Too hard to answer. Could be answered if we were talking about different positions
 
so, let do it, best players based on current form.


best props :
best hooker :
best lock in the world : victor matfield.
best flankers :
best no8 :
best scrumhalf :
best flyhalf :
best centres :
best wingers :
best fullback :
 
Great idea ;)

best props :Sheridan
best hooker :Smit
best lock in the world : Matfield.
best flankers : Burger
best no8 : Sharpe
best scrumhalf : Du Preez
best flyhalf :Carter, just ahead of James
best centres :Mortlock
best wingers : Habana

No such thing. Would be an entirely pointless debate. [/b]

Yes thats true, the different decades and the different eras had produced some fine as (rugby ability wise!) rugby players!
 
All the players around now are conditioned pros with conditioned pro lifestyle. You can't compare a player like Brian Moore with say, John Smit. Players these days have much more opportunity to develop than in the amateur days.

I think you;d have to have a debate on the best amateur and the best pro.
 
here is my full list of players :

best props : sheridan, hayman
best hooker : smit
best lock in the world : matfield, botha
best flankers : burger, mccaw
best no8 : collins
best scrumhalf : du preez
best flyhalf : wilkonson
best centres : o'driscoll, mortlock
best wingers : habana, rockoko
best fullback : latham
 
Jerry Collins is the greatest player on the planet. He'd be an automatic first choice loosie for anyone. He's the real soul in the AB's, not McCaw.

best flankers : Burger, Dussatoir (sp?)

Yes but if you play for the All Blacks rather than France you are always going to show better in the New Zealand team. They play a wider, more constructive game making it far easier for guys like Howlett to score tries. I agree i think Clerc is a great winger, probably 4th behind Habana,Rockoko and Sivivatu.
