RBS Player of the Tournament- Shitlist

That time of the tournament again and the Gods have spoken, the shortlist announced as follows:

Imanol Harinordoquy
Mathieu Bastareaud
Morgan Parra
Thierry Dusautoir
Tommy Bowe
Shane Williams

Come on lads, show some imagination will you. Undoubtedly Harinordoquy and Parra deserve their places but the rest seem to hint that this list was made before the tournament. Shane Williams, as ever the hero of Wales, but has he had a better tournament than Poitrenaud? Tommy Bowe is in fine form but surely Earls or O’Leary are ahead of him thus far. As for Dusatoir and Bastareaud, just seems lazy when you compare them to Italy’s two try newcomer Canavosio.

Dyou not think?

  1. Grown up with rugby union. Our Dad has been Honorary Treasurer at Huddersfield RUFC (or The Club ) for longer than I’ve been alive (I’m 23), so it’s alawys been in my life. Some of my earliest memories are of me and my twin sister messing around during matches at the grounds of the old club house! And now we work part time behind the bar, which has happily picked up again now the season’s started. I like the international matches, been to Twickenham to see 6 Nations matches a few times as my Dad can get tickets through the Club, which is fantastic! In fact, a couple of years ago he was honoured by the RFU for his long service, he had an all expenses paid trip to Twickers for the England- Italy game, including access to the players bar before the game, and the VIP’s dinner that night at the Intercontinental Hotel in Park Lane. Very snazzy!My house, particularly my Mum, has been counting down the days/weeks to the World Cup!I’ve a picture of me and my sister with Martin Johnson when he came to the Club a few years ago, and a picture of my whole family and me stood next to the Webb Ellis Trophy when it went on tour in 2004 to Rugby Union clubs.Sorry, I’ll shut up now.
