John Afoa Picks His Dream XV Of Former Teammates And Opponents

John Afoa has named his best XV of former teammates for The Rugby Paper and it’s incredible.

1 Mako Vunipola

“Scrummaging has improved and the stuff he does around the field ticks all the boxes. Passing, tackling, running and the metres he makes are off the charts.”

2 Keven Mealamu

“Tough hooker who played the game hard.”

3 Adam Jones

“Far more skilful player than people gave him credit for. Great scrummager who could also play first receiver.”

4 Johann Muller

“This guy was a superstar during my time at Ulster. Did the basics really well and was the glue who held our side together when it got tough.”

5 Ali Williams

“Not the biggest lock but when I think of Ali he was a bit of a wild child who backed himself to do anything, even the kicking. Great character with loads of skills.”
