JACK GOODHUE Known as ‘Mississippi Mud Flap’ to some, ‘Tennessee Top Hat’ to others, and just ‘business at the front, party at the back’ to the rest, the mullet modelled by All Blacks back Jack Goodhue could become a major talking point among neutral supporters. At least the opposition will have something to grab hold of. FAF DE KLERK I know what you’re thinking: ‘Blimey, Sharon from Eastenders is looking well these days.’ But you’d be wrong: those are in fact the soft, delicate blond tresses of South Africa scrum half Faf de Klerk. It’s good to learn the difference, should you ever meet one of them in person. Especially if it’s Faf you bump into.
‘His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy, there’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti. He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready…’ England winger Jack Nowell looks as if he’s trying to channel Eminem with his latest haircut, but let’s hope he doesn’t emulate him too much before the next match.
