This summer, Will Greenwood is working with Wolf Blass to encourage rugby fans to select the rugby players of past and present as part of their #WinningLineUp campaign.

Greenwood is undertaking the difficult task of narrowing down the rugby greats to create his ultimate winning line up. Players including pitch legend Lawrence Dallaglio, high try-scorer John Kirwin and English favourite Jason Leonard made the cut, along with Greenwood’s former World Cup winning team mates Jonny Wilkinson and captain Martin Johnson.

Greenwood is selecting his top quality team, providing his hints and tips for who he would have in his own ideal pitch line up as a guide for people wanting to select their own #WinningLineUp with Wolf Blass this summer.

Greenwood has developed the team in partnership with Wolf Blass to celebrate the Best of Rugby as they launch their Limited Edition Rugby bottles this summer. Wine and rugby will unite during allowing fans to enjoy the taste of triumph with the specially commissioned labels.

Greenwood said “My winning line-up features the finest quality players from all over the world and has been a work in progress for many years, including people I was lucky enough to play alongside as well as people I’ve admired for years. Being such an intense and high impact sport the right balance of skill and determination is essential, and after much deliberation, for my money this list reflects this ‘Best Of’ both perfectly”

The best of rugby shortlist as selected by Will is forming tips and suggestions to help rugby and wine fans make tricky choices between the players, with Wolf Blass encouraging rugby fans to have their say in the ultimate winning line-up! Consumers can take part by simply tweeting or retweeting @WolfBlassWines with the full name of their chosen player and the hashtag #WinningLineUp.

The Wolf Blass Limited Edition Rugby bottles will be available from major retailers across the UK from August 20th.
