#5. Lewis Moody (England)

  • Position Back-row
  • Height 6 ft 3 in

  • Caps 71

Moody was known for the enthusiasm with which he plays the game, his willingness to chase down opponents and his ability to compete for possession at restarts, earning him the nickname “Mad Dog” from teammates and supporters.
