RANKED: England’s 5 Worst Individual Performances In World Cup history

Even the best players have bad days – but these performances will definitely have stuck in the mind of even the most forgiving England fan.

From outsiders who came into the team late to legends, nobody is protected in this ranked list.

Here RUCK.co.uk ranks the five worst individual performances by players at Rugby Rugby World Cups.

5. Mike Catt vs New Zealand (1995)

Not the worst performance – but a moment that no rugby fan will ever forget was the sight of Jonah Lomu ploughing over Catt.

He was simply a doormat to the All Black powerhouse as New Zealand went onto win 45-29. Catt was probably just unfortunate that he was the last line of defence on the day Lomu decided to score four tries, hense why we haven’t put him further down the list.

4. Andy Farrell vs South Africa (2007 pool stage)

England may have reached the final in 2007, but the pool stage included an embarrassing 36-0 defeat for the reigning champions against the Springboks.

Picking out one poor individual is a tough ask but we’re going with former Great Britain rugby league captain Andy Farrell. The goalkicker on the day took nothing but kickoffs in a very poor all-around display.

Unfortunately, he never produced the performances for the England union side for which many had hoped, and ultimately he won only eight caps.
