Stephen Jones Selects Laughable ‘Greatest XV Of All-Time’


Outspoke Welsh journalist Stephen Jones has had a go at selecting his greatest XV of all-time from from players he has seen either live or on television, and boy it’s a strange selection.

Speaking on the Times’ Ruck Podcast, the Welshman has baffled a lot of people with his selection. Firstly he has gone with more Welshmen and more Argentinians than All Blacks with the likes of Dan Lydiate and Juan Martin Hernandez making his XV.

Not one Irishman makes his team, yet he has included the likes of 5-times capped Springbok Garry Pagel. Have a look below. A truly bizarre selection altogether.
