Pundits & explayers all time XVs

Didn't see a consolidated thread. so to start with is Kobus Wiese’s "Perfect XV" from https://www.sarugbymag.co.za/kobuswiesesperfectxv1/
 Os du Randt
 Uli Schmidt
 Olo Brown
 Martin Johnson
 John Eales
 Michael Jones
 Ruben Kruger
 Zinzan Brooke
 Joost van der Westhuizen
 Naas Botha
 Jonah Lomu
 Frank Bunce
 Danie Gerber
 David Campese
 Andre Joubert

@antipodean Good team. Clearly I'd have McCaw, Carter and Cullen or Blanco ahead of Kruger, Botha and Joubert, but the rest of that team is credible.

Bit of a joke this one. Akona Ndungane's:
 Os du Randt
 John Smit
 Owen Franks
 Bakkies Botha
 Victor Matfield
 Richie McCaw
 Juan Smith
 Bob Skinstad
 Fourie du Preez
 Dan Carter
 Bryan Habana
 Tana Umaga
 Jaque Fourie
 Odwa Ndungane
 Jason Robinson
I'm sure half that team have a losing percentage.

What’s the problem? The way I see it he’s picked a bunch of really good players plus Bobby Skinstad and his twin brother

You just described the problem. It's called "Perfect XV". Smit, Skinstad, du Preez, Fourie and Nudungane aren't in the discussion.

If looking at the last 1015 years I could see a case for du Preez and even Fourie. The others are just parochial choices.

Isn't saying that about the bold, like saying Richie isn't in the conversation because of Jones?

Fair comment  still parochial.
