Five years caught in our documentry...
Five years of Doctor Who...
The Scarlets- Pac-Man
Once great, now they're struggling to survive amongst a sea of more modern competition.
Stephen Jones- the star for the Scarlets, one of the four surviving members of the 2003/04 glory days and the only one still able to hold down their place in the Wales starting team has to be Pac-Man: An icon, even if he is getting on a bit.
The ghosts of Mark Jones and Simon Easterby, both freshly retired, are chasing the younger squad around- Can they build up enough decent scores to avoid being caught?
Edinburgh- Copter Crash
No problems going forward and building up big scores, but when it comes to hits, they always come off second-best. (Most tries scored last year, but also second-most conceded)
Erm, there are characters in that free online helicopter game? Anyway, we'll try...
Those rocks that litter stages? Chris Patterson: The world's most consistent goal kicker (Four misses in three years says it all) and always solid in defence.
Tim Visser is the 'copter itself, last years' top try scorer, so he knows how to build up a good score.
Look, we tried, alright?
Leinster- Grand Theft Auto IV
Highly successful, mostly down to its massively open game style, although a touch of light controversy has always helped.
We really want to make either a ‘Hooker’ or ‘Jonny Sexton’ joke, but we’re above that. So it’s Brian O’Driscoll who gets that spot in the line-up. He gives you everything you want, and more, but as the world’s best, he’s pretty expensive...
Jamie Heaslip is the other star of the Leinster show. The huge No. 8 can be compared to, erm, any vehicle you get to drive in GTAIV- (We’d pick one, but we’re not sure which the ever-variable Heaslip is most like.) He’ll just run you over, and is very quick for his size.
Glasgow Warriors- Luigi’s Mansion
They’ve lost the usual stars of the show, but are determined to show they’re still just as tough and competitive as ever.
The fleeing Dan Parks is similar to Luigi in many ways: Long an outcast, although he’s now got his moment in the spotlight, but he’s decided to run away to Cardiff Blues. Can the Warriors survive without their star Fly-Half?
The Killer Bs? That’s Boos all over. The Scotland back-row lit up both the Magners League and Six Nations last season, but without the influence of Kelly Brown (Now of Saracens) can they stick together and still be strong?
