“He’d wink at you” – Nigel Owens ranks the four WORST England players to referee

Nigel Owens was an international referee for 17 years and during that time encountered some challenging England players as he names the five which he never enjoyed officiating.

Here is what the former top referee told The Daily Mail and a Q&A fo Wales Online about the five worst England players he had to deal with in his career.

#4. Joe Marler

Owens said: “He was always a funny one on the field in nice way. You’d be trying to tell him something serious and he’d just want to have a laugh and a joke. He’d wink at you on the middle of a serious telling off.”
