Who are some players that should have never represented your country in rugby union?

For The All Blacks I think:

Scott Hamilton
Caleb Ralph
Casey Laulala

all 3 got a Black jersey because of them being Cantabs. No other reason there was much better options then these guys.

Ben Atiga, he was a huge suprise for me during the World Cup in 03, shouldnt have been there. A man by the name of Christian Cullen was very capable of going instead of him.

If he got some decent game time he would - but he's just ALWAYS injured so never gets any decent time on the field to get up to speed and really show his wares. Wasted talent unfortunately.

Hendo - nah - Reuben "Captain Invisible" Thorn was always just extra baggage for the team.

Hey Pantherus just out of interest, have you ever posted at a Forum called The Silver Fern?

Ah k no worries.

I used to post on The Silver Fern a few years back and thought the name rung a bell. The Invisible Man was also commonly used to describe Reuban Thorne on there haha

Hehe - well it IS a fairly good description of the man. I heard it from a woman at the gym I was chatting to.

I have always refered to Caleb Ralph as 'the Nothing Man' and from then players in other codes have been known as the Caleb Ralph, e.g. Logan Swann the Caleb Ralph of New Zealand Rugby League.

lol all 3 cantabs, they should get the all blacks top. The reason why all aucklanders get picked even though they got like 2nd to last in anzc and mid to late in the table in the super14 is becuase of Graham Henry. (a aucklander and use to coach auckland) Casey Lulala is 10 times better than isia toveva.

Toeava gets the nod ahead of Laulala for his utility value. As a specialist centre, Yes - I agree that Laulala is better than Toeava. But Toeava is a very competent Fullback as well (as he has shown) and can also play wing or 2nd 5 if needed. Laulala cannot do any of that, and is frankly well behind Smith and Kahui as Centre - so he misses out.

Laulala is a classic case of a player who shows good form at Super 14 level, but failed to replicate that form at International level.

SportsLegend you are obviously just another one of those one eyed Cantab supporters, Toeava is way more versatile than Laulala as Pantherus pointed out. I cant stand Auckland Rugby sides but there is not one AB from Auckland that doesnt deserve there spot.

Oh and let me guess SportsLegend you prefer Dingo Deans to King Henry??

I prefer Deans, but I agree Toeava is better than Lualala on the international stage.

Yeah at the moment what about the 80s and 90s were they the best team then?

every team has a cycle currently it is canterburys turn but that doesnt mean they have all the best players.
But I guess you dont rate the likes of conrad smith,joe rocokoko, ma'a Nonu, jimmy cowan, siviatu, mils muliaina which is basically the ab's backline plus carter.
