Apologies for the dreaded all-time debate, but I was just reading an article online about this subject, and consequently the debate between many of the readers. The four names that kept cropping up time and again on the comments section were Gareth Edwards George Gregan Peter Stringer Joost Van Der Westhuizen I wondered what everybody on here might think on this subject. Admittedly a tough call and bit of a pointless comparison. I don't usually like these sorts of debates, but I was just interested to hear the opinions of proper Rugby enthusiasts rather than the facebook scroller casuals. My personal opinion is that it is virtually impossible to compare players from different generations, as the sport has evolved so much over the years. I would say, though, in general, that the standard now is arguably the highest it has ever been, especially compared with the amateur years. Take any top player from today and he would be able to play at that high level in any era, but I'm not convinced that players from the 60's/70's could mix it up with the top guys today. Discuss.
