The spring semester is really heating up, so I'm getting behind in the things I want to say!
From the weekend's 6-Nations games: new prizes. It's not just about winning or losing (though, frankly, it is mostly); it's how you play the game. So play it in style.
Looks most like Vlad Putin: Italy's Sergio Parisse
Most buff Scot: Chris Paterson
Most dashing Italian: McLean
Most handsome: Ireland's Ronan O'Gara
Best butt: Scotland's Mike Blair
Best move: passing the ball to nobody (so many players did this that it's useless to list them all)
Most astonishingly short: Ireland's Peter Stringer (Stringer will of course win this every single time he plays, but it's worth noting that many of his teammates and opponents would actually have to lean down to rest their chin on his head.)
As pale as his uniform: England's Mike Tindall (The 15 for the Rose playing in white)
Best nose: England's number 13, whatever his name.
