If Mystery man can have a post about his favourite rugby player, then i can as well. In fact,  have two.
Gavin Henson
Gavin Henson is the starting Second-Five (no.12) For Wales. He is probably most recognised for his epic performance in the 2005 Six Nations against England, in which he anialated Matthew Tait twice, and kicked the winning Penalty goal from the sideline 40 metres out. (Wales won 11-9 securing a grand slam season). He played as the fullback (no. 15) for arguably the best Welsh provincial side, Neath-Swansea. Neath-Swansea Then changed their name to Osprey's, where he plays along side other well recognised Welsh rugby players like Shane Williams and James Hook. He has just come out of Injury to play against France, where Wales, sadly, lost.
Conrad Smith
Conrad Smith is now the first choice Centre for the All Blacks, since Tana Umaga has left us. He has a great eye for space, and is one of the All Blacks key playmakers. He is the reason our wingers have scored the amount of tries they have. He Bareley ever misses a tackle, and all he lacks is a bit of pace. He plays for the Super team "Hurricanes" and plays provincial rugby for wellington. He has accomplished a rare feat, capping 38 games with 55 points for the All Blacks, as well as capping 38 games and 55 points for Wellington.


  1. You obviously don't like them as much as i love Tait as you have two which means you can't choose but i singled out Tait straight away

    PS: the pic above doesn't look like Tait at all

  2. he was 18
    his debut i think

    If i could single out one it'd be gavin henson, i just put in a guy from new zealand, cos some people might find it a bit suspicious for me to have a welsh guy as my fave player.

  3. update
    Wales are the world IRB sevens Champs!
