6. Pete Buxton – One of those guys you want in your team even if it means having more chance to get injured by him. He put his body on the line for the shirt. Did all the unseen nasty work brilliantly.
7. Andy Hazell – Another Gloucester legend in this team. Typified what playing for Gloucester meant over the years.
8. Gareth Delve – Great player who has been very unlucky with injuries. Seems to have found a new lease of life in Australia with the Rebels. The nicest guy off the piece but hard as nails on it.
9. Danny Care – Great attacking threat from the base of the ruck with the kicking game to match.
10. Jonny Wilkinson – I earned my first England cap next to him. Will go down as one of the greatest players ever. Very approachable despite his status.
