lewis for sportsman of the year ? yes or no ?

It's all down to your personal hero, or preferred sport.

My vote will be going to some woman who can train a horse to trot around coloured poles ;-)

Lewis probably had this honour guaranteed several months ago - I'm sure that the GBP decided the outcome in the first few weeks of his start in F1.

The England rugby team is likely to land the Team of the Year award.

Remember, you read it here first...:-)

I suppose as Quickbeam says,depends on your personel preference,who has done the most for British sport over the last year?

I think it should go to the Leicester City Manager. click here

.....both the Enland rugby team and Lewis Hamilton. Why back losers?

Your contemptuous dismissal of two fine sporting achievements is sad.

Hamilton would almost certainly have won the F1 drivers' championship in his very first year (a feat that would normally be regarded as virtually impossible) if his engine hadn't suffered a misfire for about 30 seconds.

It dropped him down to 18th place, but he still finished seventh.

Stuartli well said.

And let's not forget that England looked like the only side who wanted to score a try.
SA went for the kicking game which to many gives the moral victory to the attacking team, namely England.

This is the same model that teams like ManU, Arsenal and West Ham try for.
Yes, style - win or lose.
