England legend Neil Back picked his all-time dream team for The Rugby Paper, featuring Jonah Lomu, Martin Johnson, and Joel Stransky (but there’s no room for Lawrence Dallaglio and Jonny Wilkinson).
- 15. Jason Robinson – “Billy the Wizz proved if you’re good enough you’re big enough with his acceleration, twirling feet and match-winning mentality.”
- 14. Alesana Tuilagi – “An incredibly strong player who used his blend of pace and power to good effect. A nightmare for any defence.”
- 11. Jonah Lomu – “The first true global rugby superstar. “
- 13. Brian O’Driscoll – “Pace, great feet and fearless, but above all humble as best demonstrated in his non-selection for the final Test for the Lions in 2013.”
- 12. Scott Gibbs – “Solid and powerful gain line winner but with good distribution skills.”
