INCREDIBLE | Sir Clive Woodward’s dream team a bit of a surprise

HALFBACKS

 Fly-half: Jonny WIlkinson (England) – Jonny was special and he scared the opposition. Everyone has to pat him on the back. The way he defended and attacked, he was a very special player. All of us involved in that team [in 2003] just felt very lucky and privileged to have had him around at that time.

Scrum-half: Gareth Edwards (Wales) – The greatest talent I played against was Gareth Edwards. He was in his last season and I was in my first. His talent was undiminished and he had a great aura. 


FRONT-ROW

Loosehead-prop: Jason Leonard (England) –  Solid as a rock, was regularly asked to play on both sides of the scrum and never moaned. His record of four World Cups and two finals says it all.

Hooker: Sean Fitzpatrick (New Zealand) – He was outstanding, not just as a player but as a captain, and as a man. 

Tighthead-prop: Phil Vickery (England) – He was brilliant. There is a reason I give him the nickname the ‘Raging Bull’.
