives it an airy penthouse feel. The flagship in Ski Verbier's 20-chalet portfolio is Septième Ciel, up the mountain – an elevated palace in which the tour highlight is the double bed shared by the Beckhams. But Treize Etoiles offers similar comfort in a more party-friendly location.
