Wondering what is for dinner seems perfectly reasonable for a professional sportsman - after all you are only as good as the fuel that you put in yourself at that level.
Of course the wranglings at the RFU have had no effect - all plans are in place (training camp, warm up games, flights, hotels etc.) so it is now just up to the coaches to select the correct final squad and get out there to make a good showing of ourselves.
The issue really is the next World Cup - unless the RFU get their house in order (sack the whole management board in my opinion and start again) I can honestly see the IRB considering another union to host it! There are plenty of other unions who would be chomping at the bit and its not like they haven't take it away from a country before...
I cannot wait to arrive in New Zealand and see how much improvement the training camp has made in the team. The warm-up games should be interesting but will really show us nothing! Roll on Argentina...

In the case of some of the players their only concern is what's for dinner :L

Without the men in blazers to slow you down, your job will be easier. Good luck in the RWC - lets get on and concentrate 100% on what happens on the pitch.
