I was very lucky to spend a few years playing with him - Bryan Habana names the five players he hated playing against.

Springbok legend and 2007 Rugby World Cup winner Bryan Habana has ranked his five toughest opponents from his incredible rugby career.

#5 Shane Williams (Wales)

Bryan Habana: “Shane is a fantastic player who has given rugby some very exciting moments and it was always a good measuring stick whenever you came up against him. If ever there was direct correlation to the phrase ‘dynamite comes in small packages’, Shane was definitively it. His fleet-footedness, pace and game changing ability made him one of the best and most exciting wings the game has ever seen.”

#3 Bakkies Botha

Bryan Habana: “I was lucky to play with Bakkies for South Africa and in Toulon. However, before that he’d caught me a few times and it was like being hit by a bus. A player who carried his team on and off the field.”

#2 Jonny Wilkinson

#1 Richie McCaw

Bryan Habana: “I think Richie McCaw has changed the way rugby is played. You were always a bit nervous coming up against him, he had that intimidation factor.”
