For as long as rugby has existed, there's been banter between the backs and forwards about who is the smartest bunch. Thanks to this new feature called Piggies vs Princesses, we'll now find out.
While the backs have traditionally been the small, fast, pretty boys, it's the big guys up front who tend to come across as the slightly 'slower' breed.
Unlike a few other things in life though, when it comes to brains, size doesn't mean a thing. The big lumbering ox's can often mix it up with the best of the well manicured, sparkling clean backs.
On this edition of this great new feature, we see the tallest man in Australian rugby, Chris Thomson, up against fellow Waratah and scrumhalf, Josh Holmes.
From trivia to rock climbing, these two go head to head to see who is in fact, the smarter of the two groups. Let us know what you think, and we'll try bring you other clips like this in the future.
