Regional All Star Ultimate XV | Number Eight
First Team News | 29th April 2020
After Justin Tipuric edged past Martyn Williams to seal his place at openside flanker, it's time to complete the pack with our number eight.
Xavier Rush is, without doubt, one of the finest exports in Welsh rugby. The All Black immediately made his mark on the regional game, with his ball carrying ability and aggressiveness regularly putting his side on the front foot. He was instrumental in the EDF Energy Cup and Amlin Cup victories and became one of Europe's leading players at the base of the scrum.
Rushy is up against a trio of Welsh internationals in Scott Quinnell, Taulupe Faletau and Ryan Jones.
