Rugby expert goes through who he feels have been the most influential players in the history of rugby union.
1 David Campese (Australia): The great entertainer and deliverer – 64 tries in 101 Tests proved he wasn't a maverick but the most potent player of his generation.
2 Jonah Lomu (New Zealand): Lomu was unique, a powerful man who was also fast on his feet. It was not his size alone that caused such havoc but his pick-up speed. A wonder of the age.
3 Gareth Edwards (Wales): Edwards stood apart even in a team of such multi-talented individuals as graced the Wales shirt in the late 1960s and early '70s, an athlete and a master of his trade.
4 Martin Johnson (England): The only forward to make the cut, an implacable presence for club and for country – a captain, a rallying point, as well as a ferocious competitor.
5 Brian O'Driscoll (Ireland): He burst on to the scene with real vividness and continued to evolve as his physical powers waned, an asset in attack and defence.
