    Hi Flats and Shanks – I love your podcast! One thing I’d love to know is, what is the best practical joke you’ve seen on a team mate (or yourself) and is there anyone who has taken a practical joke really badly, or one that has gone way too far?
    Also, do you think England can extend their unbeaten run through the entire Six Nations? x
