Best of the best.
BBC have named their rugby XV of the decade with not a single Irish player managing to make the cut in either of their selections.
The broadcaster has named one team selected by the Rugby Union Weekly podcast which is hosted by former England internationals Ugo Monye and Danny Care as well as Chris Jones, and another selected by fans with over 65,000 people voting.
Both teams are understandably dominated by All Blacks with the likes of Beauden Barrett, Dan Carter, Julian Savesa and Dane Coles earning selection for both teams.
Nine of BBC sport users’ starting XV are New Zealand players, with Richie McCaw chosen in 93% of teams, Beauden Barrett 77%, Julian Savea 75% and Dan Carter 74%.
Check out both teams below.
