Okay so Lomu was an good player, but in this era he would have hardly as much of an effect as he did in his day. When he played there were the days of flankers who looked liked wingers! He had no ability to read the game, his defence was EXTREMELY poor for someone of his size, his skill was TERRIBLE, the ONly thing he could do was run.

Now lets look at Shane, IRB player of the year 2008, six nations man of the tournament 2008, third highest try scorer of all time, and the highest try scorer still currently playing rugby. For HIS SIZE he has great defence, he has stopped the likes of Shane Horgan and even Beast. He has an excellent rugby brain and thus reads the game very well. Great acceleration and speed and i don't even need to talk about his skills.

In this modern era of HUGE rugby players even bigger than Lomu who are buffed up on protein shakes etc...... Lomu could not get anywhere close Williams has got to, let's face it Lomu just had size, Williams on the other hand has got sheer brilliance!
