Semi-finalists: who would you poach from the other teams?

Post by jabberwocky »

Not necessarily the best player, but the player who would most strengthen your side from the other three teams.

For England, Barrett I suppose - or any of the scrum-halves.

Smith every day of the week, 9 is easily our biggest weakness.

If I had to take one from each

Vunipola, Marx, Wainwright

It would mean we would lose though, as those players don't have the auraTM that makes the All Blacks apparently frightening

Faf for the bench.

Kolbe would be a menace in the AB backline. (more-so)

I bet you would. In a court bouillon, in front of a burning cross. Sickening.

Despite his best performance in a while by DDA against Japan, I’d say the Boks’ biggest weakness is at 12 and 15.

I’d take the starting 12 and 15 of any of the other 3 teams over DDA and Willie at this point.

We need a ball carrier in the backrow so Vermulen fits the bill.

Given our concerns at centre, Lienert-Brown would be nice about now too.

Limiting it to one per team, I'd take Mako in place of Moody, PSTD over S Barrett, and a fit Liam Williams for Bridge.

Even in your own head this must be utter wank banter.

Aaron Smith walks into any of the other teams. I find de Klerk a bit over-hyped (the blonde bias thing that Burger enjoyed), thought NZ exposed him in Game 1. Not a great back-foot scrum half. And even with time, the frequency with which he box kicks right over his own shoulder behind him by mistake... :blush:

I wouldn't pick any Englishmen to strengthen our side but I would poach a few to weaken theirs - Farrell, Itoje and Curry to start with.

No, it was fine up there.

Let me put it another way... No Welsh player would make a NZ or SA team at present. They are even well catered for in AWJs position.

I expect lots of crosskicks to North tomorrow so might well think differently afterwards

Just looking at the Welsh, you think the Boks would pick more of them? Liam Williams yes, when fit. Halfpenny too, probably.

Works the other way around too. We’d probably take your Vermullen, Etzebeth and a prop. Two evenly matched teams.

I’d rather just have faletau, Navidi and Liam available though.
