Does anyone go the hassle of recycling some of the first runnings from the boiled and chilled wort i.e. to remove debris and allow the hop strainer/stopper to take affect (as much the same way you do with sparging). Is there much advantage to doing this? does it aid clarity? or is it something that i don't really have to concern myself with (i'm worried about the dangers of contamination while doing this, plus im naturally lazy ).

Never, way too much trouble. It all drops out in the fermenter or clearing tank anyway.
