    I wondered how people's dream teams would change before and after the world cup

    So I would like as many people to list their World XV before the World Cup starts, and list another after the final, and see the difference. Here's mine


    Jason White

    Bit undecided in places, had to leave out Owen, Martyn Williams, D'Arcy and Wilkinson.

    What d'you think. Please post

    HERE´S ANOTHER ONE: MIKE CATT!!!!!!!!! HAHAHA [/b][/quote]

    You an idiot or just so anti-Welsh that you cant see that Dwayne Peel is clearly one of, if not the best, scrumhalfs in the world? I admit I have said that I think Phillips should start for Wales as he is the future number one scrumhalf but Peel is clearly one of the best in the world. Although I disagree with Alfie being in the team, he's nowhere near the best fullback in the world IMO

    but my world XV would be

    15 Hernandez.
    14. Bryan Habana
    13. Brian O'Driscoll
    12. Mils Muliaina
    11. SIvivatu
    10. Dan Carter
    9. Dwanye Peel

    1. Andrew Sheridan (he has his doubters but I think hes an amazing scrummager)
    2. Rafael Ibanez
    3. Carl Hayman
    4. Paul O' Connell
    5. Alun Wyn Jones
    6. Jerry Collins
    7. Richie McCaw

    Close calls were at hooker (there were no real standouts), Lock (Botha, Vickermann), Number 8 (So'ioalo, Leamy), second-five (Jauzion), and fullback (Muliana).

    19 Serge Betsen
    20 Daniel Carter
    21 Andy Farrell

    Hmm im quite surprised you picked Wilkinson over Carter in the starting lineup. I wont disagree until i see both of the peform at the world cup. Carter hasn't been in top form at the moment so gee i dunno. Everyones enitled to their own oppinion

    My thoughts exactly; Perry isn't even the best in England, let alone the world.

    Isnt Shaun Perry only playing because Harry Ellis is injured? Surely Perry is no where near the best in England nevermind the world

    Fourie is clearly one of the best scrumhalfs. so what is the point?
    I think Wilkinsen is in beter form then Carter and Larkham are the best Flyhalf now. For flyhalf it is hard to choose a man

    I think at least one italian should be in there, probably parisse or mauro bergamasco, but it wud be ludicrous to drop mccaw at the expense. Jason White is absolutely immense, guaranteed for the 6 spot, but Betsen, Collins or Simon Easterby run him close.

    But remember the point is to make a team after the world cup and compare
  19. 1) Sheridan
    2) Flannery
    3) Hayman
    4) O'Connell
    5) Matfield
    6) Burger
    7) McCaw
    8) Spies
    9) Gregan
    10) Carter
    11) Rockoko
    12) D'Arcy
    13) O'Driscoll
    14) Habana
    15) Hernandez

    16) Ibanez
    17) Woodcock
    18) Jack
    19) Leamy
    20) Peel
    21) Wilkinson
    22) Mortlock
