Jonny Wilkinson ranks his THREE best No.10’s – with Carter missing out on top spot

Rugby union has been graced with some legendary fly-halves over the years, and Jonny WIlkinson is certainly one of those.

The legendary fly-half is the second highest points scorer in history with 1,246 in 97 caps.

Wilkinson was also a great allrounder who had an incredible influence on his side, with England winning 67 of the 91 games that they played with him at fly half. He also remains the record points scorer at World Cups, scoring 277 overall.

His stellar moment came in 2003, when his injury time drop goal secured a thrilling World Cup victory for England against Australia.

Below, see who he rated in his top three players of all-time to don the famous No.10 jersey.

#3. Joel Stransky (South Africa)

Fly-half Stransky cemented his place in the hearts and minds of the nation by kicking the drop goal that saw South Africa claim the sport’s biggest prize in 1995.

He also wrote his name in the history books in the opening match of the tournament when he became the first Springbok to score a try, a conversion, a penalty and a drop goal in the same game – a 27-18 win over defending champions, Australia.

Did you know: He is of English and Czech descent and Jewish on his father’s side
