Fans Pick England’s All-Time Greatest XV And The Results Are Controversial


  • Lock: MARTIN JOHNSON (98%) – 84 caps for England across a decade, 39 of them as captain, culminating in that World Cup victory, three tours for the British and Irish Lions as well
  • Lock: MARO ITOJE (59%) – He would have excelled no matter the time or style of game, be it tight and relentless, a bare-knuckle exchange as often used to be the case, or, as he does now, as an all-purpose player, as at ease in the open spaces as he is doing the grunt work at the coal-face


  • Flanker: RICHARD HILL (85%) – The flanker was “first on the team-sheet,” according to Johnson and Sir Clive Woodward
  • Flanker: NEIL BACK (56%) – A genuine openside and a genius at the breakdown, Back added an extra dimension to the England side that is so sorely lacking from them now
  • Number 8:  LAWRENCE DALLAGLIO (70%) – Dallaglio has always been a singular figure, one never daunted by any situation which is why he was such a long-standing captain with Wasps
