“Punctured my lung” -Dylan Hartley ranks his FIVE toughest opponents

#4. John Smit (South Africa)

One of the great captains of the professional era. Led South Africa a record 83 times in 111 Tests, guiding them to victory at the 2007 World Cup, a series triumph over the Lions in 2009 and two Tri-Nations titles. A teak hard performer in his own right, mainly at hooker, but also at prop.
