Rugby is surely one of the most popular sports in the world that millions of people watch on their sets and if you got a TV Aerial Installation Cardiff company located on sites including https://www.onevisionltd.co.uk/tv-aerial-installation-cardiff to install your aerial for you then you could watch Wales play in the world cup. These players may not be your best and this is likely to cause some debate, but here are some of the best and most well-known rugby players of all time in our opinion. I’m sure everyone in Wales remembers watching the game where Wales won 29 to Australia’s 25.
This former player is thought to be one of the best flankers in the history of the game. He led his team, the Auckland Blues to top of the championships both in 1996 and 1997 and achieved 58 caps for the All Blacks. He did hold the world record on his retirement for the scoring of 17 tries in test matches and came in 8th position on a Telegraph poll of the top 50 rugby players of all time.
The former England player is considered one of the best locks in rugby history. He captained the England team to World Cup glory in 2003 and is the only player to have captained the British and Irish Lions on separate tours. His club, the Leicester Tigers won the league 6 times and he earned 84 caps for England. He has since managed the England team between 2008 and 2011. In 2011 he led the team to Six Nations victory before resigning after the World Cup of that year.
One of the best fly-halves in the game, this former New Zealand player currently works as the head coach of the Eastern Province Kings rugby union team in South Africa. He earned 35 caps and 2901 points for the All Blacks and also played for the Auckland Blues. He was player of the year in the 2005-06 season and included in the Guinness Premiership Awards Dream Team of 2006.
The late, great Jonah Lomu is seen as the first true superstar of rugby union. He became the face of the game and raised its profile considerably. He earned 63 caps for the All Blacks between 1994 and 2002 whilst playing domestically for the Auckland Blues, the Hurricanes and the Chiefs. He is the all-time top try scorer with 15 but sadly never won a World Cup. He was added to the International Rugby Hall of Fame in 2007 and into the IRB Hall of Fame in 2011.
One of the greatest wingers and fullbacks of rugby history, he was infamous for his kick movement known as the ‘goose-step’. This move was perfect for avoiding being tackled by the opposition. He earned 101 caps for Australia scoring 135 points. He also played for New South Wales. He was voted as player of the tournament during the 1991 World Cup.
Gareth Edwards has been hailed as the greatest player ever to wear a Welsh shirt! Between 1968 and 1978 he played 53 matches for his national team, scoring 88 points. 12 seasons of his career were spent at Cardiff RFC where he scored 69 tries in almost 200 games. In the Rugby World magazine of 2003, he was voted the best player of all-time. He received the title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire during the 2007 New Year’s Honours list for his amazing contribution to international rugby.
