Lions ‘superfan’ Daniel Craig ranks his three favourite rugby players EVER!

My name is Bond, James Bond.

Obviously the best training for playing James Freaking Bond would be rugby, and so it was for Hoylake RFC’s most famous Old Boy, Daniel Craig.

It also goes a long way towards explaining why Craig’s face looks like it’s absorbed a punch or two in its time.

The 53-year-old regards himself as a British & Irish Lions ‘superfan” attended the tours in 2013 and 2017 while during the 2009 tour in South Africa he sent 12 magnums of Bollinger to the squad after they won the final test.

Craig, who can also often be spotted at Twickenham, has now revealed his three favourite rugby players of all-time during a recent Q&A ahead of the release of his new movie.

No Time to Die is a forthcoming spy film and the twenty-fifth instalment in the James Bond film series produced by Eon Productions. The film features Daniel Craig in his fifth and final outing as the fictional British MI6 agent James Bond.

Here’s who he selected:

3. Jonny Wilkinson (England)

CRAIG SAID: “No player has been so integral to a team as Wilko was to England when they won the World Cup. I’m not saying he carried the team but I doubt they win that tournament without him. He was spectacular.”
