Named or Shamed

Postby Oldschool » June 1st, 2016, 11:10 am

Slow time of the season but did you ever wonder about some of the non de plumes by posters or even the origins of some of our players.
For example.
Devin Toner - Fairly sure that's a viking name.
McGrath - Kind of Obvious.
Best - No idea.
Peg Leg - Of Cornish pirate extract perhaps.
Hugonaut - Seems obvious it has French or Greek connotations
Roboprop - Perhaps the future is in robotics and not genetics.
Feel free to add your thoughts.
Joe Schmidt - ah now adolf - only joking.
For the pedants - I know it's nom.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall who's the greatest player of them all? It is Drico your majesty.
