2. Peter Stringer (Ireland)
Making his debut in 2000, Stringer went on to become an Ireland fan favourite, winning 98 caps in the process. He played at the 2003 and 2007 Rugby World Cup’s and was a key figure in the sides that won the Six Nations Triple Crown in 2004, 2006, and 2007.
It remains baffling how Clive Woodward chose not to take him in 2005 when they had four scrum halves in the squad (Dwayne Peel, Chris Cusiter, Gareth Cooper and Matt Dawson).
DID YOU KNOW? On 12 August 2000, Stringer played for the Barbarians against Germany
