Of all ranking lists for positions in rugby union, selecting the six all-time best flankers is the most difficult.
Flankers are the fans' favourites because of the everyman role they perform. They need to be able to tackle like lunatics, be first to the breakdown, provide the link between forwards and backs, and roam the wide spaces with the skills of a three quarter.
They are generally the most noticeable players on the pitch and therefore claim a wide following.
This list will split opinion, so please let us know where were went wrong.
