Ian Jones and Horwill have put in good spells in the row.

Bruce Reihana would have to be up there with the likes of Goneva, Tagibackibau, Rabeni in terms of tries scored.

A worst XV will be interesting to fill

13.
12. De Wet Barry
11.
10. Botica/Stephen Donald
9. Piri Weepu

Pat Lam scored at least 29 tries which is high for an import forward.

Great shout..... Real lynchpin on those 98-01 Tigers teams that were always depleted due to having so many players on England duty.

There was at least one excellent SA lock at Saints. And Van Heerden at Tigers.

If you're looking for a lock, why not Hargreaves?

Terry Fanolua (Gloucester) for outside centre?

Buck Shelford basically dragged Saints to the top level of English rugby by himself.

If only they could find someone like him today.....

Funnily enough, I suspect Rob Horne will be viewed on a similar level in the long run

Of the current Prem players, I think Sinoti Sinoti and Telusa Veanu have the potential to join the best import XV, and Schalk Burger the potential to join the worst

I thought Elsom did well up north but I haven’t seen him mentioned?

Edit: he went to Ireland didn’t he? My bad.

Whatever happened to Chris Jack anyway? He was supposed to be the next great thing, but Ali Williams seemed to eclipse him and then he seems to have just vanished.

He was utterly phenomenal for Leinster, then he left and just disappeared. I thought he would go back to Aussie and be a great captain but he just dissapeared. What happened to him when he got back? Did he even make the team

He made the Wallabies and he was gash.

He was going to be my suggestion too. From all respects Umaga did a similar thing with Toulon in France - well, after him they spent big but when he was there he reinvigorated the team - and helped increase the gate in all their opponents (in the 2nd dvi I think) home games.

Returning to the OP, I still can't believe that Gopperth suddenly became good.

With due respect to Umaga, Toulon bought quite heavy that year(including George Gregan), so it was hardly a solo mission like Buck .

He's a pretty uninspiring 10 but has played really well at 12 for Wasps.
