A British rugby website, Ruck.co.uk, organized a poll online from “Best initial XV of all time” where he got close to 200,000 votes. The All blacks were the ones who contributed the most players to the team with seven Names. They follow three South Africans, two from England and one from France, Ireland and Australia.
The conformation gives it a tint of good rugby wherever you look at it. Among the backs are players who were unstoppable with the ball in their hands. Serge white is he fullback who wore the Les Bleus shirt. Accompanying him in the background are two fender piercers, each with their own style, as they were Brian Habana and Jonah Lomu.
For him center court people chose Maá Nonu and Brian O’Driscoll, two players to whom you have to contribute very little to describe them, since throughout their careers and after their retirement they continue to be two role models in the position.
The media couple has to Dan Carter and Jost Van der Westhuizen. Between them there are no less than three World Cups, two for the kiwi and one for the former Springbok. The opening also adds the most points in rugby history with 1598, the result of 29 tries, 293, conversions, 281 penalties and eight drops.
Between the forwards the front line It is made up of English Jason leonard, champion in 2003; the hooker Sean Fitzpatrick, lifted the Webb Ellis Trophy in 1987 with New Zealand, and Owen franks, twice world champion in 2011 and 2015.
The second line has two players who left their mark as Martin Johnson and John Eales. The Englishman was the captain of the only European team to win a World Cup and John Eales was part of an Australian national team that made history with the 1991 and 1999 titles.
Finally, the third line It was left in the hands of two All Blacks and a Springbok. The wings that enjoy the sympathy of the public are Francois Pienaar, who commanded South Africa in 1995, and Richie McCaw, iconic New Zealand captain. The T-shirt 8 was left for Zinzan Brookesynonymous with power, explosion and character during his playing days.
