Mitre 10 Cup form XV



  • A good number of young players have emerged (once again !) from the Cup so far. Which would be your XV ? Here is mine.

    15 Jordan (Tasman)
    14 Duffie (NH)
    13 Goosen (Wellington)
    12 Goodhue (Northland)
    11 Ennor (Canterbury)
    10 Mo'unga (Canterbury)
    9 Drummond (Canterbury)
    8 Whitelock (Canterbury) (I know he's now injured but he's been the best Nr.8 in the competition)
    7 ? (hard to select a player among these : Kirifi, Lentjies, Brown, Gibson, Boshier ...)
    6 Blackadder (Tasman)
    5 Lousi (Wellington)
    4 Tuipolutu (Auckland) (honorable mention to Dunshea and Cowley-Tuoti)
    3 Ala'alatoa (Manawatu) (Fidow ?)
    2 Funnell (Canterbury)
    1 Graham (Taranaki)



  • Not sure Goodhue has played 12 this year?



  • @barky1 yep, Ranger has been at 13 most of the season.



  • @taniwharugby Fair enough. That Aumua from Wellington looks handy at hooker



  • Macalai in contention for 11, Wright for 1 and Alaimalo would be pushing extremely hard for 15.



  • Ooops, I forgot Aumua. He's been huge on a few occasions.
    Alaimalo could win an Israel Folau lookalike contest. Not the finished product yet but very impressive (his try vs Otago was a beauty).
