My pic is probably manu tualagi. Here I am pictured with him. It's.not to chose someone who played for your local team for years. He was a an absolute unit , ridiculously fast and when we went to see him he would always score. Always called up for England.

My vote is Mike Tindall! At the age of 18, he joined Bath's team, after the 1999 Rugby World Cup he played both club and country level, at which time in 2000 he made his first appearance in England's team against Ireland.

He is a true English "hero" story in my opinion, going from strength to strength, with minimal scandals and so on, eventually marrying into the Royal Family! He is also heavily into his charity work as well and this marks him even higher in my respect pool as well.

It has to be my boi Jonny Wilkinson.

The only rugby or rugger I played was back in junior high where I was in bottom set so it was just running around having fun with the ball against all the nerds and unfit kids. But I still grasped the rules of the game and could enjoy watching a game of rugby if it was on.

In 2003 England made it to the Rugby union world cup against Australia. I was a wee cub scout on one of our camping trips but because this was such a pivotal event we cleared out the activities hall, lined up seats and the scout leader wheeled out the big screen for us to watch it.

It was a great game but we all cheered when JW was able to perform his legendary kicks. And just like a movie he pulled off a spectacular drop goal winning the cup in the final score 20-17.

My pick is the big kiwi, big Jonah Lomu! The guy was an absolute unit! I Remeber watching rugby as a kid and he was the one we were all excited to see as there was a high chance he would steamroller over someone which was usually a sight to behold! He just seems to be bigger, stronger and faster than anyone else on the field! One he got the ball and put on the gas it felt like a guaranteed try as he just couldn’t be stopped, well that’s what it felt like as a kid watching this huge dude plough through the opposition lol I’m also sure he had a video game named after him at one point! Anyways what a legend!

I'd have to choose Dan Carter. The man epitomises the perfect fly half. He's one of the most decorated number 10s to ever play the game and I believe is still the all-time highest total points scorer in the game.

He was incredible kicking out of hand or off the tee and his ability to dictate the tempo and style of play in a game put the Kiwis in the driving seat for many a year.

Excellent passing capabilities and tactically astute, he has contributed so much at an individual level for New Zealand, but also at a team level, nothing up 2 RWC wins during his careerm

I personally don't think there's ever been another like him.
