Professional rugby players across the world are renowned for their top-tier other halves. Here is a rundown of some stars who have been playing in a different league off the pitch.
Over the years, rugby union has been full of teams and players who have punched above their weight on the pitch.
But plenty of top-flight stars have followed that mantra off the pitch too.
Yes, we’re talking about when they score with a beautiful woman despite not necessarily being blessed in the looks department themselves.
Here are some of the most famous players who were as successful off the field as they have been on it.
#1. Mike Tindall – Zara
There is nowhere else we could start. People were baffled when the World Cup-winning England centre, who at that point had a nose pointing right, started dating royalty in Zara Phillips, the daughter of Anne, Princess Royal. She is 21st in line of succession to the British throne.
Zara, who won BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2006, has three children with the former rugger. If we’re honest, Tindall has aged like a fine wine, but he is definitely still punching above is weight.
