Andy Robinson has named his Elite Player Squad for the 2006/07 season, and Sarries' Andy Farrell is once again on the list. Let's hope he's fit enough this year to actually get a run out on the park! Farrell apparently has an aura about him, akin to Martin Johnson. Perhaps a bit early in his Union career to be making such statements, but I would dearly love him to make a difference to the England team this year. God knows we need a boost somehow.
Similarly, Jonny Wilkinson returns to the White Jersey Brigade after his injury battles. I have seen him play for Newcastle and The Lions, but never managed to catch him playing for England. Fingers crossed.
Also, the usual close-season merry-go-round has finally stopped and we can now see who's sitting where (and who's got no chair when the music stops).
Here's a picture of Jonny lining up a penalty for the Lions vs Argentina game last year in Cardiff.
