1 Soane Tonga’uiha

Part of a magnificent Saints front row that gave us a platform. Huge scrummager who ensured our pack never went into reverse.

2 Dylan Hartley

Leadership qualities he brings for Saints and England are second to none and his set-piece stats are right up there. Nails his lineouts and very good in the scrum.

3 Brian Mujati

Played with and against him and he was at Saints when our pack was a force to be reckoned with. Great character who did a mean home brew!

4 Courtney Lawes

‘Mr Northampton’ is so dominant in the contact area and tackling is phenomenal. Laid-back, but an animal on the pitch.

5 Samu Manoa

Partnered with Courtney, this pair would dominate the opposition. Unknown when he came to Saints but was so explosive and had fantastic athletic ability.
