In current Rugby Union, who is a better overall player, Jonny Wilkinson or Dan Carter?
Carter by a fair bit. Has more pace & a better eye for the gap than Jonny. I'd still take Newcastle Infirmary’s star patient to slot that pressure pen tho.
They're the top two in the world for me tho; third is possibly a more interesting shout. If we exclude the Kiwis topping up their retirement funds in the Zurich Rest-Home (Mehrts & Spencer) it's a tight call. Michalak is up there on his day, but those days are fairly infrequent; Larkham ageing & no longer an automatic pick; Jones is steady without ever really truly convincing he's worthy to fill the Welsh 10; so it's possibly wee Ronan.

Wilkinson. He's actually playing rugby at the moment.
