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.
