Nigel Owens ranks the five toughest players he had to referee

Legendary rugby referee Nigel Owens has ranked some of the trickier players he had to run the rule over down the years.

4 & 5. Peter Stringer & Ronan O’Gara

“Definitely! ROG and (Peter) Stringer, oh, when you had to referee the two of them together. I always got on well with the both of them though. I have a huge amount of respect for them, but they made my days hard on occasions. They were lippy in a respectful way.”
