Six Nations Lookalikes

There's no Six Nations action this weekend, and with bans and injuries taking up the headlines I decided to lighten the mood.

Here are a few Six Nations heroes (or villains, depending on your point of view) as you've never seen them before...

First up, James "Brand" Haskell, aka muscle bound cartoon character Johnny Bravo:

Always a hit with the ladies

Next up is Haskell's mighty leader.  No, not Steve Borthwick (as we all know he's just the instrument of a Higher Power).  I am of course referring to the Higher Power himself, Martin "Star Trek" Johnson, who bares a remarkable resemblence to a Ferengi:


Of course Johnno's not the only coach with a doppelganger on the silver screen.  Roll up Scotland's Andy Robinson, who almost masterminded a dramatic victory over Wales.  I'll get you next time, Mr. Gatland...

Ersnt Stavro Robinson:  Foiled again.

Clinging on to the England coach is Shrek, aka mangled eared Graham Roundtree.  I'm just wondering who the Donkey is to Roundtree's friendly ogre?  And more to the point, who is Princess Fiona?


And last but not least:

One for all and all for one....  It's a little known fact that France's Mathieu Bastereaud starred in 80's kid's TV show "Dogtanian and the Three Muskahounds":

Muskahounds are always ready (to drunkenly fall against a chair in their hotel room)

If I think of any more I'll be sure to add them. 


  1. I can't believe you forgot Andy Powell/Keith Lemon!!

  2. Does Haskell have that much hair??? :-) And Matt Dawson was always Ferenghi boy!

  3. holyschmoke: Keith Lemon you say? I will investigate...

    Mally: Haskell has muscles in his hair, and yes I can confirm that he does have as much of it as Johnny Bravo.

    Legend has it that Haskell's sideburns can bench press more than Simon Shaw.
