What funny nicknames or catch phrases for various well known rugby personalities?

Post all here!

Some of mine:

Reuben Thorne: "Captain Invisible" or "The Invisible Man"
Sione Lauaki: "Pudding" (apparently that's a nick for Joe McDonnell too)
Ben Herrings: "Tugboat"


Jerry Collins: "Jerry Smash!!!"
Al Baxter/Matt Dunning/Ben Alexander/Benn Robinson/etc: "MMMM, Grass!"

Beer Bottle is an oldie we used to call him when he played for Central Vikings, Beer Bottle meaning emopty from the neck up, despite being one of the best players he was a bit of a dumbass.

Hehe - funny Smile

Isn't Greg Sommerville called "Yoda"?

I love some of the "serious" nicknames some of the guys have - they just sound so corny!

Isaia Toeava: "Ice"
Conrad Smith: "Snake"

sigh...

2nd Gear for Hosea Gear

Eaton or Takeaway for Jason Eaton

Hikapotamus for Hika Elliot


When I said Lame I meant it, just thought I'd share.
