    Hmm... I'll work it out the long-winded way.

    John Gallagher - joined ABs on EOYT to France
    Kieran Crowley - had played prior to 1987 and maybe a Cavalier?
    John Kirwan - didn't go on tour and was a Baby Black
    Craig Green - went on Cavaliers tour
    Terry Wright - debutant?
    Joe Stanley - Baby Black
    Warwick Taylor - Cavaliers
    Bernie McCahill - debutant
    Grant Fox - Cavaliers
    Frano Botica - Baby Black but didn't play in the RWC
    David Kirk - Baby Black
    Bruce Deans - debutant
    Wayne Shelford - Cavalier
    Zinzan Brooke - debutant
    Michael Jones - debutant
    Mark Brooke-Cowden - maybe a Baby Black? Not sure on him
    Andy Earl - prior experience?
    Alan Whetton - Cavalier
    Gary Whetton - Cavalier
    Albert Anderson - Cavalier
    John Drake - neither, but came back for 1987, I think
    Steve McDowell - Cavalier
    Richard Loe - debuted on the EOYT to France
    Andy Dalton - Cavalier
    Sean Fitzpatrick - Baby Black

    I'm missing one in the squad... anyone?
    So the Baby Blacks were: Joe Stanley, John Kirwan, David Kirk, and Sean Fitzpatrick. Would say Mark Brooke-Cowden too, but I'm not totally sure.

    I guess the lack of a smiley meant you missed the underlining point of that comment. Your not going to get the general rugby fan to guess or work out the trivia if they are all about the All Blacks, i think there has been two question not about then so far.

    Yeah, that's right - three of the buggers.

    I think it's been half and half so far hasn't it? Can't help it if the All Blacks are such a prominent team in world rugby....

    Remind me again who has won the most World Cups? The All Blacks are just the most prominent chockers in world rugby.

    Chockers? The only thing the All Blacks have ever had to do with a plane was when they stupidly painted the front row on the nose of a 747 in 1999...

    I know it was a guy from the Ivory Coast....but no idea what his name was. He played in the backs though I think.
