England and Harlequins scrum-half Danny Care has named ‘five of the best’ players he’s faced or played alongside in an interview with Rugby World.
It’s fair to say, it’s a sensational selection from the playmaker.
1. Nick Evans
“He was incredibly skilful and can read the game so well but whatever position you put him in, he remains calm and almost always picks the right option.
“He’s a very intelligent player and in my opinion, is one of the best overseas players the Premiership has ever seen. One play sums him up. Against Stade Francais in the Heineken Cup we had to win we trucked up the middle for about 30 phases to drop goal.
“After I threw him a terrible pass, he stepped three or four players, then it was recycled and he made another break but held off. On the third occasion he knocked over a truly horrible drop-kick and that’s why they paid him the big bucks.”
