Wilkinson Names His Top 5 Fly-Halves Of All Time, Snubs O’Gara

4. Stephen Larkham (Australia)

While we in England will never tire of Wilkinson’s drop goal in the 2003 World Cup Final, Aussie nostalgia freaks prefer Larkham’s 48-metre effort against South Africa in the 1999 semi-final.

A converted full back whose kicking was supposedly so errant that a triumphant TV ad poked self-mocking fun at it, Larkham celebrated his World Cup success by having laser treatment to correct his dodgy vision. 

Did you know: Larkham was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 2012
