Top duo: Larkham & Gregan

Charged with controlling the match and guiding their team to victory, half-back pairings rely on each other constantly.

Our friends over at Bleacher Report have picked out the greatest half-back pairings of all time, with one player even appearing twice in the top two. Have a look.
