10 sets of players you never knew were team-mates

Rugby Union has provided some curious crossovers over the years – including two goalkeepers now considered among the top 10 in the world…

1. International legends Michael Lynagh and Francois Pienaar formed a 9/10 partnership for Saracens in 1997/98.

2. Pat Lam and Jonny Wilkinson were crucial parts of Newcastle winning the title 

3. Tendai Mtawarira and Andy Goode shared a dressing room for the Sharks in 2010

4. Sergio Parisse and George Smith teamed up during the Wallabies short stint at Stade Francais
