    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....

    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 )

    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.

    SirBurger Guest

    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't like many of his Stormers colleagues. I am facing a massive dilemma!! Help!! Persuade me to choose the right team [​IMG] .

  16. auckland blues my friend

    you want rugged forwards?....we got an allblack front row with the best hooker in the world in kevin mealamu..a sth african lock with ali williams and troy flavell..

    we got a 1 man maul named nick williams and a old school grunt named angus mcdonald...we also got a fine number 7 named daniel braid whos hard work sets the up our fine backline

    and you know auckland...we develop the BEST BACKS IN THE WORLD!!..its a proven fact..dont make me pull out the history book on the great players that have worn the blues jersey and the auckland npc colours...it will be unfair on the rest of clubs around the world

    just see the new talent we have...future allblack anthony tuitevake WILL BLESS AUCKLAND with the fantastic agility and speed he had last year,brent ward at the back directing the play(he reminds of a northern style type player)..also if rokocoko needs a relax then we got little waqueseduadua on the side lines...yet another fijian who poses threat with a rugby ball and a pair of boots

    ofcourse a returning to form howlett AND rokocoko..all black legendary wingers,also the side stepping and heavy hitting of rua tipoki and ofcourse the future of allblack rugby in luke mcalistair

    like i said mate..you want excitement,flair,big hits,dominating scrums,speed,intricate set plays,out standing individual runs,team work at its most entertaining...and rugby [​IMG] ..then auckland is youre team

    pick auckland...and you will not only get 1 bottle of natural glow..but 2 BOTTLES...

    call now at 0800 suzanballz...0800 suzanballz

    [​IMG]

    auckland mate..i promise you will see the most exciting team in the super14

    ALLBLACKS Guest

    You want the Bulls with Bryan Habana improving his speed by 1 Sec over the off season occording to the Bulls camp, He will be a joy to watch...Jokes he has no step, But hes Dangerous.

    AUCKLAND BLUES!!! Team with Flair and as proven last yr during the NPC a team with the ability to play constructive Rugby.

    Yes, but they don't wear Yellow...
     
  19. Yeah Lomu did **** all in the Canes jersey @ least Talea had some good tires and some good hits.
     
  20. If you want exciting rugby the Hurricanes or the Blues both play an expansive game the Canes have the likes or Umaga,Collins, So'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.
