    15- Matt Perry- Perry now works for a management consultancy company based near Bath.

    14- Daffyd James- In May 2009 he was released by the Scarlets and joined Bridgend Ravens.

    13- Brian O'Driscoll- Guess :p

    12- Rob Henderson- Henderson joined the French side Toulon, then of Pro D2, in 2006, and played three years there, including their promotion to Top 14 in 2008, before returning to the UK to sign for Esher RFC.

    11- Jason Robinson- Head Coach at Sale Sharks

    10- Jonny Wilkinson- Joined Toulon (along with half the Guinness Premiership) in May 09

    5- Danny Grewcock- Danny has recently signed a new 2 year extension to his Bath contract, which will keep him there until the end of the 2009/10 season. His quality performances show no signs of relenting, which many feel deserve him an England recall.

    They should bring out a rugby game where they have every touring Lions squad ever in it. They'd be the only teams in it and would therefore never lose a series? :p

    Ok thats a bit rough, but I'd definitely like to play as that side in a game. Brings back memories of praying that they'd destroy Australia. They very nearly did too.
