    Hayman is a tighthead ( 3 ) and Woodcock is a loosehead ( 1 ). Also, Lee Byrne anywhere near is silly. On top form, he's no better than any other fullback on top form (Mils, Dagg, Foden, Beale, O'Connor), but the fact of the matter is, he's in shocking form, and has been since 2009. Few other funny issues (like having an all NH back three...).

    Out of interest when people define people by their Hemisphere, when Cipriani returns north and IF he actually becomes a top level player (instead of a poor mans Carlos Spencer), will he be considered a NH or a SH player?

    Same for Tonga'uiha? is he considered a NH or SH player when he's played **** all rugby south of the equator?

    If this is a team made up of current players, but based on the form of their careers, you could arguably have any of these players in the World XV.

    Tana Umaga (Chiefs), Doug Howlett (Munster), Chris Jack (Crusaders), Carl Hayman (Toulon), Jo Rocokoco (Blues)... there are plenty more, but my point is; if a team like this was included it should be based on current form

    Best 22's from the North and the South.
    -South-........................ -North-
    15- Mils Muliaina........... 15- Rob Kearney
    14- Drew Mitchel........... 14- Tommy Bowe
    13- Conrad Smith.......... 13- Brian O'Driscoll
    12- Sonny Bill Williams... 12- Yannick Jouzion
    11- Brian Habanna......... 11- Maxime Medard
    10- Dan Carter.............. 10- Johnny Sexton
    9- Foruie De Preez......... 9- Morgan Parra
    1- Tendi Mtawarira........ 1- Thomas Domingo
    2- Bismark Du Plessis..... 2- William Servat
    3- Tony Woodcock......... 3- Mike Ross
    4 - Bakkies Botha........... 4- Alun-Wyn Jones
    5- Victor Matfield........... 5- Paul O'Connell
    6- Juan Smith................ 6- Sean O'Brien
    7- Richie McCaw............ 7- Imanol Harinordoquy
    8- Kieran Read.............. 8- Jamie Heaslip

    21- Kurtly Beale............. 21- James Hook
    22- James O'Connor....... 22- Shane Williams

    I've made two lists for a few reasons, Most people wouldn't agree with each other
    (ie. South is better than North, North is better than South etc...).
    Not a lot of these players have been at their best this for parts of this season,
    some have also been injured, But they have been consistently the best over the past few years...

    The list isn't 100%, just off the top of my head, so chop and change as much as you like :D

    The reason he's better than Wilkinson is because rugby nowadays is more than just kicking for 3 points

    Is it only about scoring tries....


    Or about doing something extra as well?

    Well done on the try but honestly I think Wilkinson deserves to be in the Classic XV squad.

    You're arguing that Hook is a better defender?
    Wilko's probably the best defensive 10 going





    Since going to Toulon Wilkinson has been on fire - he's not the best 10 in the world, but he's not just a kicking machine.

    Stoddart at IC?
    Did he suddenly learn how to pass and tackle?

    Hahaha yes Paul O'Connor at second row ... new guy never heard of him any good. John Hayes has been garbage, and he's not a loosehead.
