6: Richard Hill
Born: 23 May 1973
Nationality: English
Position: Flanker
Caps: 63
Debut: v Scotland 01/02/97
Did you know? Hill has played more than 200 games for Saracens
Saracens stalwart Richard Hill is the strong and silent type.

Quiet and unassuming off the field, he is at his workmanlike best on it.

Hill is undoubtedly one of the great flankers of the modern game, despite following the more traditional route of knuckling down to the job with little expectation of any reward.

Originally the likes of Lawrence Dallaglio and Neil Back gained the plaudits while Hill just got on with the job.

But such is his consistency for Saracens and England, he earns more praise with every game he plays.

Despite an often lumbering look on the run, Hill has surprise pace and always seems to get himself in the right place at the right time - as his 11 Test tries testify.

He is regarded, among his peers, as a expert in the technicalities of the game and remains one of the first names on Clive Woodward's team sheet.
