All-Time Greatest Rugby XV

Loosehead Prop: Jason Leonard (England) – The “Fun Bus” epitomized the modern prop; a workhorse in the scrum and relentless in the loose. Leonard amassed a record-breaking 114 caps for England and Lions combined, earning his status as a front-row legend.

Hooker: Sean Fitzpatrick (New Zealand) – A true leader on and off the field, Fitzpatrick’s excellence in the set-piece, coupled with his immense work rate, made him one of the best hookers in history. His 92 tests for the All Blacks remain an inspiration.

Tighthead Prop:

Lock: Martin Johnson (England) – Known for his formidable presence, “Johnno” was a dominant force in the scrum and a fierce competitor. The towering lock captained England to their 2003 World Cup triumph.

Lock: John Eales (Australia) – “Nobody” was a towering figure in the lineout and a master tactician. His composure under pressure earned him the nickname “The Poet.”
