SHIT/GOOD™ Ratings: RBS 6 Nations, Round One
The flashy and the flushy, as judged by the worst computer in history.
This blog post - Evidence, if more were needed that I know sod all.
Phillipe Saint-Andre - Anyone who has any idea of what he's done to his squad over Christmas please send them to Cestquoicemerdieremail@example.com
Sam Warburton - It gives no pleasure to have his name in here, but he is truly poor at the minute. Tipuric is easily the best seven in Wales at the moment, and Sam is probably the 3rd best six, so that should leave him dropped. It can't be a coincidence that his form has gone south ever since he started wearing the hat, it must be impregnated with SHITness.
James Haskell - Because he will always be in this section until he retires.
The Six Nations - There is always trepidation when a new tournament rolls around, what if it doesn't live up to the weeks of waiting, nervous excitement and that you're looking for this to basically make late winter worth living through? Well, this weekend proved that we need not fear, and we will all live to see mid-March at least. Unless you're Welsh.
Billy Twelvetrees - A magnificent selection that showed exactly what England have been missing at 12 for so very long. Mystified as to why he was taken off in a winning debut performance, but the number and types of replacements used is Scourge of SHIT all over the game at the minute.
Simon Zebo - Not for the Ossie Ardiles style flick-kick, which was more lucky than anything; but for the soft hands that followed it, and for his solid, classy performance in the face of much bigger, more experienced opposite number.
Sergio Parisse - Every time you make jokes about how everyone gushes about him too much, he goes and puts in a performance that makes you want to gush about him too much.
Remember that the SHIT/GOOD Ratings are not a definitive list but a starting point so get stuck in in the comments.
