I am fuming.

England have announced they are going to wear a black change strip at the Rugby World Cup when there is a clash with their traditional white. Pathetic.

I also understand there is going to be some kind of Maori iconography on the Nike jersey, which I find shameful if true.

Already the English have included nine foreign born players in their squad and now the Red Rose is turning Black. What on earth does black have to do with England? The colors of the flag are red, white and blue.

Truly pathetic.
