Fans pick the 3 best and 3 worst England Rugby players of all-time

BEST: #1: Martin Johnson – 30%

A player who led by example and the kind of man you would always want alongside you in the trenches when the chips are down. Would never ask someone to do something he wouldn’t do himself. Captained the Lions on two tours, including the triumphant 1997 trip to South Africa, but he will always be remembered as the man presented with the 2003 World Cup.

DID YOU KNOW? Johnson briefly played American football for the Leicester Panthers as a tight end or defensive end.

WORST: #1: Sam Burgess – 33%

England, who fast-tracked Burgess into their World Cup squad in defiance of logic, Bath and the player himself each shoulder varying degrees of blame for arguably the greatest cross-code flop in history. We’re not saying he was an awful player, but the whole thing was a complete disaster.
