WATCH | Bryn Gatland scores last-minute drop-goal to beat Warren’s Chiefs

Scrum-half: MATT DAWSON (83%)

A sniper and an absolute pain for defences, Dawson caused havoc on the 1997 Lions tour when he dummied half of South Africa’s pack and headed for the corner to help seal the first test. Although never the greatest of distributors, Dawson’s competitive edge and ability to spot the gap puts him in ahead of many other contenders.


The most enduring, the most accomplished and, as his ‘Fun Bus’ nickname would suggest, one of the most faithful and inspirational team-mates to have alongside you.

Hooker: BRIAN MOORE (43%)

‘To be or not to be’ was a question answered by this William Shakespeare fan. He played in three World Cups for England and won three Grand Slams, earning World Rugby’s Player of the Year award in 1991.


Prop: PHIL VICKERY (82%)

As one of the hardest hitters in rugby, “Raging Bull” is never far from a Dream XV list. The former captain played every game of the 2003 campaign, coming back from a series of injuries.


The stats themselves – 84 caps for England across a decade, 39 of them as captain, culminating in that World Cup victory, three tours for the British and Irish Lions as well.

Lock: MARO ITOJE (59%)

The 25-year-old would have excelled no matter the time or style of game, be it tight and relentless, a bare-knuckle exchange as often used to be the case, or, as he does now, as an all-purpose player, as at ease in the open spaces as he is doing the grunt work at the coal-face.
