    I was going to argue that Tim Pickup should be your 5/8 based on my sepia coloured memories of him at Manly in the mid-60's. Then I saw John Ballesty was your first choice and I can only but agree.

    Shehadie off the bench? That's a big call. I would have thought he'd be in the starting XV.

    Hey WarChest being from Brisbane I don't know much about Marist Canberra's 1st XV. Would be able to tell me what Phil Yuen's story is? As an Asian Australian rugby player I'd love to know about a fellow brother who is highly regard to the point that he is named in his schools all time 1st XV.

    Here is a crack at Newington.

    15: Ben Volavola Fiji
    14: Peter Jorgenson Wallaby
    13: Taane Milne now league
    12: Tepai Moorea now league
    11: Lachlan Turner Wallaby
    10: Scott Bowen Wallaby
    9: Nick Farr Jones Wallaby
    8: David Pusey Super 15
    7: Allan Cameron Wallaby
    6: Hugh Roach Waratah
    5: Graham Macdougall Wallaby
    4: Adam Byrnes Super 15
    3: Michael Alaalatoa Super 15 or Roy Prosser Wallaby
    2) Phil Kearns Wallaby
    1) Allan Alaalatoa Wallaby or Stuart Macdougall Wallaby

    Peter Jorgenson debateable as he played all his junior rugby at New and his senior rugby at Joeys. Roach out of position but has played flanker and should be in side.

    Matthew Dowling '92 (Waratahs) would make a good fullback.

    He was a machine at school level, 2 years in the Aus schools and possible some honours post school. Liam O'Connor at 10/12 ahead of Baden for me.
