The winner is…
Big Geoff has been taking Scotland and the Rugby Autumn Internationals by the scruff of their neck and given them a good kicking. Rugby is pretty good at beards, but this has raised the stakes to new heights.
The runners up…
Moeen Ali, English Cricketer
It’s been a big month for Moeen Ali and the England cricket team who’ve discovered that Ali is really rather good at batting. He hit the third fastest century in one day cricket, eventually hitting 119 from 87 balls. Subsequently his beard has become seriously high-profile.
Charlie Faumuina, New Zealand Rugby Union
One man stepping up to the challenge from Geoff Cross is New Zealand’s Charlie Faumuina. This straggly cheeked prop has been one of the key players in a formidable All-Black for the past two years and this beard has been ever-present.
Lewis Hamilton, English Formula One
This beard might not have the girth, length or meatiness of the others but it’s the one that’s been seen around the world after being attached to a Formula One champion. What it lacks in volume, it makes up for in fame.
