My all-time dream XV: Jonny Wilkinson

Jonny Wilkinson famously won the World Cup for England with a drop goal in 2003, but if he had to pick a non-English Dream Team, who would he choose?
Fullback: Serge Blanco – France

“Serge Blanco typified French rugby at its best with his audacity, ambition and flair. He was most famous for his scintillating counter-attacks, frequently running the ball out of seemingly impossible situations.”

Wing: Christophe Dominici – France

His opportunism, his flair, his game reading, his sheer explosivity to really change a game is something that sticks in my memory”

Outside Centre: Brian O’Driscoll – Ireland

“The ability to change the game in a second, a heartbeat, with his movement, with his skill, his game reading but also his leadership.”

Inside Centre: Tim Horan – Australia

“A guy that knew how to win, knew how to play the game. His body language suggested he didn’t really know how to fail or what mistakes were, what under performance was.”

Wing: Jonah Lomu – New Zealand

“The guy is quite a remarkable rugby legend and deserves to be so. No Rugby World cup team would be complete without him.”
