Wasps centre to strut his stuff on Countdown

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

By appearing on the programme the Nigerian-born centre has made a stand for misunderstood rugby players everywhere, God bless him!

Erinle is known as the brains of the Wasp's squad and confesses that he wanted to be an astronaut after he left school.

But NASA's loss was rugby's gain and the player was due to play in Wasps Zurich Premiership match against the Sale Sharks on Friday but a toe injury will keep him out of the action. He will now be able to stay at home and watch himself on telly.

Erinle will escape a ribbing from his team mates when he returns to training next week because rumour has it that he put in a storming performance.

We can't give the game away, but the dynamic duo of Carol Vorderman and Richard Whiteley are said to be have been mightily impressed by Erinle's mental dexterity.

Obviously we're not fit to add together the two numbers on the back the centre's shirt, but this is what our wordsmiths came up with for 'Ayoola Erinle':

Tune in to Channel 4 at 15.15 to see how rugby's cerebral crusader got on.
