6 Best Beards of the 6 Nations

Geoff Cross, Scotland

Geoff Cross 8The king of them all, and possibly the greatest rugby beard ever seen. Unfortunately not long for this world as a new career as a doctor awaits and, let’s face it, that might not be the most hygienic thing.

Jake Ball, Wales

Jake Ball 4A true patriotic beard, almost the same colour as his Welsh shirt. If he stuck a bunch of daffodils in it, they’d probably make him First Minister.

Uini Atonio, France

Uini Atonio 2Uini Atonio is bloody massive. Over 6’5″ (1.97m) and 24st 6lb (155 kg), it’s not as if he needs the beard to be intimidating. But he does. Be intimidated.

Martin Castrogiovanni, Italy

Martin CastrogiovanniLet’s be honest, he’s not a looker. But in rugby, that doesn’t seem to be a big issue. The bedraggled Italian veteran  seems to be taking on the medieval knight look as made famous by Sebastien Chabal (And, you know, medieval knights…)

Joe Marler, England

Joe Marler 4Marler is another big lad that adds to his presence with his solid-looking beard. Leads the way for England.

Mathieu Bastereaud, France
