My Players of the Tournament so far:

Italy

Image

David Bortolussi: On form with fantastic tactical and place kicking in the Italy v England Match.

Wales

Image

Shane Williams: Lightning Pace, Fantastic Agility and attempting the impossible. Two fantastic tries against Scotland recently.

France

Image

Vincent Clerc: Three fantastic tries against Ireland last week in Paris. Fantastic speed, support running and angle running.

England

Image

Lesley Vainikolo: Fantastic Physical Runs on the Wing and in midfield. Massive physical presence and fantastic tactful skills. Absolutely magical in the air.

Ireland

Image

Ronan O'Gara: Fantastic Place kicking and tactical kicking against Italy, integral to the Ireland Fudge in Paris.

Scotland

Image

Chris Paterson: The best kicker in the world at the moment, absolutely flawless. He is the only thing that keeps Scotland in the matches.

Why is it hilarious?

Is it because it looks like Kaine Robertson is pulling Brian O'Driscolls shorts down?

yeah lets be honest..unless you live where rugby is played..no one cares.
No offense...I'm sure if it was played over here I'd watch it but otherwise it's not really big.

Every heard of the San Diego Sevens Tournament?

Did you know the USA won the Olympic Gold for Rugby?

Did you know that Rugby is bigger than the NFL?

Yes there is offense taken. Due to your tactlessness I shall retaliate.

Marvel is dead where I live, everyone laughs at images of Batman and Spiderman. It represents unquestionable niavety.

I'm not surprised. Rugby is more world wide as the NFL is more popular in America. There's just something about hitting someone else that is so fun. :D
