Avengers: Endgame had the biggest movie opening in history of $1.2 Billion. We took the popular Marvel characters to create the Avengers XV. Hopefully they can survive the snap and win a World Cup for the Green and Gold.
The Front Row
1. Loosehead Prop
Drax the Destroyer – Big body, not too bright but strong and tough. Never wears a shirt despite his teammates all being ripped. Will definitely say something funnier than Joe Marler
Doctor Strange (Stephen Strange) – Bit small to play hooker but he is a master of the mystic arts (aka the front row), and despite his shaky hands the line out could always be straight with a cheeky spell.
3. Tighthead Prop
Hulk (Bruce Banner) – He’s big, he’s angry and they always struggle to find a uniform that fits him. He probably played back row as a kid but got too big and slow so got told to eat some pies and become a prop.
Groot – No need to lift a bloke in a line out that can out grow his opposites. Only problem is his line out calls will consist of I and Am and Groot, makes the moves a bit predictable. May need to sub in Ant-man/Giant-Man
Korg – He’s made of rock (perishable rocks) and he is a kiwi so that means he automatically starts. He’s the bloke that would make a big tackle and then pick you up and say sorry bro.
The Back Row
6. Blindside Flanker
Thor – Wishes he was a back because he’s too pretty to be a forward, though loves to think he’s the strongest on the team. Doesn’t mind the dirty work and doesn’t mind a bit of show boating. Adds some height at line out time
7. Openside Flanker
Winter Soldier (Bucky Barnes) – Nothing would help hold up a scrum like a metal arm. It would also help him be strong over the breakdown. Being a super soldier would be a valuable asset.
8. Number 8
Captain America (Steve Rodgers) © – Obvious choice for captain, he’s a super soldier who does what’s right even when he knows he’ll get in trouble. Always has has he’s team mate backs, even when they are wrong, and his weapon of choice is a shield, so defence is a big part of his game. Probably the only one that would call the Ref sir.
Spider-man (Peter Parker)- Hes tough, smart and doesn’t shut up in a fight. Doesn’t back down from the big guys and has a strong relationship with his 10. His spidey sense would help around the break down to evade defenders, and would have no trouble taking the ball out of the air.
Iron Man (Tony Stark) – Self described as a Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist, sure sounds like a No.10. Definitely got the smarts of a playmaker, can be quite selfish but isn’t afraid to take the game on and hit the line. Definitely better facial hair than Bernard Foley
12. Inside Centre
Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff) – Second playmaker with a trick or two up her sleeve. Good at the one on one tackles and always brings down her opponent, even if she goes high.
13. Outside Centre
Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) – Definitely has the one punch power to break the line as a crash ball option. Doesn’t blink when the big guys come at her.
Black Panther (T’Challa) – The speed on this dude is almost super human, with the ability to run around or run over his opponents.
Falcon (Sam Wilson) – No Superpowers no problem. It always helps to have a flyer on the wing. Strong aerial game.
Hawkeye (Clint Barton) – Only player more accurate than Hayden Parker, Hawkey never misses, imagine the accuracy from a clearing kick, or set shot, or drop goal. As a last line of defence it might seem like a weak call, but he knows he’s only human but that doesn’t stop him from trying take on the big dogs.
