“Wilkinson over Carter” – Sonny Bill Williams ranks his top 5 rugby players

Sonny Bill Williams has surely made a mistake with picking his greatest ever rugby players.

The New Zealand legend was asked by Australian website Sporting News to list the best players he played alongside or against in a dream team .

Incredibly, Williams couldn’t find a place for former team-mates Dan Carter and Richie McCaw, who played a combined 260 test matches for the All Blacks.
