“S*** Richie McCaw” – Nigel Owens names rugby’s top five biggest trash talkers

This list is formed from a number of interviews with popular referee Nigel Owens and features current and ex-Rugby players.

#1. Peter O’Mahony

From his legendary outburst at England prop Kyle Sinckler to his more recent verbal assasination of All Blacks captain Sam Cane, the Ireland flanker is one of the games premier sh**talkers. Just on Saturday he was caught on the referee’s microphone saying to Cane: “Who do you think you are? You’re a shit Richie McCaw pal.”

Nigel Owens said: “I’m not saying Peter O’Mahony is a dirty player one bit but he certainly has a bit of history. I remember seeing him square up to Sinckler and thinking I’m glad I haven’t ran into him in a dark alley. You can hear his loud voice bellow from a mile away.”
