Sonny Bill Williams dream team: The All Black makes two glaring omissions

5. Jonny Wilkinson (England)

97 Tests, 1246 points and a World Cup for England

“I’m lucky enough to say I’ve played with Jonny Wilkinson and have seen the commitment that he had. When I played with him, he was pretty much at the height of his powers, but the way he dedicated himself to his craft was unbelievable and I learnt a lot from him.”


6. Kieran Foran (New Zealand) 

20 Tests for the Kiwis and an NRL Premiership with Manly

“I’d definitely throw Kieran Foran in there. My halves would be Kieran Foran and Johnathan Thurston – no doubt. Foran plays like another forward and those are the types of players you want to play with, especially being a forward myself.”


7. Keven Mealamu (New Zealand) 

132 Test caps and two World Cup wins for the All Blacks

“I’d have Kevvy in there not just for what he’s done on the field, but for what he’s done off it. When you’re in that All Blacks environment and you see what he does, he’s such an inspiring person.”
