Stu Ridley, 25, who played for Hexham, from a brain tumour. Probably not that notable other than for his age and for the name of his home.

How rugby instills the work ethic.


Has Danny Cipriani ever actually done anything on a rugby pitch? He's famous for getting dropped from the England squad before he made his international debut because he was at a nightclub at midnight two days before a match, and now b/c he's reportedly knobing Kelly Brook. Oh, and according to Wiki he once dated a Cheeky Girl. With that track record I'm not surprised Josh Lewsey clocked him.

 

Danny Cipriani now in danger of being kicked off the team for a second time after a drink-driving-crash incident:

A risky bet for people who also pick Paul Gascoigne or Charlie Sheen.
