#9. Francois Pienaar (South Africa)

Wilkinson said: “Approaching a World Cup in our own country I think people can understand the pressure on the home team and to think about the pressure on the home captain – think about what this guy must have been going through in South Africa at that time. To see how he dealt with it I think is a lesson to all of us”.


#8. Michael Lynagh (Australia)

#7. John Eales (Australia)

Wilkinson said: “Intelligent, another massive leader, gets himself around the park and brings another angle of goal kicking”.
