i dunnoo as much about some of those forwards but the backline has a hell of alot of pace and power through the all blacks back 2 and Motlock especially - trying to avoind penalty shootouts and score trys. not worrying as much about lineouts but rucks and mauls with the Aussie combination of Waugh and Smith.

just missed out: Jerry Collins (New Zealand), Phil Waugh (Australia), Ali Williams (New Zealand), Cornie Krige (South Africa), Tom Smith (Scotland), Johnny Wilkinson (England), Llestyn Harris (Wales), Ben Cohen (England), Mike Tindall (England)

The reason i put Michalak on the bench in front of Wilkinson, is for Michalak's ability to play both five-eight and scrumhalf - and in any case, Michalak is just as good as footballer as Wilkinson. FM covers both positions, whilst Umaga covers both centre spots, and Howlett covers the back three.

Cricketer Of The Year
On current form i'd have Michalak over Wilkinson...Michalak is a superb player, he can kick goals & his running game is also very good.

umm Robinson..no way, lol yeah ok he steps a Welsh player but what else has he done in the World Cup?

The wingers of the tournament have been Caucau & daylight really...Rokocoko has been ok, but he's missed a few games through injury & Howlett hasn't really looked at his best in this World Cup.

Centres...well i'd have the French pairing of Marsh & Jauzion to be honest.

Anyway here's who i'd pick from the games i've watched anyway.

1. Jason Leonard (Eng)
2. Keven Mealamu (NZ)
3. Phil Vickery (Eng)
4. Martin Johnson (Eng)
5. Chris Jack (NZ)
6. George Smith (Aus)
7. Richie McCaw (NZ)
8. Imanol Harinordoquy (Fra)
9. Justin Marshall (NZ)
10. Frederic Michalak (Fra)
11. Rupeni Caucau (Fiji)
12. Yannick Jauzion (Fra)
13. Tony Marsh (Fra)
14. Joe Rokocoko (NZ)
15. Mils Muli'aina (NZ)

I agree about the French #8 he's been very good.

no Howlett or Rokococo because they are both overrated losers.

Also why do so many of you have players playing out of position?

Would anyone be intested in a Rugby PBEM it would start off with a draft and then using software i built we could have a league any takers?
