Six Nations Chumps 2009

Very briefly, then, a summary of the numpties of this season's Six Nations:

15. Andrea Masi - for the unique achievement of being sin-binned in the first minute against Ireland for a ridiculously dangerous high tackle, easily worthy of a straight red.

14. Paul Sackey - did he actually wake up?

13. Yannick Jauzion - so far off his best against England in particular it was bordering on the embarrassing.

12. Shane Geraghty - for taking out an Italian in the air and being sin-binned within 2 minutes of coming on as a replacement.

11. Simon Webster - for knocking himself out and then vomiting on the pitch against Wales.

10. Andy Goode - for being fat, slow and for not tackling. And for not being able to kick - a fatal flaw for a kicking fly half.

9. Mauro Bergamasco - not his fault, but we all know why he's in this list. Danny Care was a close second.

1. Geoff Cross - for taking Lee Byrne out in the air and then receiving a yellow card whilst being stretchered off unconscious.

2. Matthew Rees - for failing to hit a barn door with a banjo against Ireland.

3. Phil Vickery - exactly how many times does a referee have to say "let go of the ball number 3"?

4. Jason White - for not being anywhere near the standard required for an international lock.

5. Luke Charteris - for having all the physical presence of an overgrown runner bean.

6. James Haskell - for an idiotic trip against Italy and for wearing white boots.

7. Sebastian Chabal - playing him at openside was almost as mad as playing Bergamasco at scrum half.

8. Andy Powell - post-Scotland was revealed as a one trick pony - and even that trick wasn't very impressive.

Its hard to believe that Luke Charteris is one of the heaviest locks in the championship at 124 kgs! He must have had lead in socks at the weigh in!
