5 players praised by Alun Wyn Jones in his new book

#4. Owen Farrell (England)

  • Born September 24, 1991, Billinge
  • Major teams British and Irish Lions, Saracens, England
  • Caps 99
  • Position Fly-half

Jones wrote: ‘The character, the attitude. You could imagine being a kid of Owen’s age when his Dad was playing, looking around at Wigan dressing room, at the men in there, how they went about their lives. Owen was very vocal in training from the start. And I never mind having a bollocking from an outside-half, particularly when they’re right. I’d rather know than not know, when I can improve and it’s context.’
