As the latest developments in Australian rugby become more and more farcical (although at least we have an interim CEO now, we decided we need something lighthearted to take our minds off the shambles. Something where looking back and reminiscing about the good old days is actually relevant.
A few weeks ago we asked you to pick the team the Wallabies should field when they play their next Test (whenever that is), now we’re going to flip that idea on its head and pick a Wallabies dream team of players who wore the green and gold during the Super Rugby era.
We’ll do the voting in batches, one group of positions at a time, starting with the front-rowers today and working our way through the entire XV and then the bench.
As with all the positions, we’ve provided a range of options for you to pick from, from the heyday of the late 90s and early 2000s right up to modern times. That said, if we’ve left out someone you’d like to see make the team, you can always throw in your own ‘captain’s call’.
Keep in mind that we’re only considering performances during the Super rugby era, so for those who played for the Wallabies right through the 1990s, try to ignore their form from pre-1996.
Other than that, get stuck into picking the men at the front of the scrum, tell us who your selections are in the comments, and we’ll be back tomorrow to pick the locks.
