Rugby fans rank rugby’s 3 best and 3 worst rugby TV pundits

O’Connell? Healey? Greenwood? We asked you to rate every rugby expert on the box – and here’s what you came up with…

The full ranking will be released in the run-up to the 2020 Autumn Nations Cup.

For now, here is who found themselves at the top and bottom of the table.


3. Sir Ian McGeechan

Technically brilliant with the way he breaks down a half of rugby and gives a fascinating insight into back division moves. What more would you expect from a Lions coaching legend.

2. Will Greenwood

Few pundits can match his sheer enthusiasm for the sport he covers. His pitch-side work with Scott Quinnell during the British & Irish Lions was a joy to behold as the World Cup-winning centre has quickly established himself as RUCK favourite.

1. Paul O’Connell

The BBC pulled off a bit of a coup signing up the former Lions and Ireland skipper when his career came to an end with injury in Cardiff in the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The Beeb bosses got a taste of what they were getting when O’Connell pulled off arguably the greatest answer ever on ‘A Question of Sport’ and like O’Driscoll isn’t afraid to upset his Irish team-mates.
