As we're on the subject of try celebrations, I have to say I was very amused by how Maro Itoje celebrated his try against Harlequins at the weekend by feigning being asleep - in reference to the claims by various scribes (including yours truly) that he needed a rest.

Whilst admittedly Itoje's try-scoring performance against Quins was full of energy, it does not (in my humble opinion) detract from the argument that his workload over the past 18 months has been somewhat excessive and that, once the season is done and dusted, he should be allowed to spend a prolonged period on a beach somewhere rather than be subjected to 3 arduous Tests in South Africa.
