The Ultimate List Of Rugby Legends Ranked From ‘GOAT’ To ‘Not All That’

A rugby fan has created the ultimate TierMaker ranking rugby legends from ‘GOAT’ to ‘Not all that’.

Fans have been taking on the tough task of ranking the players who have gifted us iconic moments throughout the years.

Using Wales Online list of the top 50 players of the professional era, players have been split into five separate categories.

The toughest part of this challenge was that all the players must be split into five equal groups of 10, which is sure to court controvercy.

The ‘GOAT’ category is filled with World Cup winners such as Martin Johnson and Richie McCaw.

The players were split into five different categories.

  • GOAT
  • Legend
  • Class
  • Average
  • Overrated
