“Overrated show pony” – Fans pick the five most ‘overrated’ rugby players of all-time

#3. Alun Wyn Jones (Wales)

“Maybe he got so many caps as there’s been such a paucity of Welsh second rows. Maybe.”

“At this point he only gets chosen because Wales Online will go nuclear and blow up Cardiff if he doesn’t”

“I really really really don’t understand why he is rated so highly”

“H’es been a great player. But he should have been nowhere near the starting jersey for the Lions in my opinion.”

One fan argue back, saying: “Maybe he’s got 12 lions caps in a row, won numerous 6N championships, been nominated for world player of the year twice 4 years apart, and is the record cap holder in history because he is one of the greatest locks of all time…maybe.

“If there’s one player in world rugby who has caused more people to have egg on their faces after writing him off and downplaying his rugby ability, it’s AWJ.”
