I find your choices.. odd.

A senior member of the England rugby team has notified the press that A) the film the team is going to watch before their epic World Cup final against the Springboks this weekend is "Cool Runnings" starring John Candy and Doug E. Doug.
B) the Song that they've adopted for the team this go 'round is "the Gambler" by Kenny Rogers.

I don't know if it's weirder that they're English and yet a sports movie starring John Candy and a Kenny Rogers song is what they've taken their inspiration from, or the simple fact that ANYONE, of any nation, would want to go onto the proverbial field of battle with those images emblazoned on their shield. Maybe it'll work for them, but personally I'd have chosen "the coward of the county."
