The five best players I've ever seen play live in no particular order (sorry NH's but I've a SH bias). 1. Christian Cullen - Best ball runner I've ever seen Gease lightening and balanced. 2. Tim Horan - Strong, fast, skillful, awesome defence and try scoring machine. 3. Michael Jones Saw him play live. He was a freak. 10 years ahead of his time 4. Mark Ella - He was the greatest exponent of running rugby. Could make the opposition defence to what ever he wanted them to. He retired before he was 25, he could have been even better. 5. Martin Johnson - I hate England but he was awesome. Big, aggressive intimadating. I don't thinks its a coincedence England have slid down the rankings since he left.
