BACK-ROW:

  • 6. MICHAEL JONES (New Zealand) | Rugby’s original ‘Iceman’. He was an unbelievable player
  • 7. WILLIE OFAHENGAUE (Australia) | A tough player, who never took a backward step. His brute strength took the team forward
  • 8. KIERAN READ (New Zealand) | Silky skills, but his work rate off the ball and hard graft in the trenches make him the best in this position

SECOND-ROW:

  • 4. MARTIN JOHNSON (c) (England) – Few players demanded respect on the field like him. A great leader and my team’s captain
  • 5. IAN JONES (New Zealand) – Pretty smart for a lock forward and one of the greatest lineout exponents of our game

FRONT-ROW:

  • 1. OS DU RANDT (South Africa) – His scrummaging technique would have complemented McKenzie and Lawton well
  • 2. TOM LAWTON (Australia) – Played for the Sharks for a couple of seasons. Had a big frame, but did what was required of him
  • 3. EWEN McKENZIE (Australia)| Solid in the scrums and good all-round player on the park. ‘Mr Reliable’ in his heyday
