The game is unrealistic. The ref sees Richie McCaw cheating in it everytime

See the reason Healy didn't seem that good a scrummager a few years ago is because he's actually a tighthead.

He's played centre for Clontarf. Not that it's in any way relevant, but imagine being the poor sod lined up against him.

Good God! Poor guy also pity the guy playing centre for Treviso against Ferris when he shifted there. I suppose at least he was a pro.

In South Africa alone we have Pietersen, Aplon, Mvovo and Basson (although injured) who are better at the moment.

Habana is an 11-wing and JP is a 14-wing... can't be compared by one another as their positioning is totally different...

JP is an 11 wing though. He only plays 14 because of Mvovo and Habana, when Mvovo wasn't there he played 11 for the Sharks.

Habana's been at his best this season, at least when compared to the last couple of seasons.

I would have Ioane and Jane as my wings...

Not Drew and Bowe. At least not IMO. Have you seen Mitchell play lately? I'd much rather have the current Habana.

In South Africa alone we have Pietersen, Aplon, Mvovo and Basson (although injured) who are better at the moment.

I'd take Habana over Mvovo and Basson ATM TBH but that's just MO.

Nah, not much difference. Depends what you're comfortable with and some wingers are comfortable both sides, most aren't so much.

Drew Mitchell was playing well before the World Cup last year, prior to injury... But that was a long time ago :p He's only played a couple of games since.

I really feel for Mitchell he was an incredible player IMO before his injury problems doesn't help that his teammates don't want to pass to him.

Bowe is pure class. Hope he can come back from his injury.
