I'm Ginger and proud and I decided to try making a team of gingers. This is all I could think of myself:

1. Steven Kitshoff (Stormers/South Africa U20)
2.
3.
4. Paul ***o (Cardiff Blues/Former All Black)
5. Paul O'Connell (Munster/Ireland) or, if you think he's too bald George Merrick (Harlequins/Richmond/England U20)
6. Rob Harley (Glasgow Warriors/Scotland)
7. Conor Joyce (Malone/Ulster Academy)
8. Roddy Grant (Edinburgh/Scotland)
9. Bidzina Samkharadze (Armia Tbilisi/Georgia)
10. Paddy Jackson (Ulster/Ireland U20)
11.
12. Gonzalo Garcia (Treviso/Italy)
13. Csaba Gal (Baia Mare/Romania)
14.
15.

Can anyone fill in the gaps? Just current players.
As you can see, there aren't very many ginger rugby players. We're a dying breed.

Peter Nelson of Ulster and Ireland U20 is very, very, very ginger, and could play any of the back three positions. Declan O'Donnell of NZ 7s is another very ginger person, he can go on a wing.

Also, BG8 will like this thread.

You could always put Cathal Marsh into 10, move Jackson to 12, and Garcia to the wing.

Erik Lund!

Nah never mix business and pleasure if you can grasp the meaning in that.

I picked the username because it's catchy at least to me and I know one.

Anyway I'd say Johny O'Connor is ginger

also if you're desperate for a tighthead there is...Archer and Earls.

Cronin's blonde, get him out of there!

Also, there has to be someone better than Archer...

Yeah Cronin hasn't been ginger for a few seasons.

Cole has a ginger beard if that's enough.

Put Homer fb and Nelson wing.

No, I'd rather an out-and-out winger. There has to be at least one.

Cronin's blonde, get him out of there!

I wasn't too sure either, but that picture of him psychic duck posted looks pretty ginger.

That's what Tony McGahan thought, but he was wrong.

James Ryan, former All Black should be on this list.

And Andrew Mehrtens was semi-ginger...
