At 6ft 9 Luke Charteris is one of the tallest players in world rugby. Unsurprisingly the lock forward is an important lineout weapon. Charteris began his career with Llanelli Scarlets before moving to Newport Gwent Dragons in 2003. However, since his debut in 2004 against South Africa, Charteris has been unable to secure a regular starting berth for Wales. He missed out on selection for the 2007 World Cup.
