Former Namibia and Saracens loose forward Jacques Burger selected a team of the best he played with and against for SA Rugby Mag.
15. BEN SMITH – He is safe under the high ball, defends well and has the ability to beat defenders.
14.BRYAN HABANA – Habana was so quick and the ball bounced right for him more often than not. He made game-changing plays.
13.BRIAN O’DRISCOLL – He was so well rounded. Had a great rugby brain and the ability to create magic. Also very good at tackling at breakdowns and was an excellent defender.
12.JONATHAN DAVIES – Jonathan is a big boy and tough to bring down. Always draws in a couple of defenders, which creates lots of space in which to attack, and is strong in defence.
11.RUPENI CAUCAUNIBUCA – A defender’s nightmare. Rupeni had incredible speed and the ability to run around or through the best of defenders. Scored unbelievable tries.
