Former Springbok utility forward Danie Rossouw picks a dream team made up of those he played with and against during his 15-year career.
15 Israel Folau
The ultimate modern-day fullback and one of the best rugby players I have seen.
14 Rupeni Caucaunibuca
His speed and power were unbelievable. He would make magic with the ball.
13 Brian O’Driscoll
You need someone with the X factor and he could create something out of nothing.
12 Aaron Mauger
His ability to read the game and create space was special.
11 Nemani Nadolo
Skills, strength, speed, vision – he has it all. Entertainment at its best.
10 Jonny Wilkinson
The ultimate professional. He was just too good not to pick.
9 Fourie du Preez
The bigger the game, the better he played. The best player I competed with in my career.
8 Duane Vermeulen
When Duane was younger, I thought he was quite average but, boy, did he prove me wrong. Mr Consistency.
7 CJ Stander
A modern-day blindside flank who could poach like an opensider, and he was a great ball-carrier, too.
6 George Smith
One of the best openside flanks with a great skill set.
5 Victor Matfield (c)
The king of the lineout. He would steal lineouts to win you a game. He was an absolute professional and loves the game of rugby.
4 Bakkies Botha
Bakkies was the enforcer every No 4 lock wants to be.
3 Carl Hayman
I would go to war with this man. He had an unbelievable work rate and was as tough as they come.
2 Bismarck du Plessis
A great scrummager and ball-carrier who acts like an extra loose forward.
1 Andrew Sheridan
He was an English gentleman off the field, but he had no mercy for the opposition tighthead on it.
