    Yeah well with the 26 being named to take on England, Wales & Ireland I think on Monday I mayaswell share my view on the starting lineup for the all important England match.

    15. Leon MacDonald
    14. Doug Howlett
    13. Joe Rokocoko
    12. Tana Umaga
    11. Sam Tuitopou
    10. Carlos Spencer
    9. Justin Marshall
    8. Taine Randell
    7. Richie McCaw
    6. Reuben Thorne (c)
    5. Simon Maling
    4. Ali Williams
    hmmm the front row is a tough one because Dave Hewitt has been a machine but anyway
    3. Greg Sommerville
    2. Kevin Mealamu
    1. Kees Meuws

    Subs:

    Andrew Mehrtens
    Steve Devine
    Anton Oliver
    Norm Maxwell
    Mils Muliena (I know Mitchell was specialist players but Mils can be a quality player anywhere in the backline)
    Dave Hewitt
    Aaron Mauger

    I would have big Brad Thorn in the reserves. He is awesome coming off the bench. With Maxwell you are just going to end up playing with 14 players and he isn't in good form at the moment

    Collins is a blind side flanker
    Williams will be there not a starter though,
    Maling = Maybe
    Dan Carter = No
    Oliver = Maybe, he hasn't had a great season.

    Tuitopou on the wing? He has played most, maybe all?, of the season at second-five (12). Rokocoko is a winger......

    sorry i stuffed up the numbers

    Tuitopou 2nd five, Rokocoko wing

    I will not support the All Blacks at the World Cup if Anton Oliver is the hooker aswell as captain cause he is hopeless at both jobs.

    Lee has had an awesome year.
    Collins played some of the season at 8 and he will start and I think Thorne will also be there so I put him a 8.

    What's with Simon Maling guys :O? Chris Jack would always take that job for me.

    I would have Mehrtens over Spencer because of experience and goal kicking. Spencer would be on my bench to come in as an impact player.

    15. Cullen
    14. Howlett
    13. Umaga
    12. Mauger
    11. Rokocoko
    10. Mehrtens
    9. Marshall
    8. Collins
    7. McCaw
    6. Thorne (captain)
    5. Jack
    4. Williams
    3. Sommerville
    2. Bugger - the name has just gone - the Canterbury hooker
    1. Meuws

    Carter won't make the AB's for sure, he played very poorly tonight.

    Mehrtens looks as though he's gone Irish with his new ginger sideburns.
    But you can't go past Spencer, he's unbelievable..and despite gifting the Crusaders a try he came back very strongly which was something he was unable to do a couple of years back.

    The good news is, is that there are so many good players in NZ rugby at the moment for every position..so Mitchell is going to struggle to choose 26 players on Monday for the England, Wales, Ireland matches.

    Agreed...

    For mine, Merthens is a far better player than Spencer and has a far better kicking game and more experence

    I think that Spencer on his day is close to the best player in the world. But he does run hot and cold.

    In the sunday star times it says Carter had a reasonable game. It says his defence was great.

    "Of possible All Black newcomers Blues outside backs Muliaina and Rokocoko put in good performances and Carter was solid in the reshuffled Crusaders' backline"
