Classic Irish trios...

1 John O'Driscoll/Fergus Slattery/Willie Duggan

Triple Lions unit that inspired Triple Crown success in 1982

2 Bill McKay/Jim McCarthy/Des O'Brien

The fabled trio of 1948 Grand Slam fame, Jack Kyle was among their most ardent admirers

3 Phil Matthews/Nigel Carr/ Brian Spillane

Hard, fast and loose, Ireland's 1985 Triple Crown back-row was the epitome of Mick Doyle's 'give it a lash' policy

AND ONE FROM WALES . . .

Dai Morris/John Taylor/Mervyn Davies

Legendary combination from the late 1960s and early 1970s, the best in the world at the time
