Top 20: The highest-capped internationals who never scored a try

Which international player has won the most international caps without scoring a try? We attempt to answer the question!

Here are the top 20 highest-capped internationals who never scored a try:


20. JULIAN WHITE (England) – 51

During his nine years in the England front-row the Leicester Tigers legendary tighthead was renowned for his destructive scrummaging and steely edge. Also appeared four times for the Lions in 2005…didn’t score for them either

19. HUW BENNETT (Wales) – 51 caps

The former Ospreys hooker has played in some of Wales’ golden seasons including their 2008 Grand Slam winning campaign and the 2011 World Cup rollercoaster ride, yet the man, who was forced to retire from the game after an Achilles tendon injury against Scotland in the 2012 Six Nations, never registered a try.

18. DUNCAN JONES (Wales) – 57 caps

Formed one half of one of the most recognisable ble prop combos in Test match rugby when packing down with his fellow Neath and Ospreys ‘hair-bear’ Adam Jones. Howeverm unlike Jones, he never crossed the whitewash.

17. GRAHAM ROWNTREE (England) – 57 caps

Was England forwards guru under Stuart Lancaster, but lost his job when Eddie Jones took over the Red Rose reins. Like White, Leicester front-rower Rowntree also went with the 2005 Lions winning three caps.

16. Joe Marler (England) – 58

The England prop, who toured with the British & Irish Lions in New Zealand, is the newest member of the list after winning his 51st cap during the 2017 Six Nations. Still searching for that first try though…
