The Alternative Six Nations Awards 2017

BEST GRAPHICS AWARD

Italy produced three beautiful and innovative posters to advertise their three home games against Wales,Ireland and France.

BEST NATIVITY SCENE

During the official tournament launch in January, there was obviously a bit of an advent hangover at the Hurlingham club, as the official photographs were taken in a stable.

BEST HAIR EXTENSION

England v France at Twickenham created a few hair-raising moments as the Red Roses demolished France.

BEST QUOTE OF THE OPENING WEEKEND

“Followers are for Twitter” by new Wales captain Alun-Wyn Jones was so good it was even translated into French.

MOST HEARTWARMING CELEBRATION

A last-minute win for Scotland Women, against Wales, created the most wonderful genuine joyous celebration, it was their first six nations win for seven years.

THE RUBIK PRIZE

England win this award for their utter bemusement at Italy’s “we don’t give a ruck” attitude when everyone expected them to roll over at Twickenham.

OUT OF THIS WORLD TELEVISION COVERAGE AWARD

How is it a man in the space station can get a better reception than me, only a stones throw from the crystal palace transmitter ? wonder if he hung on for “embarrassing bodies”

THE MOST UNUSER FRIENDLY TROPHY OF THE TOURNAMENT

This was a nailed on certainty, the Garibaldi trophy that is presented to the annual winners of the match between France and Italy.

Now I’m no Rodin, but to me it looks like a cross between a railway sleeper and smashed up scalextrix set.
