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).
