    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 *********!

    Robert Norster

    I was going for the latter, really. Obviously any sample of 32 is going to mean some noteable omissions, but I think 64 might be spreading it a little thin, especially given the relatively small group of union fans on here for voting purposes.

    Any road I make it 30 now nominated & seconded:

    Jonah Lomu
    Michael Jones
    Sean Fitzpatrick
    Grant Fox
    Andrew Mehrtens
    Doug Howlett
    John Kirwan

    David Campese
    John Eales
    Tim Horan
    Chris Latham
    Michael Lynagh
    Stephen Larkham
    Matt Burke
    Nick Farr-Jones
    George Gregan

    Martin Johnson
    Jonny Wilkinson
    Jason Leonard

    Francois Pienaar
    Joost van der Westhuizen
    Joel Stransky
    Chester Williams

    Serge Blanco
    Phillipe Sella
    Olivier Magne

    Keith Wood
    Brian O’Driscoll

    Gavin Hastings

    Ieuan Evans


    The follwoing have been nominated:

    Christophe Dominici
    Frederic Michalak
    Daniel Dubroca
    Jean Condom
    Eric Champ
    Laurent Rodriguez
    Phillipe Saint-Andre
    Jean-Luc Sadourny
    Christian Califano
    Abdel Benazzi
    Serge Betsen
    Fabien Pelous

    Joe Roff
    Lote Tuqiri
    Jason Little
    Simon Poidevin

    Joe Rokocoko
    Mils Muliaina
    Marc Ellis
    Buck Shelford
    Frank Bunce
    Zinzan Brooke
    Ian Jones

    Diego Cuesta Silva
    Patricio Noriega
    Federico Mendez
    Hugo Porta

    Jonathan Davies
    Robert Norster
    Robert Jones

    Rupeni Caucaunibuca

    Jason Robinson

    Os du Randt
    Mark Andrews
    James Small
    Andre Joubert
    Cobus Visagie
    Andre Venter
    Bobby Skinstad

    Marcello Cuttitta
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - 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."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Round One

    Finally we have our quorum:

    Jonah Lomu
    Michael Jones
    Sean Fitzpatrick
    Grant Fox
    Andrew Mehrtens
    Doug Howlett
    John Kirwan

    David Campese
    John Eales
    Tim Horan
    Chris Latham
    Michael Lynagh
    Stephen Larkham
    Matt Burke
    Nick Farr-Jones
    George Gregan

    Martin Johnson
    Jonny Wilkinson
    Jason Leonard
    Jason Robinson

    Francois Pienaar
    Joost van der Westhuizen
    Joel Stransky
    Chester Williams

    Serge Blanco
    Phillipe Sella
    Olivier Magne

    Keith Wood
    Brian O’Driscoll

    Gavin Hastings

    Ieuan Evans

    Hugo Porta


    The draw has been made totally at random & I'll be running two battles per day for the first round. Ok:

    Battle One:

    Jason Leonard (England)



    vs

    Brian O'Driscoll (Ireland)



    Battle Two:

    Grant Fox (New Zealand)



    vs

    David Campese (Australia)



    So it's England's fun bus, the former world record test caps holder & veteren of four WC campaigns against the pride of Ireland & the All Black's point machine, whose boot inspired them to the title in 1987 versus the mouth of the south whose deliberate knock-on inspired Oz to the title in 1991...

    Voting lasts 24 hours.
