Not everyone can be a role model for the future generation of sporting stars out there, but perhaps being a role model is the last thing on the mind of an international rugby star the moment he steps onto the pitch.
There are, however, a select few who have really had zero disregard for those watching or indeed for their opponents over the years, and they ought to be singled out for their often reckless and ultimately cold-blooded actions.
These actions have even garnered respect from many onlookers, such has been their complete lack of consideration for those on the receiving end of their unsportsmanlike conduct.
Here is the ultimate rugby shithouse starting XV.
