Nigel Owens ranks the SIX best British & Irish players he refereed


Nigel Owens list of the most talented British & Irish rugby players ever would walk into nearly any team from any generation of rugby.

#6. Phil Vickery (England)

Owens said: “I always had a lot of time for him, found him a decent man, a good player to referee. He wasn’t one of those who would whinge at decisions, he would accept the call and get on with it.

“As a player, at his peak with Wasps during their European runs and with England in 2007, he was a formidable force.”

#5. Stuart Hogg (Scotland)

Owens said: “How can you fail to be impressed when watching Hogg play. He’s so exciting as he burst into that line and, of course, is now the Scotland captain.
