The time is drawing near and everyone is giving it their all in the 6 Nations in order to be on the plane to Australia. There will be a few surprises and disappointments as there are every 4 years.

My starting 22 based on current form and combinations is as follows:

15. Leigh Halfpenny
14. Sean Maitland
13. Brian O’Driscoll
12. Brad Barritt
11. Chris Ashton
10. Jonny Wilkinson
9. Ben Youngs
8. Ryan Jones (c)
7. Justin Tipuric
6. Chris Robshaw
5. Paul O’Connell (I’m assuming he’ll be fit to tour)
4. Richie Gray
3. Adam Jones
2. Richard Hibbard
1. Gethin Jenkins

16. Dylan Hartley
17. Dan Cole
18. Joe Launchbury
19. Tom Wood
20. Greig Laidlaw
21. Jonothan Sexton
22. Manu Tuilagi

Select your own 22 as this is just my opinion…

    How do you see him in the team? I thought he retired from internationals?

  • @Uli (Comment 2) : Anybody who qualifies for one of the Home Unions can be selected, even if not playing international rugby, and he’s been in amazing form.

  • Wow Sean Maitland? Hasn’t he got a NZ passport? How about Tiaan Strause? He hasn’t got a Lions Blazer…

  • Hope he has a long career in Scotland-he’s a very good player. Wonder why Rob Diack never made the cut in ireland.

    We will see stander playing in. Ire Green soon…
