What are the greatest one-liners or quotes that have been made on rugby union?
We’ve put together a list of our five favourites. Hope you enjoy the list,
1. Martin Johnson
England were able to survive a defensive scrum on own five metre line against the All Blacks in 2003 despite being down six men due to Neil Back and Lawrence Dallaglio being sin-binned.
What followed was not just one scrum but a sequence of four, and a penalty conceded by England. New Zealand number 8 Rodney So’oialo tapped and ran from short range but was denied and penalised for a double movement. England had resisted the irresistible.
Martin Johnson was asked after game “what went through your head during that scrum?”. He answered “nearly my spine”. Pure class.
