England’s rugby team played their joker on Saturday night. The unsuspecting French failed to notice the competitive advantage attached to Josh Lewsey’s top lip and chin before it was too late. The winger bounded over the line within the first few seconds of play to score the opening try – thanks in no small part to the blond goatee attached to his face.

It’s no conincidence that Lewsey’s five points also happened to be the winning margin.

The final against South Africa could again be decided by facial hair. Boks forward Victor Matfield has been sporting a fine chin of roughage throughout the tournament, and with Lewsey out of the England squad, it may well be the decisive whisker.
