Well after enjoying the spectacle of a night at Jade Stadium watching the Canterbury boys win the NPC final the Rugbyheads lads (well, AT, DH, SG and Jules at least) got together and over a few of the sponsers product came up with our pick of the touring team of 30 to go to Ireland, Scotland and Argentina next week.

Here's our squad, as expected it's dominated by the two top teams in this years NPC, Otago and Canterbury.

Let us know your team on the Discussion board!

Let us know what you think!

Not a bad squad boys, looks very much like the one that won the NPC tonight!

I'm am surprised you didn't select Toddy in there though, my sources tell me that John Mitchell asked the NZRFU to buy out his contract with the Scottish club so he could stay in NZ and captain the All Blacks again...
