    Is he one of the 'English' players? I understand that the 'England' captain is actually Irish, that several of the 'England' players ran away from the champagne as if confronted by a demon, and that one chap was born in the Caribbean?

    It's hardly village greens and warm beer and the Vicar's wife ona bicycle, is it?

    Morgan's mother is English and he has held British citizenship since he was a baby, while Archer's father was born in England.

    Anyway, these are the benefits of empire. We get a slightly bigger pool in which to fish.

    I mean Colin of Bigman. Ridicules.

    Mind you, I'm pretty sure that Lockie and Kane aren't real names either.

    I hadn't considered translating Colin. That's even better. Imagine the confusion with which his name is greeted in France.
