LIST: Six of the best rugby players from Holland
Tim Visser is still dazzling Twickenham Stoop, but who are the greatest rugby players from Holland to make their mark in rugby? Steven Smith counts them down.
1. Tim Visser – Harlequins and Scotland winger
Born in Zeewolde, Netherlands, the winger was the first Dutch rugby player to play professionally.
He joined the Newcastle Falcons Academy as a teenager in 2007, after having been spotted playing in the Amsterdam Sevens before later joining Edinburgh 2010.
Five years later Visser joined Quins and scored another nine tries f last season, including the memorable winning try as the Club beat Saracens at The Stoop.
