They may be twice your size, but you definitely wouldn’t feel too intimidated when lining up opposite this ‘Nice Guys’ XV…
Never hear anyone say a bad word about him.
A giant of a man but always seems up for a laugh.
One of modern rugby’s greats both on and off the pitch.
12.Jean de Villiers
A fearsome competitor but always seems like an all round nice guy.
A laugh a minute thanks to the Honey Badger’s one liners.
Possibly the best player of all time, and an all round top bloke.
Always plays with a huge grin on his face.
A huge ball carrier who seems as soft as they come off the pitch.
Comes across as one of the nicest, down to earth players in the game.
Despite being overlooked for Scotland, always remains respectful.
No idea why, but he seems like a gentle giant.
Just about the politest man in world rugby.
Looks more like a teddy bear than a rugby player.
Seems impossible to knock the smile off his face.
Far too nice to be one of the world’s best scrummagers.
