Lawrence Dallaglio, eighth World Champion alongside England, put together his top 10 with the best n ° 7 in the history of rugby. First, he chose former All Blacks captain Richie McCaw. In addition, the name of an Argentine stands out within the ranking: Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe.
The former player has rated McCaw as the best in his position ahead of his predecessor, Michael Jones. The pair of kiwis topped the list of the top ten 7 in world rugby.
“You can’t see how someone wouldn’t have it on your team. You just have to look at their numbers: 148 games, 90 percent were victories, and he was in 110 of them as captain,” Dallaglio said.
Lawrence Dallaglio’s Top 10: 1-Richie McCaw (New Zealand), 2-Michael Jones (New Zealand), 3-Peter Winterbottom (England), 4-George Smith (Australia), 5-Neil Back (England), 6-Fergus Slattery (Ireland), 7-Sam Warburton (Wales), 8-Schalk Burger (South Africa), 9-Justin Tipuric (Wales) and 10-Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe (Argentina).
