Fans have been ranking who they consider the dirtiest players in the game over the past decade. In some cases it seems unpopularity saw them picked while other stars have been named and shamed for their thuggish actions on the field.
#5. Owen Farrell (England)
Could it be anybody else to start? Farrell fits the label “our guy” better than most, meaning you love to hate him unless he’s in your squad. Then you’d go to the end’s of the earth to defend him. The England captain, also known as ‘Shoulder boy’ for his high tackling, does himself no favours with his poor tackling technique. The fact he often seems to get away with it doesn’t help either.
