Michael Lynagh names his all-time England XV – and there’s no Richard Hill


1. Jason Leonard: “The first Englishman to win 100 international caps. Leonard rode the professional transition and won Grand Slams, a World Cup and a Lions tour. Incredible durability for a front row forward.”

2. Brian Moore: “The gnarly hooker was known as the pitbull. Moore was never afraid of backing out of confrontation and was a great leader.”

3. Jeff Probyn: “A perfect technique allowed Probyn to dominate bigger opposition in the scrum. Probyn set the standard for many props who followed in his path.”
