#3. Ali Price (Scotland)

“Underrated is Ali Price, that guy is honestly amazing, and if Dupont didn’t exist, people would be calling him the best scrum half in the Northern Hemisphere”

“How have Glasgow managed to hang on to Price for so long. Seems like someone who should have been offered a big pay day in France/England by now”.

#5. Alun Wyn Jones (Wales)

“Jones only had 60 mins total, but I don’t see what he brought that was so much better than Will Rowlands that the latter had to be dropped.”
