Into the front row we go and there are three burly contenders ready to pack down in the front row for the Rugby Rugby readers' Team of 2011 and all have a strong pedigree to make it a tight race to win your vote.
A quality tighthead prop is worth his weight in gold and most of them aren't small men, and while it isn't the most glamorous job in rugby, it is a crucial one for a successful scrumming unit.
The three strong men have been dominant forces in rugby this year and have made scrum time a nightmare for opposition looseheads, and have each won some tighthead scrums to the horror of their opposition and delight of their teams.
The first big man in the vote is Italian star Martin Castrogiovanni, who has turned scrumming into a form of art and is an intimidating figure in the front row.
Castro has become a folk hero for both the Azzurri and Leicester Tigers with his shaggy hair and cheeky grin whenever it's time to pack down in another scrum.

One of the most improved front rows in recent times in All Blacks powerhouse Owen Franks, who was voted into both the Rugby Rugby Super Rugby and Tri-Nations teams for his excellent work this season.
Franks is a big bruiser, who will hurt you in the scrums if you don't get your hit in, and his raw power has made some strong front rows crumble under the pressure.
He was one of the bearded wonders during Super Rugby, but it was his rugby, not his facial features, that impressed this year.
The final star is French scrumming machine Nicolas Mas, who has top quality technique to dismantle much large men in the scrums.
His true value was felt when he was ruled out with a hamstring injury for the World Cup pool clash against the All Blacks. His return in the restored France's dominance in the scrums, as he so aptly demonstrated in the final.
