6. Richard Hill – Extremely gifted player who had all the ability in the world to play and run the ball. When we needed someone to dig in he was your man. He had the full tool bag and quietly got on with it.
7. Richie McCaw – Played against him a few times for England.We spent our whole week just preparing to play against him, let alone the other guys. I wish I had the chance to play with him.
8. Scott Quinnell – Just a fantastic talent for Wales and the Lions. His ball carrying was excellent, he was uncompromising and had so much passion.
9. Rob Howley – I’d have loved to have played with him more. What he did for Wasps was phenomenal. He took scrum-half play to new levels. His passing ability and understanding of the game was exceptional and he’s now a great coach.
10. Jonny Wilkinson – For a forward it was great to know if we won a penalty in range he’d get you three points. I never got frustrated when he did something wrong because I knew he worked so hard to get it right.
