This was tough.

I tried to keep it to players who did great things whilst at Gloucester, otherwise I would have picked Sam Underhill, James Hook, Jimmy Cowan and Carlos Spencer.

Iain Balshaw left after the 2008-2009 season so he wasn't in this decade of seasons. I would’ve picked him.

I think we have had better centres than EFS. But I liked his flair and think the magic on show with Cips would be delightful. It was tough to leave out Trinder who has been equally skillfull but maybe creates less for the wingers? Discuss.

Back row was the hardest for me, I also considered Gareth Delve and Jake Boer who others haven’t mentioned. Jake Boer was 35 years old during his second stint at Glos in the 2009-2010 season and only played 7 times. If it had been his first stint, he would’ve been straight in.

Looking at who gave significant contributions to the club over the last 10 years, I feel the players that haven't been mentioned yet but warrant a place are guys like Kvesic, Kalamafoni, both Burns, Dawidiuk and Cook. Even though they've had their ups and downs and aren't always necessarily the best players I think they all played a huge role for the club over the last 10 years.
Surprised Sharples hasn't got much recognition too - him and Trinder are the only ones as far as I'm aware who were at the club prior to 2010.

Cowen, before his injury, was superb with Freddie at 10. Freddie flourished, in the knowledge that he would get quality quick ball. Shame that partnership didn't last. Missed out on potential and opportunity for Glos & in Freddie's case, more England caps.

Afoa over Somerville....I think Greg was better technically and physically.

I knew someone would be itching to say that. I hope you realise how rash you have been, having done so. Still, I'm not sore about it.
