DC, Hayden Parker, Colin Slade, Tom Taylor, Lima Sopoaga, Ihaia West and Jimmy Gopperth aren't currently under NZRU contracts so are therefore are ineligible. They aren't going to remove that rule for a third-choice First Five.
I assume Jordie B, Ryan Crotty and TJP are already in the squad, but could at a push play there against Canada or Namibia. So the poll is about a specialist three-choice First Five Eight.
My vote went for Mitchell Hunt. Part of the winning Crusaders set up. 35 Super Caps. Kicks goals and can drop goals. Knows how to close a game out. World Rugby Junior Champion. Can cover fullback. Organised and composed, cool in pressure situations.
Sorry Sparky, but the fact that you saw fit to mention these guys is hilarious to me. The only player even up to it is Lima and even then he's probably been out of the set up too long to slot back in, fitness wise etc.
LOL West......LMAO Gopperth......
