And now for something completely different. It's Friday, so time for a little fun as today we bring you this video from a recent airing of the gameshow The Weakest Link where they had a very funny rugby players edition.
The show, for those of you who've never seen it, features the feisty host Anne Robinson as she works her way around the contestants, asking them questions that increase in difficulty as the rounds go on. The idea is to get as much money for the team as possible in the allotted time.
At the end of each round, votes are cast to get rid of the weakest player. At the end, the last man standing takes all the money. In this case, the idea was to raise money for a charity of the winner's choice.
The whole show was an hour long and really enjoyable, but for the sake of posting on here, it's been cut down to less than ten minutes and includes just the best bits as the players battle each other, and the host, to see who is the smartest of the group.
There's a few of the bad question and answers included, but also the bits in between where there's quite a lot of banter between Robinson and some of the guys, with one Frenchman in particular taking her fancy. Enjoy.
