It isnt only that, he never really did anything outstanding for the All Blacks apart from lead them, much like Reuben Thorne haha. My centres order would be O'Driscoll, Mortlock/Conrad then Umaga

Considering Jason Leonard's considered an all-time great that's a big call to bench him...

Yea fair point. I just didn't want bench one of my all time favs in Hayes. and I reckon Leonard played his best rugby in the '90s.

Attempting a P.I. team

1. Bill Cavubati (FIJ)
2. Greg Smith (FIJ)
3. Tonga Lea'aetoa (TON)
4. Inoke Afeaki (TON)
5. Filipo Levi (SAM)
6. Semo Sititi (SAM)
7. Nili Latu (TON)
8. Sisa Koyamaibole (FIJ)
9. Mosese Rauluni (FIJ)
10. Nicky Little (FIJ)
11. Rupeni Caucaunibuca (FIJ)
12. Brian Lima (SAM)
13. Seru Rabeni (FIJ)
14. Lome Fa'atau (SAM)
15. Norman Ligairi (FIJ)

16. Alex Lutui (TON)
17. Cencus Johnson (SAM)
18. Simon Raiwalui (FIJ)
19. Henry Tuilagi (SAM)
20. Steven So'oialo (SAM)
21. Tanner Vili (SAM)
22. Epi Taione (SAM)

Bit weak in the tight 5, isn't easy to judge them as I haven't seen them play to often, but that backline would be amazing. Only chose players that represented Samoa, Tonga or Fiji, hence why Sivivatu and Lauaki don't feature.

Haven't seen him there for a while but he used to work most nights. I've had a few yarns with him, he hated his propping partner Joe Veitayaki, haha. Together those two weighed over 300kg!

haha not at all, he's still a beast these days, not as big I don't think. He has the record for biggest man to make a test appearance weighing in at 165kg, I think Veitayaki in his prime was about 140ish.

Couple of ABs have played for Samoa - Michael Jones and Frank Bunce both did IIRC, and a halfback...

Thought I'd whip up a All Black team of the '90s to compare with the All Blacks of the '00s, who do you think would win if both were in their prime?

1. Craig Dowd
2. Sean Fitzpatrick
3. Olo Brown
4. Ian Jones
5. Robin Brooke
6. Michael Jones
7. Josh Kronfeld
8. Zinzan Brooke
9. Justin Marshall
10. Andrew Mehrtens
11. Jonah Lomu
12. Walter Little
13. Frank Bunce
14. Jeff Wilson
15. Christian Cullen

16. Norm Hewitt
17. Richard Loe
18. Todd Blackadder
19. Taine Randell
20. Graeme Bachop
21. Grant Fox
22. John Kirwan

So its pretty much the '96/'97 team with some oldies on the bench.

Here is my '00s side for comparison.

1. Greg Somerville
2. Anton Oliver
3. Carl Hayman
4. Chris Jack
5. Ali Williams
6. Jerry Collins
7. Richie McCaw
8. Rodney So'oialo
9. Justin Marshall
10. Dan Carter
11. Joe Rokocoko
12. Aaron Mauger
13. Tana Umaga
14. Doug Howlett
15. Christian Cullen

16. Keven Mealamu
17. Kees Meeuws.
18. Brad Thorn
19. Marty Holah
20. Byron Kelleher
21. Carlos Spencer
22. Ma'a Nonu

How amazing would this match-up be!!

Embarassed Smile

90's team would kick the 00's team butts...though Cullen v Cullen would be a great matchup to watch Very Happy
