Curious is all, my favourite two are Conrad Smith and Brad Thorn. Especially after hearing Brad Thorn is the fittest and fastest forward in the All Blacks camp after this weeks fitness test. Conrad Smith is just a genius aswell, best outside centre in the world, well, on par with Jaque Fourie. Sorry, lets go with current and past. Don't really have a favourite past player as I only really started to watch rugby these last few years.
