    God Save the Queen is more of a British than English thing. It would be nice to hear something else when we do sporting events and so on ...

    You think? I never have trouble. Are you talking about the melody, or the fact that not everyone knows the words?
    It's more the pitch, it's fairly high for something designed to be bellowed out at a sport's arena or somesuch.

    I just couldn't imagine it being sung at the 6 Nation's, for example

    Not a problem, just orchestrate it a fifth lower!

    Why couldn't you imagine that?
