    If '95 to date, we could probably draft 22s. I'm in, ftr.
  3. Arheiner SIA Yates


    22s are doable but in the end it'll just drag it out and people will lose interest anyway so easier to just do 15.
  4. Jabba HJ Bots

    Yeah that's my concern
  5. Gazza GJ Weaver

    In and do 15
  6. Howe JHF Howe

    yeah ok
  7. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    I'll enter but I will suck as my rugby watching spans 1978-1990 and 2006-2014
    So haven't seen any late 1990s early 2000s- Christian who? How do you spell Tana?

    But I like a good draft.

    Also vastly prefer drafting 15.

    I also like the some form of rugby rule as I then can take Gillies Kaka if I wish.

    I'll be rubbish but what the hell.
  9. The Boy Brumby ZJ Brumby

    I'll give it a go.

    Martin Johnson qualifies, yeah? Played for NZ Schools and that. :ninja:
  10. Jabba HJ Bots

    Ok if anyone else wants in they can be tagged on the end. Only picking 15 players ftr

    There were 8 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

    Snake draft, rinse and repeat the whole way through
  11. Arheiner SIA Yates

    Daniel Carter

    Not a bad flyhalf pool around in this but might as well get it out the way.
  12. Eds E Ames

    Would love to team up with someone who wants to pick a team of favourites.
  13. Starris ER Starris

    Assumed he'd be the first picked.
  14. Arheiner SIA Yates

    Gave some consideration to others, but decided it was the safest option for building a team around.
  15. Hurricane JD Hurricane

  16. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Ahaha. I opened this thread last night and assumed Hurricane was referring to 99*. :facepalm:

    Anyway, I'll take Lomu.
  17. Arheiner SIA Yates


    Can we give him JJR anyway since he didn't specify?
  18. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    It would also piss off Ritchie as he hates the All Blacks.

    So why not?
  19. Jabba HJ Bots

    He can be the team manager
  20. Starris ER Starris

    Andrew Mehrtens
