Fly-half: Jonny Wilkinson – ENG
Scrum-half: Gareth Edwards – WAL
Scorer of ‘The greatest try of all time’ in 1973 whilst playing for the Barbarians, Edwards is unquestionably Wales’ greatest ever scrum half. The number nine was named the BBC Welsh Sports Personality of the Year in 1974 and only a year later he received an MBE highlighting how great an impact Edwards made during his career.
Prop: Jason Leonard – ENG
The first Englishman to win 100 international caps. Leonard rode the professional transition and won Grand Slams, a World Cup and a Lions tour. Incredible durability for a front row forward.
Hooker: Brian Moore – ENG
Having since gone on to make a highly successful career for himself in punditry and match analysis, it’s sometimes easy to forget what a presence Brian Moore was in the jersey, not just commenting on others from afar.
Prop: Adam Jones – WAL
He won three Grand Slams during a 100-cap Test career. Jones starred for Neath, then Ospreys, and played a season for Cardiff Blues before joining Harlequins in 2015. He retired last summer following a stellar career.
