A few months ago we run polls to select our Springbok XV from 1992 to 2019 and now we want a World XV that will take this team on.
We are going to Twitter again to run our polls and we have our first player in our squad.

Here we go with picking a World XV and we start with Fullback. Only four that can be in the running so difficult but give us your vote. We again go from 1992 to 2009 only.

Cullen came on the scene and took over the world with his side steps and running style. He hold the All Blacks record for most tries by the time he retired.
He was just someone special which you do not see that often in a lifetime.

As with Cullen Howlett was a try-scoring machine for the All Blacks and with that one of the nicest guys around as well.
The man ended his career at Munster and till the end still one off the most dangerous wings around in the world.
