    Id like to find out just how many games Mortlock ahs actually played for these teams over the last couple of years. Hed be close to missing more than he has played
    My 2008/09 stats
    Games: 10 Innings: 10 Nout Outs: 3 Runs: 489 Average: 69.86 Highest: 154 Fifties: 0 Hundreds: 3

    Injuries have nothing to do with it, he's played more than enough games for both Australia and the Brumbies in the last few seasons to show how classy he is.

    Personally the only international player i would bring into the Top XV for the All Blacks would be Gregan.
    Also with the current locking injuries, Matfield and the irish guy Kay is it?

    So Mortlock's past it but Gregan isn't? Oh dear.

    Matfield would walk into the All Black side if he had just taken a leaf out of Greg Rawlinson's book.

    And Ben Kay is English, not Irish. And has only managed about 20-odd appearances for England since the World Cup, where he became famous for dropping a pass with the line open.

    so who is the ginger from Ireland im thinking of?

    Matfield would walk in your right. But if we had ronbinson jack and williams he would struggle

    Gregan might be past his best - but still no one better than him around

    Paul O'Connell. No one better around than Gregan? I'd rate Fourie Du Preez ahead of him for starters.

    No. I'll be rather pissed off if he replaces Flavell in the squad, less so if Filipo misses out.

    Brace yourself Perm because it's about to happen...I just wish it was Thorne who was on the chopping block....he's one of the worst ever All Blacks...up there with Jimmy Cowan.

    Harsh IMO but he's been tripe lately and shouldn't be in the team.

    You've proven yourself to be too much of an ignorant tool to see that Thorne is a good player. People like you are the reason I hate the NZ rugby public.

    Ignore.

    You're a charming lad

    And the NZ rugby public know nothing about rugby do they? Of course not, they couldn't possibly know as much as a 16 year old kid who couldn't make an Otago Country rep team
