“He was a show pony” – Who are the most overrated and underrated rugby players of all-time?

#2. Ben Youngs (England)

“Youngs is dreadful, he’s a poor decision maker, impatient, not an accurate passer and he crumbles under pressure or in any match where his pack isn’t dominating the opposition.”

The 10 funniest things Ben said

“Ben Youngs is the most overrated English scrum half ever and isn’t in the top 4 scrum half’s in England let alone the world.”

“Ben Youngs constantly proves to be our most overrated player”


#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”
