For many years now, our spectating pleasure has been enlivened by identifying the occasional (often only from a certain angle) Poppies lookalike. In fact the habit goes back so far it must be the one and only mini topic that was never worked up into a page long article with a printing deadline looming and several blank sheets still to fill.
In those days we identified the keen resemblance between eg Gary Setchell and a young Andy Flintoff or Chris Pearson and Minder-era Dennis Waterman (giving someone a slap outside the Winchester for a monkey after giving a bird a right seeing to).
Nowadays of course we've moved on from all that and have outgrown such idle games.
Except you can't help but notice that...
Mark Cooper = early Benny Hill (without glasses and flat cap)
Robbie Cooke = gurning Aussie trundler Peter Siddle
Guy Branston = angular headed cyborg Kryten
Dale Watkins = John Malkovich
Wayne Diuk = Matt Damon's runty brother
Lee Harper = Vince Vaughn's swarthy brother
Gary Johnson = Benny the ball from Top Cat
