Your Least Favourite Player

Post by Thomas »

Righto.

Who is it?

I've had a few least favourite players over the years. I'd say my top 3 are:

Tom Carter - Waratahs. Gobshite who loved the niggle.

Sean Fitz: Just hated the bloke with a passion when I was young. Something about his face and the arrogance he exuded.

Dane Coles: I've got him pegged as the player most likely to headbutt a ref.

I mean, he was a crazy man but I don't think he is unlikeable.

Arthur Stone - I can't even remember why but I just hated him. Possibly becuase he was selected ahead of Warwick Taylor for the All Blacks for a couple of seasons.

Maybe Owen Farrell at a push, but to be honest I really don't have any massive antipathy for any oppo players, hate them all equally.

I save my hate for rival fans on message boards. fudge you towny.

Boooooooooooooo

(not saying but you work it out)

In saying that, I don't like ANY player who plays/played the cheap and dirty shots (e.g. Lowe)

Suitcase, always seems like a decent bloke, was genuinely awesome in one game against Qld, was pretty good as a mature player when he returned to the squad under Henry. But, he was average when he was the captain and number 1 pick, and there were better blindsides around when he was playing, players who did the visible and the invisible stuff.

I’m going to hop in this little trench I just dug and await the Cantab bombardment.

Shaun Stevenson! :x

Over rated muppet who has the following phrase uttered every time he looks at the ball "he's got X factor". fudge X factor how about not being shit all the time. Oh and George Gregan cos the little plum was to damn good and a halfback and an Aussie.

Geoff Hines in the Waikato team with Stone was one I hated.

He was far from my favourite player on the field, but I have seen him at close quarters off the field, and he seems like a genuinely nice person. My least favourite would be Bakkies Botha. Hypocritical scum.

Didn't mind his old man that much, but he is a thick prick, to Trump proportions.

I'm sensing a pattern here.

I tend to disfavour players who are over-hyped. Currently Farrell would sit atop that particular totem pole (altho I realise he has his detractors here).

I used to dislike TJ Perenara and Nic White but I respect them now.

Most disliked: Israel Folau, self righteous prick.

Hated Miller when Waikato took the shield off Auckland in the 90s.

Owen Finegan for the wallabies
Currently don't think there is anyone but Farrell and Biggar come close

Basically the whole Saracens team. Except for Owen Farrell, I actually really like him. Seems like a good guy.

Yup, the angry man schtick wore very thin very quickly. Every time I saw him down the Stoop he seemed to get into some verbal niggly exchange each time he went into contact no matter how legal or legit said contact was. It was like he was operating under a different rule book that deemed he was not allowed to get tackled.

can't stand the players who start crapping on their own teammates - seen this from Biggar and Sexton.

Probably Bakkies Botha, over rated, not particularly skillful and far too often just a cheap shot merchant.

Why? I have no strong feelings about him at all. He only played NZ a handful of times and I have literally zero memories of him in those matches.

It sounds as if I’ve been rumbled. There is some logic behind my choices.

Mark Carter. A player who peaked as a provincial player but for some reason was hyped into an all black jersey merely by playing for Auckland.

And all English players with the exception of Josh Lewsey (for some reason), Martin Johnson and Wilkinson (despite being unable to pass very well).

Chris Ashton - his games were watchable purely for the possibility he would fling the ball into the stands with that idiotic show boating dive.

Richie McCaw - rocked a show boating "look at me everyone" 80s style flat top with bleached tips and was also a niggley cheater.
