RWC: Squads, profiles and news


Most interesting squad announcement was the English (World Cup defenders, don't forget) announcing their 'Dads Army' of cup defenders. There's oodles of analysis and comment from the media, online fraternity and South African coaches (hee hee). Oh, and the Irish have announced their squad
