    Wallaby 11, 14 & 15 pecking order

    Almost half way through the Super 14 and the as the title suggests, what do you think the Wallaby pecking order for the back 3 is?

    well, potentiall bias, but IMO the two best wingers in Australia up until now have been Ioane and Hynes, best fullback is to hard to pick, each player represents a significantly different playing style.

    based on form Digby would be a walk up starter

    Shep showed what he is capable of in Canberra, needs to get on top of those injuries

    tuqiri!! no way, im usually a tuqiri fan, but he has been playing shit..

    His playing selfish football at the moment, he bombed a try on the weekend because he didnt use his support, him and turner let in another try becuase they both went for the same player.

    Maybe its a case of him trying to hard at the moment, but whatever it is he is playing the worst football i have seen him play in many years.

    he's played crap his entire career but that unfortunately hasnt stopped his selection

    but if tuqiri isnt chosen then i reckon Sheps 15, Hynes 11 and Digby 14

    the Tahs games I have seen (about 2 full games) he hasn't seen alot of ball, possibly why the rubbish/selfish play? I'm not usually one to defend him......

    He will get picked regardless, given what the ARU pays him

    ... Who's on the bench if that's how it is?

    Digby is a given, Cameron to 15, I haven't seen much of Hynes but it sounds like he's been good. Drew and Turner vieying out for the bench? (Did I leave out my bias there?)

    playing selfish at the moment?

    realistically he has been a selfish player since he came to union. and possibly before, i never watched him play leauge.

    if he thinks there is a minute chance of him making a break/scoring, he will NOT pass the ball. regardless of field posistion. he's done it in the tahs countless times. and ive seen him do it quite a few times when he is playing for the wallbies.
    its unfortunate that he is paid so much. because he will be goven a wallabies jumper regardless of how he plays, like Jargs said.

    the Sharks coach said in his post-match interview that he thinks Hynes is the form winger in the comp..

    well if thats going to be the team, then surely it would have to be Drew on the bench.

    probably a utility type player like AAC for the bench, can play in the centres and the back 3

    yeah AAC is probaly more likely actually, depends if they have two playmakers on the field, if they have Giteau-Barnes they wont need another playmaker on the bench. Which means they could realistically go for a 5-2 bench.

    ah, probably getting a bit ahead of myself though

    i'm interested to see more of coops in the latter half of the season. ive been a bit lax in paying attention so far.
    he impressed me with his courage(more than anything) last year. and i would like to see how he had developed since

    TOCC you can pick the in form Fullback it wont kill you... Ioane is definitely an inform winger... Here I'll help...

    Shep…. broken
    JOC…. Novice
    SNK…. Going north
    McLinden…. new comer to rugby
    or Gerrard.... the inform fullback in the S14 thus far...

    Gerard fat and slow. If picked will only be a fill in at 15

    You also left out Gerard potentially heading north as well
