All time best. Who agrees?

Recommended Posts

I don’t. Frik du Preez on the flank is a bizarre choice. There are a number of others I don’t agree with.

I'd hate to be the person that chooses the best 15 OAT, but I don't agree with a few of those choices.

Gareth Edwards was fantastic the few times I saw him play, but somebody like Justin Marschall, Joost vd Westhuizen or Faf de Klerk can't be far off. Nowadays the laws protect the scrummie far more than in GE's days, so GE is a very good choice.

Locks can also be lifted now so comparing modern locks to say Frik isn't really fair. I'd play Frik anyday under the old rules.

Sean Fitzpatrick will never make my line up.

Even without lifting Frik would struggle. He was only 6’2”.

I would also have JPR at full back.

JPR is a great choice.

The problem is you forget some players. Another problem is choosing combinations like Gareth Edwards and Phil Bennett, so the best individuals might not make the best team.
