    Headhunter's vote is crucial as it means big Jonah Lomu edges out the great Campo by th odd point & BoD gets closer than he's any right to (seriously, what has he done in world cups?!?) but common sense prevails and Wilkinson advances.

    Final two match ups for Round 2:

    Battle 7

    Nick Farr-Jones (Australia)



    vs

    Doug Howlett (New Zealand)




    Battle 8

    Michael Lynagh (Australia)



    vs

    Tim Horan (Australia)




    Australia's victorious captain from 1991 goes up against the flying All-Black wing who was the top try-scorer in 2003 & his halves partner from that first triumph faces another team-mate who repeated the dose in 1999 for good measure.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Quarter-Finals

    Relatively straightforward wins for Farr-Jones & Horan mean we now have our final 8:

    John Eales
    Nick Farr-Jones
    Tim Horan
    Stephen Larkham

    Sean Fitzpatrick
    Michael Jones
    Jonah Lomu

    Jonny Wilkinson


    Antipodeans very much in the majority, but Jonny is still in there. I'll go to one match-up per day now we'e entering the home straight. The draw is, as ever, random & the first names out of the randomiser are:

    1st Quarter

    Nick Farr-Jones (Australia)



    vs

    Jonah Lomu (New Zealand)




    In a trans-Tasman clash the quick hands & guile of Australia's captain & scrum-half from their 1991 victory go up against the awesome Rugby battering-ram that was Jonah Lomu.

    If this was just general rugby Lomu. But Farr-Jones did for more then Lomu at World Cups and really stepped up when his country needed him, rather then go missing.
