JEREMY CROSS COLUMN: Moyes’ last chance saloon, Rooney’s troubles, Fury must come clean

26 Sep

WAYNE ROONEY could do worse than secure an invitation for dinner round at Raheem Sterling’s house.


Sterling has been eating soup made from chicken’s feet and it has worked wonders.

The Manchester City ace looks like a different player this season and one finally capable of fulfilling his huge potential.

Rooney, on the other hand, has headed in the opposite direction.

Chicken and chips might be more Rooney’s thing, but desperate times call for desperate measures and once again he needs to show the appetite to prove his critics wrong.

BRITISH Lions coach Warren Gatland should have quit while he was ahead.

Gatland lead the Lions to a famous series win in Australia in 2013 that cemented his place as one of the greatest coaches of the modern era.

Next summer he will look to make it back-to-back triumphs when he takes the best the British Isles have to offer to New Zealand. Good luck with that.

The All Blacks have just won the Rugby Championship with two games to spare after thrashing South Africa.

Last autumn Steve Hansen’s remarkable outfit won the World Cup at Twickenham to provide a fitting finale to the incredible careers of Ritchie McCaw and Dan Carter.

But despite reaching the pinnacle of the game and losing the heartbeat of their side, the All Blacks have somehow become even better and stronger.

There are no weakness, but somehow Gatland will have to find some otherwise it will be a hell of a long flight home following a wasted trip.
