    Yup, Philips is supposedly 6'3 & 104 kg accordingly to Wiki which is just mental for a halfback. Surely the biggest international halfback ever.

    Fair enough.

    Got a sneaking feeling Wales might win the whole dman thing, for some reason.

    Apologies to Welsh supporters, that pretty well guarantees they'll be on the way home Sunday.

    To put that in perspective thats apparently 2kg heavier than Taniela Moa...so rather large indeed.

    Water retention can make that kind of difference.

    Watched SA vs Aus again and Bismark is a must for the 2 position.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I realise theres a touch of irony in your selections but even so, Afoa ahead of Franks? And either way Woodcock's a specialist loosehead (#1) and Afoa's a better tighthead (#3).

    Yeah, I was just being ironic, naming only All Blacks players, not really thinking about issues like those.

    And shame on me for putting Woodcock at 3 instead of 1, completely screwed that one up.

    People are saying Philips is the half back of the tournament.

    Adjusted:
    Healy, Tincu, O.Franks, Thorn, Roussouw, Dusatoir, McCaw, Kaino, Phillips, Priestland, Jane, Nonu, Roberts, Ashton, Dagg

    Would've kept Warburton but the red card. Kept Priestland since I found no real alternative at 10. Reserves might look something like: Servat, Castrogiovanni, Thorn, Warburton/O'Brien, Houggard/Fotuali'i, (reserve 10?), Kahui/Clerc
