Retiring Nigel Owens picks his dream XV of players he refereed


15. Stuart Hogg (Scotland), 14. Bryan Habana (South Africa), 11. Shane Williams (Wales)

Hogg: “How can you fail to be impressed when watching Hogg play. He’s so exciting.”

Williams: “He was in the mould of Gerald Davies in how he left defenders gasping for air as he beat them with those dazzling sidesteps.”

Habana: “Nobody would fancy defending against a back three of Shane, Hogg and Habana, I can tell you that.”


13. Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland), 12. Ma’a Nonu (New Zealand)

Nonu: “He’s another brilliant player and after every game, win or lose, he would come up and give me a hug. Ma’a has always found time at after-match functions or at breakfast if we’ve been staying at the same hotel to come over and have a chat.”

O’Driscoll: “Not only is he one of the greatest centres in the history of rugby union but he’s a fantastic man off the field as well. O’Driscoll has been a wonderful ambassador for the sport and a real leader.”
