1. Gloucester and England World Cup winning centre, Mike Tindall, is arrested for drunk driving - three times over the legal limit. Despite hiring one of those morally dubious lawyers who tries to get people off of charges purely through 'technicalities' like mis-spellings, he receives a three year ban.
- A month later he is recalled into the England squad.
2. Bath and England prop forward Matt Stevens tests positive for cocaine.
- A week later he is banned from professional rugby for two years by the RFU.
Points to note -

Girlfriend of Mike Tindall - Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Phillips
Girlfriend of Matt Stevens - who knows?
