There are many players who could be in this list, but I would like to remember the greatest big hitter of all time. He never played in Super Rugby, but he was an outstanding 7's player and quite good at XV's as well. I'm talking of course about Viliame "The Stretcher" Satala!
"seemed like they were in it the whole game." : sadly it's the story of the highlanders this season. They build up some very good phases, but it often ends up with a turnover, an interception, or another mistake. And they are horrible defensively. But we can still admire the skills of B.Smith, H.Gear and T.Ellison. However Nonu is absolutely rubbish with the Landers, it's not the same player with the AB shirt on his shoulders.
