Jonny Wilkinson picks his all-time, non-English XV including ‘silent assassin’ Richie McCaw

CENTRES:

Outside Centre: Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland) – “The ability to change the game in a second, a heartbeat, with his movement, with his skill, his game reading but also his leadership.”

Inside Centre: Tim Horan (Australia) – “A guy that knew how to win, knew how to play the game. His body language suggested he didn’t really know how to fail or what mistakes were, what under performance was.”


HALFBACKS:

Fly-half: Lynagh, Carter, Larkham, Stransky, Fox – “This is the key position for any World Cup winning team. You need guys that are going to lead and continue to do so right to the final seconds when it gets very, very tough. I can’t just pick one.”

Scrum-half: Gary Armstrong (Scotland) – “The sheer aggression and resilience of the guy, his sheer character meant that anything, any ball that wasn’t good enough to go out to the number ten was never going to go out to the number ten. He would deal with everything himself and that meant control of the game”
