Howlett reporting was sensationalist

I just want to place on the record my disgust at the standard of reporting on Doug Howlett's recent arrest by your journalist David Kelly. Talk about over the top and sensationalist -- get over it, nobody died.

To then go on and include Paul O'Connell's appeal and reference to a member of the team's backline "jumping ship" in the same article in an effort to paint an image of a team in crisis is unwarranted.

Why would Paul Warwick turn down what I imagine is a better, longer-term offer from Stade Francais when the IRFU is only offering him a one-year deal? This is hardly a case of "jumping ship".
