Uncapped XV



  • Just for fun name the best XV who have not been capped

    My best guess follows, completely off the top of my head ... please allow I've had a wine ... or two ... and have not thought too deeply ... 🙂

    15 Havili
    14 Buckman
    13 Goodhue
    12 Faiane
    11 Nanai
    10 Mounga
    9 Weber (injured ... Enari, Tcubed, Taumateine, Christie, Hall, Drummond ... AN Other ... )
    8 Ioane
    7 Karpick (? Am I missing someone here ... ?)
    6 Seu
    5 Cowley -Tuioti
    4 Strange
    3 Moli
    2 Aumua (has Coltman been capped? Rickirickirickirickitelli? )
    1 ummm ... Hodgeman ... ?

    This a result of 2 mins of thinking so please take on that basis.

    Who am I missing...?

    Edit: Weber capped so who at halfback? Added Hall, Christie and Drummond in no particular order



  • Havili, Bridge, Goodhue, Bateman, Mo'unga....

    Bridge ...

    Oh it's you ACTC ... 🙂

    I'd put in Blake Gibson and Scott Scrafton



  • Even if he wasn't injured, Weber got a cap against Samoa the other year.

    Thanks Unco

    So looking for a 9 ...



  • So need a 9 please.

    Am fence sitting eith a long list there. (And added Hall, Christie and Drummond in no particular order.)

    What is the collective wisdom of TSF?



  • 15 Billy Tell
    14 booboo
    13 ACT Crusader
    12 mimic
    11 Unco
    10 Crucial
    09 Stargazer
    08 KiwiMurph (c)
    07 Duluth
    06 Chris B.
    05 Chester Draws
    04 cgrant
    03 rotated
    02 Bones
    01 Pot Hale (project player)

    Based on what's posted here by people in the know, this team should master tactics down to a tee. Not sure about the stats on the training paddock though - a carefully guarded secret.



  • @Billy-Tell said in Uncapped XV:

    14 booboo

    Jersey number greater than 8 (and not 16-20.) You can get banned for that sort of insult.



  • A few names to throw in the mix:

    Tom Franklin
    Jordan Taufua
    Brad Shields
    Matt Duffie
    Sam Nock

    Melani Nanai 🎻



  • Based solely on test capped status, so injured players may be included;

    15-David Havili
    14-George Bridge
    13-Jack Goodhue
    12-Matt Proctor
    11-Vince Aso
    10-Richie Mo'unga
    9-Byrn Hall

    8-Jordan Taufua
    7-Blake Gibson
    6-Brad Shields
    5-Cowley-Tuioti
    4-Tom Franklin
    3-Atu Moli
    2-Ben Funnell
    1-Ben May



  • @booboo by the same token, jersey number less than a 9 for me? I don't mix with those overblown piston wristed gibbons. I leave the ruck inspecting up to those that need it.

    Edit: oh and as for 9s...the baabaas 9 was the most impressive uncapped 9 for me so far this year.



  • Lousi was the standout lock by the end of SR. So my second pair would be Lousi - Franklin. If he hadn't been injured, Fatialofa would be in the mix too.



  • My XV :
    Havili
    Duffie
    Goodhue
    Buckman
    Nanai
    Mo'unga
    Hall / Drummond / Christie
    Ioane
    Gibson
    Shields
    Lousi / Fatialofa
    Franklin
    Moli
    Riccitelli
    Lienert Brown



  • Yep I think you may have something with Lousi.
    I'd add Boshier at 7 and Tiaan Falcon and Mitch Hunt at 10

    Perofeta an option at 10?



  • Surely Mo'unga is the most credentialed of our uncapped 10s right now? If I was picking an uncapped team, he'd be my first five. He has served almost the perfect apprenticeship to move on to play for the ABs, winning a SR title and multiple provincial titles.



  • Banks at 10. Scrafton at lock. Lowe, Nanai, Duffie wings. Gibson at 7.



    1. Lienert Brown
    2. Ben Funnell
    3. Atu Moli
    4. Fatialofa
    5. Scrafton
    6. Shields
    7. Gibson
    8. Ioane
    9. Hall
    10. Banks
    11. Duffie
    12. Buckman
    13. Goodhue
    14. Lowe
    15. Havili
    16. Greg Pleasants-Tate
    17. Pauliasi Manu/Mitchell Graham
    18. Siate Tokolahi
    19. Tom Franklin
    20. Kara Pryor
    21. Weber
    22. Mo'unga
    23. Nanai


  • @Billy-Tell Captaincy.. I am honoured sir.

    I see a lot of Nanai in here and a distinct lack of Michael Collins - wish one of you were in the Blues coaching set up...
