FILE -- In this Saturday Nov. 6, 2010 file photo, England's Dylan Hartley reacts during an international rugby union match against New Zealand at Twickenham stadium, in London. The fuse was lit for a potentially explosive opening match in the Six Nations when England reacted on Wednesday Jan. 26, 2011, to stinging criticism of hooker Dylan Hartley by outspoken Wales coach Warren Gatland. Gatland delivered a verbal attack on Hartley, labeling him a choker and questioning whether he would stand up to the occasion in the match between the fierce northern-hemisphere rugby rivals on Feb. 4 in Cardiff, Wales. England manager Martin Johnson shrugged off Gatland's attempts to goad Hartley, saying the comments serve only to strengthen the unity in his squad for the tournament curtainraiser. less
