Almost ten years after the end of his career, Sébastien Chabal is obviously still in the minds of British fans…
Star of French rugby at the beginning of the century, Sebastien Chabal remained on the front of the stage thanks to his role as a consultant, on RMC then Canal+. But the former second line has not been forgotten across the Channel either. Evidenced by the result of a broad consultation launched by the specialized site Ruck.
More than a decade after the end of his international career, the native of Drôme is indeed one of the players most hated by British fans. Invited to establish their team of players they hate the most, Internet users have chosen the former Sale player as the third center line, a symbol of these “absolute bastards”.
Sébastien Chabal was not the only Frenchman retained by British fans. On the wing, Yoann Huguet also finds his place in this XV of the most hated players.
Among the players who make up this hateful team, there are also Australian full-back Israel Folau, New Zealand center Tana Umaga, England fly-half Owen Farrell, Welsh scrum-half Mike Phillips or South African second line. Bakkies Botha.
