At the end of the match when England were down two blokes last week against the Pumas, Jonny May had to fill in on the flank for a short while in the scrum.
A video of him packing down has gone viral as he puts his head between the legs of the loose head prop!
The popular view (not the one that Jonny got!) is that he didn’t have a clue about stuff that goes on in the scrum.
This is patently not the case – Jonny obviously saw this as his opportunity to ensure that he was never asked to get anywhere near the low numbers in the future.
A man after my own heart – short term ridicule being worth a lifetime of not having to mix it with the big bastards up front. Smart bloke!
I just wish that I’d thought of it when I was playing!
