So there was an amusing article in the Sydney Morning Herald over the weekend where John Connolly put forward his picks for the Wallabies...... http://www.rugbyheaven.com.au/news/interna...7856917222.html Connolly was obviously using the article to justify the bum selections he'd picked in recent times by making statements that players like Dunning and Tuqiri will be the first ones picked..... We're past the halfway point in the Super 14 and I was just curious who everyone thinks will be making the team.... Despite the Waratahs somehow sitting in the top 4, I really do not think they'll dominate the squad (well, they probably won't dominate the starting XV) - Props - Holmes, Robinson, Shepherdson, ? I really don't know about the 4th prop - I have a bad feeling it will be Dunning. I hope Robbie Deans is smarter than that Hooker - Polata-Nau, Faingaa, Freier Lots of young talent here. Moore has been in poor form and I'm not that keen on Freier. Huia Edmonds has been great in open play but his lineout throwing sucks Locks - Vickerman (apparently he'll be around for the tests), Sharpe, Chisholm, Horwill? Vickerman and Sharpe are the best in the country come lineout time, but they stink in the scrum. Chisholm is a better scrummager and the best ball running lock, but no doubt they'll stick with the incumbent pair Backrow - George Smith (duh!), Rocky Elsom, Richard Brown, Stephen Hoiles, Phil Waugh I believe the backrow combination has been cemented in with Elsom, Smith and Brown. Personally, I'd put Hoiles on the bench over Waugh becomes he can cover all positions, is good in the lineout and is the most athletic out of all the backrowers. Scrumhalves - Cordingley, Burgess, Holmes/Phibbs Phibbs had a great start to the year but has gone down the list of candidates and might not even get looked in over Holmes. Cordingley has been the most consistent and now that Burgess has been given a go he's showing that he'll probably cover Cordingley from the bench. However, I don't want to throw too much hype towards him after two weeks. Flyhalves - Giteau, Barnes I believe Barnes will probably play inside centre, but I've listed him here because he's probably the only decent backup for Giteau. Centres - Mortlock, Staniforth, Cross, Ashley-Cooper I've listed Ashley-Cooper here but I have a feeling he might partner Mitchell on the wing. Wings - Mitchell, Turner I haven't listed too many options here because there's a number of our centres and fullbacks who can cover wing. Fullbacks - Latham, Gerrard, Shepherd Anyways, that's my picks for the 30 man squad. What're y'all think? I won't be game to predict a starting 15 man squad until the end of the Super 14.
