Sam Warburton includes Jonny Wilkinson in his all-time XV

Sam Warburton has selected the ‘best international team he’s faced’ XV.

The former Welsh backrow – who retired last year – named the team in his new autobiography – Open Side.

However, there was no room for two of New Zealand’s all-time greats, Dan Carter or Richie McCaw, who have to make do with a place on the bench.

Sam Warburton’s best international team he’s faced:

Fullback: Israel Folau (Australia)

Winger: Bryan Habana (South Africa)

Centre: Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland)

Centre: Ma’a Nonu (New Zealand)

Winger: Julian Savea (New Zealand)

Fly-half: Jonny Wilkinson (England)

Scrum-half: Will Genia (Australia)
