    As I posted, the suggestion is the Baa Baas have adopted it due to being RFU affiliated. Seems Crazy to me but there it is.

    A better choice? I have an idea: Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band

    Am I imaging this or didnt England used to sing Jerusalem before kick-off a few years ago in the 6N ?
    GSTQ is a terrible anthem a bit anachronistic for a modern secular nation.

    Surely if England want a new anthem there is only one choice: Flanders and Swan.
