Rugby World Cup referee’s reveal the ‘toughest’ players to referee

In fairness, dissent in international rugby isn’t as big of a problem compared to something like football. But who are the worst players to manage in rugby history?

On Borthwick: “A difficult question. When I first started refereeing in the Premiership Steve Borthwick was one of the guys who was pretty intimidating.

“He saw that everything was on ‘his terms, whether you like it or not’. He had such presence. I think you learn how to deal with people like that as a ref, but Steve Borthwick, was as tough as they come.”
