    Are you picking who you think is in form now and would be the best World Cup 1st XV, or who you think will be the best World Cup 1st XV at the conclusion of the RWC?

    If you were picking the former, there would be something terribly wrong with you. eg. Du Randt, Latham, Tuqiri, Mealamu.

    I'm also wondering how Du Preez got onto the bench?
    May as well call it the Tri-Nations Form XV

    Team is debatable but I cbf tbh :p

    11. Sitiveni Sivivatu
    10. Stephen Larkham (Normally it would be Carter but he hasnt been in the best form lately)

    Tried to get northern and southern players in. omission of carter may be surprising but i he crumbles under pressure whereas wilkinson does not.

    Good as Mortlock is, why, for the love of god, would anyone not play BOD at 13??? :blink:

    That's like someone saying in 2002 that they would not pick Martin Johnson.

    He was orginally in my team but based on absolute current form alone, i would have to say mortlock right now, he absolutely ripped it up in the tri nations.

    if we had this same thread right after the 6N it would have been d'arcy and BOD without a doubt.

    Agreed, of all the Northern Hemisphere players, I'd say he'd be the first on the team sheet.

    Tried to get a good mix between countries and hemispheres, this is what I came up with in the end



    15. Latham
    14. Habana
    13. O' Driscoll
    12. D' Arcy / Giteau (More than happy with either)
    11. Silvatu
    10. Carter (Bit off form but class act)
    9. Peel
    8. Collins
    7. Mc Caw
    6. Burger
    5. O' Connell
    4. Jack
    3. Haymans
    2. Ibañez
    1. White



    16. Smit
    17. Woodcock
    18. Bortolami
    19 Chabal
    19. Kelleher
    20. Wilkinson
    21. Hernandez
    22. Rokokoco
     
  14. Clearly the best team in the world is:

    15: Chris Latham (as an All Black supporter it pains me BUT he's awesome)
    14: Rockokoko (on the come back...is the real deal)
    13: Brian O'Driscal (He's the man...busted face or not, just nudges Mortlock)
    12: Giteau (Again painful BUT awesome)
    11: Sivivatu (BEST out there)
    10: Carter He's the man
    9: Pieenar (Anyone who STILL says Gregan is really kidding themselves)

    8: Spies...Easy
    7: McCaw ...Best there is
    6: Collins for the big hits and runs
    5: Vickerman...lineouts
    4: Matfield...Lineouts
    3: Hayman
    2: Smit These guys would DESTROY any team with whiney
    1: Wookcock

    16: Mealamu good impact player
    17: Somerville Just back from injury but is great and can play both sides
    18 Botha Big strong guy
    19 George Smith Great player...just not as good as McCaw
    20 Du Preez Great halfback
    21 Nick Evans Better than anything other countries have
    22 Mortlock IMpact player from hell


    So there you have it...top team in the world ONE Northern Hemisphere player and it's all they deserve...I am from NZ

    isn't spies out for the entire RWC?
    and when did carter ever crumble under pressure buddy? maybe during the lions tour? no, coz they won that. or maybe you mean the grand slam tour? no, coz they won that also or maybe u mean the tri nations or bledisloe cup?

    sure he hasn't played a RWC final yet but everything that has been thrown at him so far, he's come out of it with the sun shining out his arse. i don't think he has a problem at all.

    i mean it's bad to make this kind of team because a player is good because he play with menhe knows. Make a team with the best player like lions don't assure the victory
