Retiring Nigel Owens picks his dream XV of players he refereed

BACK-ROW:

6. Thierry Dusautoir (France), 7. Richie McCaw (New Zealand), 8. Sergio Parisse (Italy)

Dusautoir: “He was right up there as one of the best captains I have refereed and we greatly respected one another.”

McCaw: “If anybody had to pick the greatest player in history, it would surely be a difficult choice between him and Gareth Edwards.”

Parisse: “I’ve been fortunate to have refereed some tremendous No.8s during my career but Sergio is tops. He’s such a talented player and rarely has a bad game.”
