The following article has been adapted from the original by Dai Llewellyn, which focused on two players. It has been changed to highlight only the selected inductee’s information.
Hugo Porta, the legendary Argentinian fly half, has earned his place on the Wall of Fame.
Will Carling regards his fellow inductee in only the highest terms. “When I was younger I watched him and I thought then what a great player he was.
“To have had such an influence on the game when playing for a country that was still in a developmental phase is extraordinary. Few, if any, players have commanded the same respect from their peers when playing for one of the lesser sides.
“And as a man he displays dignity and there is a charm about him. He was as good a fly half as there has ever been in world rugby.”
