If ever there was a dopey question it's who would fill the No9 spot. I'm stunned that, at the minute he has only 88% support! The other 12% can only be votes from folks who've just discovered rugby in the past two years.

And, yes, if there's no Paddy it's a disgrace. And wouldn't you just love him to win by a mile.

The Tele will probably offer Payne at 13 :roll:

Its a bit of a nonsense really.

How many positions have genuine hard decisions? Maybe 3... and I'm not even sure about two of those.

- THP (Botha, Afoa)
- number8 (P3, bigNuck & MC)
- FB (Terblanche, Payne, Piatau)


Apart from those, are the others not straightforward?


For what its worth, my selection would be (with realistic alternatives in brackets):

Court
Best
Afoa (Botha)
Muller
Henderson
Ferris
Henry
Coetzee (bigNuck)

Pienaar
Jackson
Trimble
Wallace
Cave
Bowe
Payne (Piatau)

Says a lot when you see who the other two options are.

And to make matters worse. Paddy should still be playing for UR alongside Ruan, marcel and Hendo. Ruan AND Cooney.

Wouldn't have Afoa or Piatau near that team. Carpetbaggers.

These days it's all about who performs best on the pitch, not loyalty. Afoa's in on that basis and that basis alone.

For No10, I've a wee soft spot for iHumph but Paddy still gets the vote by a distance.

When do the polls close? Do I have to stay up all night waiting for the result?

Paddy getting nearly 90% of the vote. At least his supporters still reckon he is the best available.

I'm surprised Burns and Humphreys are so close. I'd give my right arm for an outhalf of Humphreys quality right now.
