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.

Colin Meads and Frik du Preez are worth a mention, I'd go for Johnson, closely followed by Meads and Eales.

Since Colin Meads & Frik Du Preez are not on the list, then I vote for Abdelatif Benazzi.

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.
