Season End - Who's your top squad? Empty

Well the Rugby year is almost at an end and won't be reignited until around February with the Super 14.

So from that, who would be your top 22 squad for your country? Anyone who earned a cap this year is eligible (so those who only played the Munster game for the ABs still count) but the must have taken the field (though I don't think that excludes anyone) - so those in the squads, or even on the bench, but didn't actually play do not count (excluding Taniela Moa for example).

For the ABs:

1. Woodcock
2. Hore
3. Sommerville
4. Thorn
5. Williams
6. Kaino
7. McCaw (c)
8. So'oialo
9. Cowan
10. Carter
11. Rokocoko
12. Nonu
13. Smith
14. Gear
15. Muliaina

16. Mealamu
17. Tialata
18. Filipo
19. Read
20. Weepu
21. Kahui
22. Toeava


Combination of personal preferences (notably Gear) and overall form (i.e. Cowan dropped off badly the last couple of tests, but his earlier tour form and 3N form warranted his stay).

17. Tialata
18. Boric
19. Thompson
20. Weepu
21. Kahui
22. Toeava

Pantherus I pretty much agree just made some changes on the bench.

I do like boric over fillipo and Thompson is a good man to have on the bench.

Fair enough - though I've never rated Boric at an point this year (he really was the "best of what's left" in the first place) and Read I think earned a place over Thomson - though agree that Thomson's probably more versatile - Messam even more so.

Yea I would put Messam on the bench instead of Read/Thomson and give the starting HB to Weepu with Cowan benched. OTher then that no other changes.

Weepu deserves the starting spot now, but Cowan's earlier form warrants his inclusion in this context.

Messam / Read / Thomson would all work well on the bench - really a personal preference there...
