World Cup-winning Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus has taken to Twitter to share his love for one of rugby’s most popular youtubers.
Squidge Rugby, who has amassed 126k subscribers, has quickly gained a reputation for his fresh insight into a sport that often takes itself too seriously.
Although his content is funny, it also always remains insightful and well-informed.
Erasmus tweeted following his latest video: “Credit to this man! He understand the game and very very funny!!!”
Instead of playing, Squidge (AKA Robbie Owen) watches rugby almost obsessively, often watching nine or ten games in a single weekend – more during international windows.
A Patreon account has helped with money after he quit his job and it looks like this career is tailormade for a man of Owen’s background.
What happened next? Sir Clive Woodward’s first five debutants
1. Matt Perry
Total caps: 36
He proudly won 36 caps for England, three for the Lions in Australia in 2001, and made an eye watering 221 appearances scoring 561 points for Bath Rugby between 1995 and his enforced retirement in 2007, at that point the Club’s longest serving player.
