World Cup Draft

    Weeman selects Aaron Smith (he personal messaged me his selection since he knew I would be online at this time).
  2. Howe JHF Howe

    Duane Vermuelen

    You can team up with me if you like.

    I'll pick Richie McCaw, I think. Scores a reasonable amount of tries for a flanker. Not sure how many of the "easy" games he'll get to freeload in though.

    Can I pick two 13s and play one of them at 12 how strict are we being here?
  5. Howe JHF Howe

    That's the sort of thing international sides do anyway so it's fine. The rule is don't take the piss.

    In the 6N draft Weeman ran with

    9 Rhys Webb
    10 Greig Laidlaw
    12 Owen Farrell
    13 Wesley Fofana

    aka two 9s, a 10 playing 12 and a 12 playing 13. That was borderline pisstake but still allowed. So stay on the right side of that and you're okay.

    To be fair, while I definitely accept I was trying to game the system, I don't think that's too unreasonable a lineup in hindsight.

    Both Laidlaw and Farrell have played at the positions I selected them in, and I'm sure Fofana could play 13.

    But yeah, basically don't be a dick about it.

    Conrad Smith
    Jesse Kreil (spelling?)

    David Pocock
  10. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    I had planned to take him next.

    I'm gonna have to admit to struggling a bit in comparing Southern Hemisphere players that I've seen a lot of with their Northern Hemisphere counterparts that I've seen very little of since the last world cup. It would help if Sky at least showed 6 Nations replays.
  12. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    Agreed. I went out of my way to watch Wales vs England in the 6 Nations and found a replay 48 hours after the game.

    Worth getting the rugby channel for that alone.

    But who's to say whether Sky will continue to retain the rights? There's no way I'm paying that significant premium for the Rugby Channel just to end up with the Currie Cup.

    Subscribe just before the 6 nations and cancel if they lose the rights. The only flaw in my advice is that it takes half an hour to get through on the phones to place any type of order.

    Willie Le Roux
  16. Weeman27bob BE Force

    Juan Imhoff
  17. Alex AJ O'Driscoll

    Bryan Habana
  18. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Jerome Kaino
  19. Rego RS Hutchinson

    I assume this continues till the final? So we're better off picking players from teams that'll make it past the group stages.
  20. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    I assume that as well rego but I wasn't going to ask in case others hadn't thought of that.
