RWC Team

The RWC goes on and with it my promise to pick a dream team every Monday. SO here it is:

1. Andrew Sheridan - awesomely assertive game
2. Anton Oliver - his best game as an AB? Lineout 100% + strong with the ball in hand
3. Carl Hayman - still undefeated
4. Ali Williams - an outstanding lineout performance and willing around the park
5. Victor Matfield - still the king and great ball to set up try
6. Jerry Collins - no one better at this World Cup @ 6
7. Richie McCaw - perhaps a little below his best but still the world's best
8. Sisa Koyamaibole - massive game getting across the advantage line
9. Fourie Du Preez - the outstanding halfback although Pinochet played well also
10. Johnny Wilkinson - sticks in my craw but HE kicked his team to a win
11. Vilamoni Delasau - electric - a game breaker who's been doing it for a few games now
12. Francois Steyn - the mid field back of the tournament
13. Matthew Tait - his team won and there's no one else
14. Takudzwa Ngwenya - the outstanding try of the tournament one on one against Habana
15. Percy Montgomery - consistent in a field of also rans - Mils had no chance to challenge

Key selection feature: no Frenchies. After all, not a world beater among them.
