Gifts under Planet Rugby’s tree

Date published: December 25 2014

With it being Christmas, we have decided to send Father Christmas a note requesting what we wish he would bring as presents for some rugby folk.

Remember now, this is tongue in cheek, so don’t take it too seriously. Merry Christmas!

Dylan Hartley – A high dosage batch of chill-pills should be top of the Northampton Saints skipper’s list to Santa as he continues to let his side down with rash bouts of indiscipline.

Sonny Bill Williams – A new pair of boxing gloves would be the perfect gift for the Chiefs and All Blacks centre who will make his long-awaited return to the boxing ring at the end of January.

World Rugby Like wise men following the Star of Bethlehem, rugby’s top suits as ever seek the perfect solution to their troublesome scrum niggles, concussion management and some refinement of the TMO protocols. Let’s hope they find it all under their tree on Christmas morning.
