“Couldn’t tackle a crossword” – Fans Pick The Most Over-Hyped XV Of All-Time

Fans have been picking their most ‘overrated’ rugby players of all-time on Reddit.

It’s worth pointing out that we have no disrespect to the players we’ve controversially included in this XV – but fans feel they’re given too much praise at times.

These players will have been selected for a handful of different reasons – some of them will perhaps not be justifying the big money spent on them, others may be getting too much hype from the media.

Check out the full selection below.

Back-Three:

  • 15. Johan Goosen (South Africa) – “He was supposed to be the next big thing for Springbok rugby, and now he’s barely remembered.”
  • 14. George North (Wales) – “is the most overrated player of this generation, when was the last time he had a good game that wasn’t against Italy.”
  • 11. Chris Ashton (England) – ” That man lived off his ‘solo’ try against Australia and managed to get in the England team every time. He couldn’t tackle a crossword! Lacks creativity and only works running a line of a short pass from number ten. Overrated definitely!”

Centres:

  • 13. Kurtley Beale (Australia) – “He spends all game looking for line breaks, which will work some days and destroys our backline chemistry on others. He needs to learn how to play with others.”
  • 12. Gavin Henson (Wales) – “one kick and one big tackle and everyone thought he was the bees knees for the next few years”
