There is very very little difference between capped and not these days
Stephen has been capped and had he been Scottish or Welsh would have (IMHO) had more

He's not alone in that "club" of playing top level extremely well but not getting the international exposure to be on a list of "superstars"
Toby Flood - class act - very few caps as he was behind Wilkinson
Charlie Hodgson - ditto - probably the best "to the line" 10 England have had in recent years
Andy Goode - won everything in the game
Alex King..
and everyones favourite one eyed pundit Mr Barnes

Conversely one could argue Shane G was lucky to get his caps (scored that one beautiful try though)

Reading the above - is Stephen Dan Carter, Jonny Wilkinson or Jonny Sexton - nope
Is he as good as pretty much everyone else (in some facets better, in others not as strong but as a premiership 10) - 100% yes

oh and I'm peeved Chris (Day) isn't on Wolfy's Saintsman list - but that's a personal opinion

Toby Flood got 60 caps and a whopping 3 year contract at Toulouse. Level above I'm afraid. Others agree with you about just sub international, still superb players. Think Hodgson a better player IMHO. Not sure he would have got in Wales team, probably Scots a few years ago.

You know when I finished the list I realised that I'd missed Christian (I did say would miss some!), then thought I'd see how long it would take you to bite - my bad :-).
