4. Brian O’Driscoll
“Brian is probably the most talented player I’ve ever played against. He is a game winner, pure and simple. If you watch him play, he has touches of class no other players have.
“Like all great players, he reads the game well and if you watch him in midfield, his appreciation of space and ability to manipulate the defenders to create chances is so impressive. He also has an effective kicking game with little grubbers behind the defence and all the flicks and wrapround passes.
“I remember the one that set Simon Zebo up for a try against Wales was just magic. What a wonderful career he had.”
