    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...

    [I really think you could have chosen a better team.!!
    What about Schalk Burger, But not only him, Ben Foden?
    habana? Jean De Villiers!! More of the 2 time Rugby world cup winners and less of the one time luck of 1987. or the Chokers!! good Players, but really now? Come on guys
