‘Marler winked at me’ – Legend Nigel Owens exposes five worst players to referee

Former international referee Nigel Owens has revealed the five most challenging players he encountered in his career.

While recognising that a rugby match is an emotionally heated event, the 50-year-old claims there were several players who would regularly push him to his limit.

#1. Joe Marler (England)

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.”
