Who are the greatest forwards to have played the game? World Cup-winning number 8 Lawrence Dallaglio has picked his incredible pack with just three former England teammates include
Loosehead-prop: JASON LEONARD (England): People might say, ‘ah, Lawrence liked Leonard and put him in his World team’ but how can you get 115 caps, play in three decades, two World Cup finals and not be a pretty extraordinary player?
Hooker: SEAN FITZPATRICK (New Zealand): To do it for as long as he did it, in a country where the scrutiny is intense and every mistakes is seized upon, that takes something special. Defined the role of the modern hooker.
Tighthead-prop: OLO BROWN (New Zealand): When the All Blacks had Dowd, Fitzpatrick and Brown in their front, they only ever went in one direction, forward. Brown was an awesome player, a truly brilliant scrummager.
