Something to consider: Is Michael Hooper the best all-round Wallaby ever? In terms of gut-breaking desperation and determination he has no peer. He plays well beyond his weight and has an unparalleled ability to be in exactly the right place at the moment he’s needed. He is an unusual and effective line out option. He carries the ball effectively, and often sneaks surprising metres, and he always maintains possession. His tackling is incredibly brave and decisive, and if he isn’t the best on-ball presence in a tackle in world rugby, he must be close. He is not afraid to lead from the front, and he is astute. He must be somewhere near the very top.
