Andrew Elliott Andrew has been a sports journalist for more than 20 years, contributing to the Daily Express, Rugby World, Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, Daily Mirror and The Mail on Sunday. His highlights include covering the 2015 World Cup, numerous Six Nations and autumn internationals and being told to 'F*** off' by New Zealand's World Cup-winning coach Steve Hansen after asking a question he didn't like in a press conference.   Andrew had a (very) brief, (very) amateur and (very) undistinguished rugby career playing for the Vale of Lune, Jesmond Jaguars, Old Emanuel RFC and a Rugby Writers XV who recorded a memorable victory over a Houses of Parliament XV. Through the mists of time, he can still occasionally recollect playing with or against (or getting punished by) Steve Borthwick, Iain Balshaw, Phil Christophers and Erik Lund.   He has ghost-written newspaper columns for former England stars Jonny Wilkinson, Ben Cohen and Charlie Hodgson.
