20 of the best nicknames in Rugby: Briefcase, Rikishi and the Sheriff

6. IAIN HENDERSON (THE LLAMA)

Given his nickname by former Ireland lock Donncha O’Callaghan after first clasping eyes on the bearded Ulsterman at a training camp tucking into a bowl of cereal at breakfast.

7. JAMES HASKELL (ALWAYS MORE)

The England flanker earned his nickname while playing for Stade Francais in 2009 because of his hunger for more training as well as baguettes and espressos during his stay in Paris.

8. TOMMY SEYMOUR (STERN)

“My nickname is Stern because they say I’m always grumpy,” says the Scotland wing.

9. JONATHAN DAVIES (FOX)

With his parents having run the Fox & Hounds pub in Bancyfelin, Wales centre Jonathan Davies was destined to be known as Fox. Inevitably, his younger brother James is the Cub!

10. JONATHAN JOSEPH (E.T FINGERS)

Got his nickname while playing for the London Irish youth team because of his ability to grip the rugby ball one-handed during the game.
