    Some greats up there!

    Possibly I have to many Welshmen there! Possibly Dan Carter could be included at 10!

    especially when Jenkins isn't even the best Welsh outhalf, probably barely in the top 5
  8. 9. Gareth Edwards
    10. Barry John

    11. David Duckham
    12. Mike Gibson
    13. Phillipe Sella
    14. Jonah Lomu
    15. JPR Williams

    Can't be bothered to work out the forwards, but I know I'd have Fergus Slattery at 7.

    Hmm, I`d rather go amateur era team/ pro era team, as the game has changed so much over the past 100-odd years.

    15- JPR Williams/ Christian Cullen
    14-Ray Mordt/Jeff Wilson
    13-Danie Gerber/Tana Umanga
    12- Andre Boniface/Tim Horan- so no place for Mike Gibson and Phillipe Sella then- damn difficult call this!
    11- JJ Williams/ David Campese
    10- Hugo Porta/Dan Carter- no Mark Ella, Phil Bennett, Barry John- freaking impossible to pick really
    9- Gareth Edwards/Joost vd Westhuizen
    8- Hennie Muller/ Zinzan Brooke- couldn`t find a spot for Buck Shelford
    7- Michael Jones/Ritcie McCaw- and no place for J-P Rives, Michael Pratt etc.
    6- Kel Tremain/Abdel Benazzi
    5- Frik du Preez/John Eales
    4- Colin Meads/Martin Johnson- so no W-J McBride,Gordon Brown- this is really impossible to call
    3-Ken Gray/Patrico Noriega- Charlie Faulkner came pretty close- would`ve been the Pontypridd front row
    2- Bobby Windsor/Sean Fitzpatrick
    1- Graham Price/Os Du Randt- no place for Fran Cotton or Syd Millar
