3 Richie McCaw

Definition of greatness is Richie McCaw. The man isn't human. Has Brian O'Driscoll lead Ireland to two World Cup wins? He couldn't even beat the All Blacks. McCaw has won everything possible to have won... with Canterbury, Crusaders and All Blacks. Enough said.

How the he'll isn't he in the top 3, he's been the best flanker for 11 years!

The greatest rugby player of all time. - markman55

7 Gareth Edwards

So clearly the number one its untrue. I have to assume that most people voting are very young or have lost their memory.

Gareth edwards is a player ahead of his time good ball sinse and a great rugby mind to boot greatest player of all time and the star of the 74 lions best team of all time too.

Skill of this man is unsurpassed could lo mu or odriscoll throw a dummy like Gareth, blistering pace no other player has ever played better heads up rugby union football

15 Danie Gerber

The best centre ever. Period. Just compare his speed, strength, sidestep and forward thinking to any other player ever. Look at the various positions and situations from where he scored. He CREATED tries like no one else. He read the situation. And he finished like no other. Taken into account the few opportunities he had due to isolation and what he achieved nevertheless there can be NO DOUBT that he was the greatest back line player ever to have played the game.

This guy is a legend. The best centre with the most natural talent ever. Campese might have been slightly better (a winger), but if Danie had the opportunity to play in as many tests as Campo, I recon he would have held the record for most test tries scored. I loved watching him play.
