Greenwood's ability to restrain himself when angered may or may not have been acquired via an education exactly replicating that of the player whose place he inherited - Will Carling - graduating from Durham University after public schooling at Sedburgh.

Not a good week for Durham sportsmen - disappointed England cricket captaincy claimant Nasser Hussain also spent his student days there.
