BEARD OF SIX NATIONS POLL: FINAL DAY DECIDER
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with what may be the most hirsute Six Nations Rugby Championship ever, the Beard of the Six Nations poll has now reached the stage of the final day decider.
For the final round of matches the top placed hirsute player from each of the six nations goes into a decider poll.
The result is announced at 6pm as Ireland v England reaches a conclusion
The campaigners say that the Beard of the Six Nations is not just about beards in the abstract but also about the impact they make on play.
The impact of beards on the field has meant that even noted pogonophobes such as Clive Woodward who argued in 2013 on the BBC that he wouldn’t select players with beards, have been marginal voices until this year.
Unfortunately it was reported that England coach Eddie Jones was involved in a pogonophobic incident before England’s game against Italy at Twickenham when he allegedly ordered Jonny May to shave his beard off.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, the Beard of the Six Nations poll is our answer to people like Eddie Jones who think beards and rugby don’t work together. They do.
