  3. Of course, being patriotic to the point it blinds you, you've got more Welsh players than New Zealenders. No Scotts either. Hogg, Taylor and White should all be in there. I would do one, but I can't be bothered just now.

    dream/world XVs are usually biased anywayz, so not surprised by the selection, infact my team would only feature players south of the equator, with the exception of odriscoll. :p

    odriscoll not in your 22 lora.. are you insane?!?!?!?!
     
  9. Hogg > Ryan Jones.

    For a second opinion, speak to one Mr R. McCaw who said Hogg was one of the best flankers he's played against after the autumn test.

    as i said nz should take it as compliment that every team dreams of beating them.
     
  18. yep and SH ppl should not underestimate so much the north. we've beaten saf in saf, who are the only team to have beaten the AB and we don't even get one player ???? hum ??? weird !!!
    there'll be surprises in these autumn tests and some of u will have to shut up !!!

    It's not that I don't rate NH players I just feel some SH players are better, and I also don't get to see NH provincial/club games at all.

    Michalak, O'Driscoll etc are excellent players, but it's personal preverence.
     
  20. euh how many guys from the north in your XV ??? looking at your list, it seems you consider all the SH players better ... we'll see ... i don't say we're gona kick your ass, i just say you underestimate NH players value (not talking only of france but wales ireland & scotland)

    I don't underestimate NH players at all. But there isn't one players I would include in my squad of Wales and Scotland.

    My team would be made up off French, Irish and English players. I picked my 22 on Tri-nations form. Although I may replace Rogers and Olivier with O'Driscoll and Michelack. I also rate Cedric Heymans very highly.
