Harry Ellis: A star is born

While it was great to see Jonny Wilkinson back in an England shirt yesterday, the most important thing about the victory may well turn out to be the emergence of Harry Ellis. For the first time since the 2003 World Cup, we have a world-class scrum half. And he play for Leicester Tigers.

Let's hope he doesn't hurry to go on A Question of Sport or take up ballroom dancing.

Although I'm cock-a-hoop about Harry's performance yesterday (mainly because I picked him up cheap for my fantasy side) lets not get carried away. He wasn't he was playing behind a pack that was going forward so never really had any pressure on him, and the Scottish fringe defence was awful, you could have driven a bus through some of those holes.

I'm going to wait and see what he does in a close game against an international class back row.
