Best of the best.
Former England international David Flatman and former Welsh international Tom Shanklin have had a go at picking their greatest Six Nations XV of the last 20 years to keep us entertained during these uncertain times.
Interestingly not one Scottish or Italian player makes their selection with their team made up of three Irishmen, three French players, five English players and four Welshmen.
From Ireland, Sean O’Brien, Brian O’Driscoll and Tadhg Furlong are all included with Jonny Wilkinson, Martin Johnson and Jason Robinson among the Englishmen included.
Among the Welsh players is Mike Phillips, Alun Wyn Jones and Shane Williams while French stars Guilhem Guirado, Yannick Jauzion and Aurelien Rougerie are also included.
Check it out below and let us know what you think. Would you make any changes?
