Martyn Thomas RFU exit great news - Will Carling

Former England captain Will Carling believes that the departure of acting chief executive Martyn Thomas from all of his positions at the Rugby Football Union is "great news" for the RFU.

Carling does not think that this decision will have any impact on Martin Johnson's position with England.

However if Johnson were to be replaced he says that Italy's head coach Nick Mallett would top the list of contenders.
