This week's Golden Spatula award goes to Mark Villani. He is feared on rugby pitches the world over. He is loved by women, men and reptiles. Mark Villani is a man’s man and a woman’s dreamboat. The Gauntlet is privileged to have a man of such character write for them. It is also office legend that Villani can spearfish a marlin with his bare hands. Enough said.</p>
