There are plenty of characters we’ve all become used to on match days, recognise a few of those familiar faces below…

1.Brilliant but lazy fly halves

They’ll turn up ten minutes before a game kicks off hungover as hell, have a c**p game, but with five minutes to go pull of something no other player on the pitch could dream of.

2.The prop who doesn’t want to be there

They didn’t even start out life as a prop but instead filled in as ‘emergency cover’ and now seem to wander round every game looking like they want to be anywhere else.

3.The one who takes it too seriously, all of the time

At the end of the day, everyone loves winning, but is it really necessary to take every little thing quite so seriously?

4.The hard as nails lock

They’re usually half a foot taller than anyone else and made out of stone. Even their own team mates know to tread carefully around them.


5.The skillful big ‘un one

They may not look very athletic, but somehow they have a sublime step on them, and regularly surprise everyone around them.

6.The really rubbish winger who scores every time

They do nothing all game, dropping off tackles as often as they drop the ball yet they end up scoring a try every game.

7.The amazing back rower

They clearly don’t belong on an amateur pitch, yet they seem content to run out with their mates every week instead of playing at the top level.
