Dave Hodges
Dave Hodges
Born: 15/9/68
Position: Flanker/number eight
Team: Llanelli
Debut: 21/9/96 v Uruguay
Past World Cups: 1999
Did you know? Played American football for Hamburg Blue Devils (1993-4)
The 2003 World Cup looks set to be Hodges' international swansong, having notched up 50 Test caps in the process.

Currently with Welsh side Llanelli, the 35-year-old captain of the national side lacks some of the pace of his earlier career.

But his tactical brain makes him a major asset to both the Eagles and Llanelli, where he was player of the season in 2001/2.

He played a crucial role as the US booked their place in the World Cup, scoring the opening try against rivals Spain.

Hodges remains a very versatile player, who could be employed at lock, flanker or number eight.
