Blunder lands Kay free pizza until 2007!

After the game, Kay joked of his clanger: "After I'd dropped it I was thinking Pizza Hut would be on the phone and I'd be doing adverts for the rest of my life."

Kay was referring to the likes of Tony Underwood and Mike Catt who featured in an advert with All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu after he pummelled them to the ground in the 1995 World Cup semi-final.

Now, the pizza chain has stepped in and whilst he won't be appearing on any TV screens soon, he will be able to gorge himself on Meat Feasts and Hawaiians all he likes until England defend their title in France in 2007.

A spokesperson for Pizza Hut said: "Ben had suggested that we might make him the star of a new Pizza Hut ad but, like the rest of the nation, we believe he and the rest of the team are heroes.

"We have decided instead to reward Ben free pizza until the next Rugby World Cup; hopefully he will be able to get a good grip on that."
