In the same vein, my English rugby fan friends used to absolutely hate Gareth Thomas, and a couple now feel the same about Sanjay, weirdly - they think he's a dirty, aggro player, which I don't get at all. He's always been one to tackle hard, but the first to check that his opponent's OK and help them to their feet afterwards. Clap

Ironically, Sanjay's biggest critic among my friends is a Quins fan who thinks Mike Brown can do no wrong. LOL

Rob Evans also comes in for a bit of stick for his lippiness, and many seem to be waiting eagerly for Cubby's next misdemeanour, but it was good to seem him check on the Toulon 9 after slamming him (perfectly fairly) into the advertising hoardings on Saturday. HugOuch

The Irish also despise Sanjay, mostly Ulster fans. I think it stems from when he dropped his shoulder onto Paddy "squeaky clean" Jackson.

Ashton has some history of being a bit of a dirty player. Tuilagi's retribution was savage and nearly took Ashton's head off!!!! He is not my cup of tea even if he's good with the kids after games. He's certainly no role model.
