Yeah, he did do that a lot.

My fav Lomu memory ever was at the 99 WC, we got a late game penalty 5 metres out, goldie had the ball and went over to talk to lomu who then backed up about 10 metres and got ready to run like a sprinter, he started charging forward and the opposition (not sure who) had like 5 guys bunched up to try to stop him, goldie tapped the ball and passed the other way to someone else who breezed through to score...

Funny thought: Did Lomu actually know he was a dummy? Very Happy

No it didn't Smile

He was a sad case of a player who decayed horribly towards the end of their career...

Exactly - because they lose money if all their star players are away all the time.

Nah there's training and stuff that they're taken out for too.

And tours usually last about 5-6 weeks, so they'd miss heaps of games. And don't forget that many of the clubs compete in 2 comps (heineken cup, top 14, european cup, and a couple of other I cannot remember...)

If all the best players were there, then that would such a fricken awesome game.

For now, I'd be happy with an annual 3N / 6N winners game (i.e. the winner of each competition plays each other...

Or even a good old fashioned Probables vs Possibles ABs trial Smile

Maori v Samoans would go better than Maori vs A since the A would have a natural advantage of a wider range of players to choose from - plus some form of draft would have to happen since many players would be eligible for both teams...

Oh yea now that would be fun to watch alright...

Got me thinking too, about the contribution Samoan players have made to NZ rugby over the years. Hows this for an all time Samoa/NZ 1st XV:

15-Mils Muliaina
14-Tana Umaga (c)
13-Joe Stanley
12-Ma'a Nonu
11-Bryan Williams
10-Stephen Bachop
9-Graeme Bachop
8-Rodney So'oialo
7-Michael Jones
6-Jerry Collins
5-Filipo Levi
4-Ross Filipo
3-Olo Brown
2-Keven Mealamu
1-Neemia Tialata

Admittedly a couple of these guys are only part Samoan in heritage but its still an impressive lineup of current and former All Black talent, including a couple of the all time greats of our game.

I dont think any other two rugby nations in the world share the same special sort of relationship that Samoa and New Zealand enjoy and long may it continue.
