    This is arguably more of an out-of-game topic but will be interesting to see people's opinions :)

    I've messed around with Lomu All Stars in the game and turned it into a sort of Legends XV. Kept the big man himself obviously as he more than earns his place but from downloading new players on the fanhub I've made it my own. What would be your "Classic XV"?

    The rules are:

    - To play in the starting XV a player must be retired from playing the game altogether.
    - To be eligible for the bench, a player may or may not be playing club rugby, but must have retired from international duty.
    - All players would be in their prime.
    - No more than 4 players from any one nation in the starting team.

    So to start the ball rolling, here's my Legends XV (All players are already in RC3!):

    1) Jason Leonard
    2) Sean Fitzpatrick
    3) Os du Randt
    4) Martin Johnson
    5) John Eales
    6) Francois Pienaar
    7) Richie McCaw
    8) Sebastien Chabal

    9) Joost van der Westhuizen
    10) Jonny Wilkinson (GK, PK)
    11) Jonah Lomu (C)
    12) Tana Umaga
    13) Brian O'Driscoll
    14) Tim Horan
    15) Serge Blanco

    16) Andrew Hore
    17) Tony Woodcock
    18) John Smit
    19) Paul O'Connell
    20) Jerry Collins
    21) George Gregan
    22) Daniel Carter
    23) Christian Cullen

    Just my opinion :rolleyes: Honorable mentions to Conrad Smith, Fabien Pelous, William Servat, Steve Thompson, Carlos Spencer, Jo Rokocoko, Matt Giteau (had he not come out of international retirement), Bryan Habana, Victor Matfield, Bakkies Botha and more. Hard decisions. :p
