Scotland wing Duhan van der Merwe is out of the rest of this season’s Guinness Six Nations after receiving a two-match ban for a red card.
The winger was sent off by referee Jack Makepeace for a sideways hand-off which had the effect of planting his forearm and hand into the face of London Irish wing Kyle Rowe in the second half of Saturday’s Premiership match at the Brentford Community Stadium, which Irish won 43-12.

The most overrated rugby players in history have been ranked by fans
- 15. Johan Goosen (South Africa) – “He was supposed to be the next big thing for Springbok rugby, and now he’s barely remembered.”
- 14. George North (Wales) – “is the most overrated player of this generation, when was the last time he had a good game that wasn’t against Italy.”
- 11. Chris Ashton (England) – ” That man lived off his ‘solo’ try against Australia and managed to get in the England team every time. He couldn’t tackle a crossword! Lacks creativity and only works running a line of a short pass from number ten. Overrated definitely!”
