    Definitely have Henson over Flutey and Martyn Williams over Wallace

    I'd say Ryan Jones for Heaslip, Ford for Flannery and Peel for Phillips but they're harder to justify at present.

    6 Welsh players are enough I think!

    what a crock...

    They should win against Lions and Cheetahs the two easiest teams in the Super 14... everyone else has managed to that.
    The Bulls will give them a game but The B Lions should manage to win that.

    Hey Crowley How about Western Prov.. are they still running good backs? How will they go? used to be a great team in Charl Vissers Day... he could fly. We don't see curry cup now.

    WP are still a decent side, with probably the most young players to choose from. They have a huge talent pool down there.
    I'd tip the Bulls to beat any side except the actual starting 15.

    please, henson is overrated and no one is playing better than heaslip this year. the lions should be judged on current form alone.

    the captain pick will be an interesting one.

    Okay this would mean wales would hav about 9/15

    If they have so many good players, why didn't they win the 6 nations?

    Why didn't NZ win the last World Cup?

    ... so why debate the test team when the first test is over 3 months away then?

    My picks are assuming that everyone's fit and on form - there's no other way of doing it.

    Why isn't Britain in the World Cup.
    One Govt One Country One Team each seems fair or is it that the gentry still think they set the rules...probably do?

    Are you suggesting breaking the one sport in which Ireland is represented by both the North and the South?

    The only changes I'd make would be to drop Croft to the bench - although I think he's awesome - move Wallace to 6, and put Williams in at 7.

    I'd also be tempted to put Mears in over the other hookers... I just love his attacking play.

    BOD for captain for me.

    Not at all but I've always wondered why the sports world allows Great Britain to have four teams when it choses. The Olympics don't allow it.
    I hate politics in sport but I'd love to see Great Britain play as one sporting Nation more often or is it in fact a case that the Kingdom is not as united as it makes out.

    I'd love to see The United Kingdom of Great Britain play in the FIFA World Cup. One Country!

    Until Great Britain gives back The North I'm afraid you can't have a United Ireland team.
