“The best there has been” – Chris Robshaw picks his five toughest opponents

Harlequins legend Chris Robshaw has named his spectacular dream team of rugby players.

A twice-named Aviva Premiership Player of the Year, Robshaw won 66 England caps and is the second most capped England captain of all time.

Speaking on the Looseheadz Podcast, he selected his dream team from any era of rugby to take on Mars if they invaded the Earth and challenged us to a game of rugby.

Here, Robshaw names his five toughest opponents.

#1. Richie McCaw (New Zealand)

  • Position: Flanker
  • Honours: New Zealand, 148 caps

Lifting the 2011 World Cup in his backyard was a fitting tribute to one of the greatest ever All Blacks, but he went on to secure true legendary status as he continued for four more years, breaking record after record and uniquely hoisting the Webb Ellis trophy for a second time.

Robshaw said: The best flanker there’s been full stop.
