Openside-flanker: David Pocock (Australia)
The Zimbabwe-born flanker, who was capped 83 times over an 11-year period, hung up his boots earlier this year following a stellar career.
BC: “Watching him a lot, he’s probably the person I’ve tried to emulate most. Also not just as a player, I’d love to have been around him as a bloke during his training regime. It always looked intense.”
TC: “An incredible player.”
