Fans pick rugby’s most underrated and overrated players of all-time

#2. George North

“He had a few good years between 2011-2013 and then he has died down. Hasn’t looked good as the commentary teams make him out to be.”

“A Welshman here, but it’s George North”

“is the most overrated player of this generation, when was the last time he had a good game that wasn’t against Italy.”


#1. Sergio Parisse (Italy)

“Going to be controversial but Sergio Parisse. Sure he had fantastic skills but he was a show pony and not a work horse and people often overlooked this. He looked fantastic for Italy but that was because he was allowed to do all the flashy stuff but was mediocre in other areas.”

“I think Parisse got a lot of credit just for being a leader and a quality player in a poor Italy side and was never rated by anyone as anywhere near world class”

“Consistently made world xv teams on scant evidence.”

“Never has a cliche ever fit a player more than overrated show pony for Sergio Parisse”
