The 12 Fails of Christmas: Day 6 – Form is temporary, journalism is, er, absent

We’re halfway through our festive countdown of Andy’s best bits. Today we pay tribute to his interpretation of the word “form”.

He ‘possesses an amazing win record with Wales so it’s him’ in a FORM XV

In an article where it states he was asked to pick ‘based on FORM this season’, Howell put forward some odd reasoning behind some of his selections.

The reasoning behind one selection followed as ‘Ian Evans possesses an amazing win record with Wales so it’s him’.

That summed up Howell in a nutshell, firstly for the especially dim-witted logic to select someone in an XV supposedly ‘based on FORM this season’ on an international record spanning 8 years, secondly for shoddy, lazy claims, as Evans’ record of won 17, lost/draw 16 (including losses to Fiji and Samoa) hardly qualifies as ‘amazing’.
