just wondering, out of this small selection, who you lot think the best second rower is
LOL at Brent Cockbain being in that list.
Are we talking just the best second row, or the best player who played in the second row?
Johnson was an immense player, but I wouldn't have said he was technically as good a second row player as Eales. Probably have to go for either him or Mcbride from that list.
hahaha brent cockbain!!
I went for McBride. Monster of a player, he was.
i also went for mcbride!
Colin Meads and Frik du Preez are worth a mention, I'd go for Johnson, closely followed by Meads and Eales.
The people who don't vote Eales should be ashamed.
The likes of Mcbride, Johnson and Meads are hardly ones to write off.
I am going for Danny Grewcock
We all know he is the greatest!!!
Since Colin Meads & Frik Du Preez are not on the list, then I vote for Abdelatif Benazzi.
I voted for eales, but paul o'connell might deserve to be up there.
I think if there could be alot more suggestions then i can make a bigger and better one soon
McBride and Meads, that would have been some second row alright
why is meads not on that list?
Suggested additions: Colin Meads(NZ), Frik Du Preez(SA), Olivier Merle(Fra) and Gordon Brown(Scot). Certainly all 4 of those should be ahead of Cockbain. Best ever? Pick one of McBride, Meads or Du Preez from the amateur ear, and Eales and Johnson (possibly Ian Jones as a 3rd option) from the modern era.
ok thanks for the suggestions ill make a new one shortly
is there anybody else who has been forgotten?
any great welsh second rowers? from amateur or moden era?
Nah, you look at our legends: -
And most of them are backs, we've got a few great back rowers as well
Should i add the new ones to the existing ones and take out cockbain?? or in the new one replace some people?
Separate names with a comma.
