kiaora,
Well super 12 is finished and S14 will begin in february ( why they cant just make a name that doesnt have to be changed i dont know!!)
And as i was reading the Dream 1st 15 topic i realised that it was way too hard for me and that this would be much better...
*the benefit being that it had only gone for 10 seasons and you cant compare players from different eras over the past 100 years because the skill level and genetic upbringings have changed...so whose your team and whats the lineup?

Mine is really difficult being a counties man and supporting the blues at the same time...you may say why arent i going for the chiefies its because i still live in Manukau and thats as Auckland as Auckland can be and also in the beginning Counties were as we all know under the Blues banner so here is my team....

Blues
15. Doug Howlett
14. Joeli Vidiri
13. Mils Muliania
12. Eroni Clarke
11. Jonah Lomu
10. Carlos Spencer
9. Ofisa Tonnuu
8. Zinzan Brooke
7. Mark Carter
6. Andrew Blowers
5. Robin Brooke
4. Troy Flavell
3. Olo Brown
2. Sean Fitzpatrick
1. Craig Dowd
Bench:
Keven Mealamu
Nick White
Glenn Taylor
Rob Cribb
Steve Devine
Adrian Cashmore
Joe Rokocoko

Big call with Howlett at 15 but if your a fellow Blues supporter you would know what i was thinking ... too many good backs!!!
players like Stenseness and Rupeni for his short service didnt make the cutt..even a late Walter Little when Harbour became Blues territory in 1999 and Counties switched to Chief Land ( Poor Decision, but somethings gotta give )

Hello, Kiaora, Talofa...

Im a Nth Harbour Man so Otara my picks are in opposite eyes . Cant believe we had to go play for the Waikato Banner when our Home ground was in Albany. I just had to have Walter Little in the team simply because he hung around and still gave it his best after the dreaded 1998.

I am from the NH but have decided that I should support a super 14 team this year for the tournament as we get quite a lot of coverage. Who should I go for?? Burger is a favourite player of mine but I don&#39;t like many of his Stormers colleagues. I am facing a massive dilemma!! Help!! Persuade me to choose the right team http://www.therugbyforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif .

If you want exciting rugby the Hurricanes or the Blues both play an expansive game the Canes have the likes or Umaga,Collins, So&#39;oialo, Weepu etc so i hope you choose the Hurricanes they usuallu arent far or everybodys top 4 for fav S12 teams just bcoz of the way they play.
