    An attempt to recreate State of Origin would be poor and would likely be panned. I reckon play a game between Aus born Australian players and the overseas born players. Cheika picks the two teams. Wessels and Gibson coach the overseas born while Stiles and McGahan coach the Aussie borns.

    Of the starting 15 vs England:
    Moore, Kepu, Pocock, Timani, Kuridrani, Naivalu and DHP would be in the overseas team.

    How good would it be to see a bunch of potential Wallabies clash heads?

    Question: If Coleman is Tasmanian, does he count as overseas?

    They might not want to do this, as the overseas-born team might be too good!

    Not a bad side for the Aus borners.

    It might answer a few selection humdingers too. I wait the day when Mumm is dropped for good.

    there would be, almost by definition, doubts over the availability of Wallabies players.

    ...The Rebels, Force and Brumbies might have severe reservations about releasing their players for origin duty [QUOTE=Emu;421479]

    Make it 5 a side then.
