A year later, at the World Cup in Italy, and still only a Second Division player, Bull became England's wild card option
in the squad.
This season, Gatland can only pick two "captured" players utilising his wild card option
and he already has two players who fit into that category in Jamie Roberts and Rhys Priestland.
Michael Owen is the wild card option
but Capello is right to silence the debate about the former Newcastle United man.
Of course, another wild card option
would be starting on the wing with scrum-half Lloyd Williams, who has already made a huge impact in the position during this World Cup with his cross-kicking cameo against England.
There is of course, the wild card option
of Iestyn Harris, who has had his moments in the championship and offers real creativity.
For in the wake of the sad death last weekend of Darren Clarke's wife Heather, Woosnam's wild card options
have been made more complicated.
