Only one of the games from the weekend was an official test match, but let’s throw together a team of the week anyway, just for fun.
Just one Australian and three Argies have managed to sneak in between the two obvious front runners from Ellis Park this week.
It was hard to find room for any Argentine players, but a couple managed to make the cut in the end. A little tough maybe on a mostly decent Australia?
Not the greatest week for selections given the dire match in the Gold Coast, but we’ve managed to piece together a fully representative side.
Thankfully the predicted wet weather didn’t affect the play too much and we got some decent rugby, and with it some decent performances to choose from.
We could make this easy and just pick the entire All Black XV, but that wouldn’t be much fun, or very fair to some other standouts.
It was a dreadful week of weather, and consequently the rugby was nearly as awful. Nevertheless a team must be pulled from the wreckage.
Eight more games to comb through, but this looks like a pretty reasonable offering for this week’s selection. Fullback was the tough one…
After eight grueling matches it’s finally time to unveil last weekend’s team. Is this the first time ever an All Black hasn’t made the side?
Two whole teams virtually discounted themselves from being selected making things a bit easier, the rest balanced out the side nicely in the final round’s selection.
