There’s no doubting that, at his best, Dylan Hartley, of Northampton and England, is a brilliant, feisty rugby player.
But following his latest ban for foul play, it’s time for England to move on.
We cannot risk him seeing red in a critical World Cup match and it costing us the game.
This ban will put him up to fifty four weeks of his career he will now have been banned. He’s just too much of a liability now.
I hope that Stuart Lancaster will see sense and move on. Hartley just isn’t worth it.
