That famed England back row. You know the one I mean.



Nothing quite came close to it - the carrying ability of Sanderson, the nous of Lewis Moody, the great hands and pace of Martin Corry 8)

Any of the England centre combinations from about 2004 until 2010. Pretty much any combination including the silky passing of Tindall, the offloading game of Hipkiss, the outside break of Noon, the defense of Tait, the game management of Hape, the handling of Erinle...

I can't go on as tears of sadness are likely to damage my keyboard.

Speaking of front rows, back in the day, this piece by Eddie Butler is worth a read.
