"Proper kick in the b-" - Austin Healey slams disloyal George Ford - Ruck

“Proper kick in the b——-” – Austin Healey slams disloyal George Ford

Former England and Leicester star Austin Healey has declared that ‘loyalty in rugby is dead’ following George Ford’s shock move to Sale Sharks.

The 28-year-old, capped by England on 77 occasions, has signed a three-year deal to move to the AJ Bell Stadium.

“We already knew loyalty is dead in professional sport but George Ford’s move to Sale Sharks confirms it,” wrote Healey in his column for the Telegraph.

“I think it is a bizarre move, in all honesty. He has been back at Leicester Tigers since 2017 and, because of his England omission, this is the first season he has spent with the club actually earning his money. And he has marked it by deciding to leave.

“There are obviously family reasons attached to it, but I find it a bit strange that he has opted to move away from a side that has been paying him such high wages for only playing 15 games a season.”

In that light, here are the most disliked English rugby players in the history, in the opinion of other nations diehard supporters.

#5. Brian Moore

Wales Online: “Snarling, punchy and prone to reading extracts from Henry V in the dressing room, Moore represented everything Welsh fans loved to hate about that England team from the mid-90s.”
