My World XV would look a bit different:

15. Kurtley Beale
14. Tommy Bowe
13. Jaque Fourie
12. Sonny Bill Williams
11. Chris Ashton
10. Daniel Carter
9. Fourie Du Preez
8. Sergio Parisse
7. Richie McCaw
6. Thierry Dusautoir
5. Victor Matfield
4. Sam Whitelock
3. Carl Hayman
2. Bismark Du Plesis
1. Tony Woodcock

Bench:
16. Keven Mealamu
17. Tendai Mtawarira
18. Paul O'Connell
19. Kieran Read
20. Will Genia
21. James O'Connor
22. Mils Muliaina

I'm not sure about this at all, some tough calls. Based on a combination of recent form and overall talent.

As far as a "Classic XV" or "World XV" goes I'd like it to be more spread out around more than just the top test playing nations...

eg, For the Classic team i'd include players like Rupeni Caucau (FIJI), Brian Lima (SAMOA), Augustine Pichot (ARGENTINA) etc.
and for the World XV i'd include players like Martin Castrogiovanni (ITALY), Juan Martín Hernández (ARGENTINA) etc.

Although it's hard to compare players from different parts of the world or different era's i think it's important that these sorts of teams (If included in the game) aren't completely dominated by NZ, Australian, South African, English and French players...

What player has won 2 rugby world cups? Neither De Villiers nor Burger deserve a place in a world XV
