Dallaglio ranks the FIVE best back-rowers he faced

Lawrence Dallaglio is undoubtedly one of the greatest back-rowers to grace the game and was almost definitely the most terrifying.

The England flanker had no issues when it came to throwing his body on the line for the cause, his own wellbeing not even entering the equation.

His partnership with Richard Hill and Neil Back could easily go down as the best back-row trio in the history of the sport.

Here, the legendary back-rower ranks his five toughest back-row opponents he faced for club and country.


#1. Michael Jones (New Zealand)

DALLAGLIO SAID: “He had everything. Quick, athletic, skilful, brave, and a great team player. There have been some great No 7s; Winterbottom, Back, George Smith, Richie McCaw but none as good as Jones.”
