good fun thanks or sharing


I would defo have Zinzan or Robin Brooke in there

Rory Underwood has to be in there

Billy Vunipola number 8

Luke Whitelock nowhere near good enough for that side

Gavin Hastings better than Armitage

Bismarck Du Plessis better than Tom Youngs

I wonder what odds youíd get of an England back row (and bench) in the next 10 years at some point being made up of:

6. Curry
7. Curry
8. Willis
20. Willis

Hat's off. That's a heck of a team the blogger has put together.

Here's an alternative:

1 Vunipola
2 du plessis
3 du plessis
4 Meads
5 Brooke
6 Brooke
7 Meads/Davies
8 Vunipola
9 Going
10 Ella
11 Underwood
12 Ella
13 Davies
14 Underwood
15 Going

I'd fancy my forwards to win the forward battle.

Not relevant to the discussion, but Bismark du Plessis is one of my all-time favourite names.

Bumped into Steffan Armitage in Toulouse airport last week. Had a very good chat.

Amazed at just how small he is. God knows where his power comes from, it certainly isn't his bulk - but that's another argument*
