Fans Are Just Realizing Owen Farrell’s Name Wasn’t Always Farrell – Page 2 of 3

#4. Peter O’Mahony (Ireland)

A flanker who plays on the edge and never fails to get under the skin of the opposition fans. His late jab at Stuart Hogg and his war of foul words with Kyle Sinckler during the 2019 Six Nations did him no favors. The kind of player you love to have, but he also loves to hate.

Peter O’Mahony Facts:

  1. During his career, O’Mahony has captained Presentation Brothers College, Ireland U18, Ireland U20, Munster, Ireland and the British & Irish Lions.
  2. O’Mahony was born in Cork, where he attended Presentation Brothers College.
  3. The wing captained Ireland at under-18 and under-20 levels


#3. Mike Brown (England)

In his own words, the fullback is a ‘pot player’ with fans either loving him or hating him. A skinhead who enjoys confrontation is not the traditional mold for an England number 15.

Mike Brown Facts:

  1. He has won three Six Nations Championship titles with England and two English Premiership titles with Harlequins.
  2. Having played mostly soccer and a bit of rugby, he initially wanted to play fly-half
  3. Brown was an integral part of the England team that won the RBS Six Nations Championship in 2016 and played every game in Australia’s 3-0 shutout.
  4. Brown married his long-term partner, fashion designer Eliza Scarlett Woodcock, daughter of former England international footballer Tony Woodcock, in the summer of 2016.
  5. He was selected by the general public for the 2014 RBS Six Nations Championship Player Award.
