Former Springbok flyhalf Joel Stransky picks a dream team dominated by southern hemisphere superstars.
15 Christian Cullen
He had unbelievable pace and was a devastating counter-attacker.
14 David Campese
Could make the odd horrendous mistake, but was a game-breaker.
13 Danie Gerber
Silky running skills and pace were unadulterated entertainment.
12 Tim Horan
He was a clever player with the physical attributes to execute to perfection. Great reader of the game.
11 Jonah Lomu
He was completely destructive as a ball-carrier and the first real superstar of rugby.
10 Dan Carter
Most complete flyhalf to have played the game. His all-round prowess set him apart.
9 Joost van der Westhuizen
Not the best scrumhalf technically, but an excellent attacker and aggressive defender.
8 Zinzan Brooke
Any No 8 who kicks a drop goal in a World Cup semi-final walks into my team!
7 Richie McCaw
Arguably the greatest player of all time. Peerless leader and dominant presence.
6 Andre Venter
Big, strong man, who performed every dirty job thrust upon him.
5 John Eales
As athletic as any of the locks playing today. Brilliant in the lineout and a leader of men.
4 Martin Johnson
As hard as nails. Had an incredible work ethic and would be the enforcer in my pack.
3 Jason Leonard
Mainly played at loosehead, but as a player and a leader was a huge part of England’s team spirit.
2 Sean Fitzpatrick
My hooker, captain and the referee! A real streetwise player and well respected by everyone.
1 Os du Randt
A great scrummager, real grafter in the tight loose and a great ball-carrier.
