After no less than 32,232 votes were cast, the fans have voted for their Wales Dragonhearts Team of the Decade.

There was a lot of fierce rivalry in most of the positions, with some leads changing hands regularly.

So we thought it would be good to name a first and second XIII to honour those players who were involved in said battles. The first XIII consists of players who finished first in their position voting, the second XIII naturally consists of those who finished second.

Thank you to everyone who voted, and for your enthusiasm in sharing so others would vote to bring recognition to the community game in Wales – the most important aspect of the campaign.
