    Are we actually drafting a XV or do reserves come in?

    I don't think we confirmed that TBH - personally I think it'll take long enough to complete 15 rounds let alone 22.

    Reckon we could do it if we didn't have so many people on the wrong side of the world in this draft. I'll be honest I'm going to struggle to find 15 players, let along 22.

    Interesting to see the a lot of Aussie picked recently. The Saffies have to close for their flood.

    In that case someone should do business with Michael over one of his fly-halves.

    Pretty sure Edwards is a scrum half and Fox is fly half. Someone just made a typo, probably Jamee.

    Guys, if you have to go, it might be worth messaging who you want to someone who will be online (probably someone who doesn't pick between you and where the draft is atm). It just helps to keep the draft moving
    Or something.

    Wilson Whineray.

    A bit of proper kiwi beef to prop things up. I'll let Johnno & him sort it out between them who'll be my skipper.

    If you want, you could message someone with a couple of players that they could select for you so that you don't miss out over the weekend - I'm sure we're honest enough not to immediately steal such a shortlist of players.

    With so many five-eighths being selected, I'll have to pick one now I think. There's only two more five-eighths who I consider in the upper-tier, so I'll pick one now. I select Cliff Morgan, arguably Wales' greatest ever flyhalf and possibly the best flyhalf ever. Personally in terms of great flyhalfs, I rate Porta the best in terms of individual brilliance, Ella the best in terms of constructive brilliance and Morgan the best in terms of having the best legacy.

    Morgan played in a different era where you really had to be about your wits. Morgan used heavy leather balls, received no lengthy spin passes, lineouts spread across the field, wing-forwards 10 yards away. To succeed then required speed off the mark, good feet, imagination and flair.

    Morgan:
    * Captained Wales
    * Beat the All Blacks with Wales (the last time Wales have beat New Zealand) and CARDIFF!
    * Beat the Boks as a Lion (scoring the famous winning try in front of 100,000 at Ellis Park). Honestly, that Lions side scored 26 tries in four Tests. That's unbelievable in any area. If a try was worth mroe than three points in those days, the Lions would have won 4-0, which would have sent shockwaves through the rugby world.
    * Won a Grand Slam in 52.
    * Was a legendary Barbarian.
    * Kept Carwyn James out of the Welsh side.
