Batting above his average?

Speaking of blokes who have batted above their average (i.e. Danny Cipriani - Kelly Brook), news this week that former England and Wasps (and current London Welsh) winger Paul Sampson has married the rather beautiful Kirsty Gallacher (pictured).

Now, it may appear a tad harsh to accuse the perfectly presentable Sampson of batting above his average (and, after all, who am I to criticise?) but it does appear that being a professional rugby player certainly has its perks nowadays.

Other examples of blokes who have arguably swum a yard or two out of their depth in recent times include Gavin Henson, Mike Tindall and maybe even Brian O'Driscoll (although being rugby deity probably disqualifies him from the list).

I'm sure there must be others - answers on the back of a postcard please...
