POLL: Which five outside backs should make the All Blacks RWC squad?

Most of the selections in the All Blacks RWC squad can probabaly be locked in....Richie...DC....big Brad Thorn...etc etc...

The most hotly contested spots are the likely 5 places available to cover the wings and fullback.

So who will it be?

Wellingtonians will be plumping for Cory Jane and Hosea Gear...the selectors seem to LOVE Isaia Toeava....Sitiveni Sivivatu is the incumbent....Israel Dagg should be there, but will be fe fit enough and back to form?????....Mils is locked in...but what about Richard Kkahui...and does Zac Guildford provide more than just pace..???? Richard Kahui has had a bad run of injuries but provides options...and Ben Smith must be knocking on the door....

My five would be Muliana, Dagg, Guildford, Jane, Kahui...

What about yours?


Im a huge fan of Jane right now, he had an amazing game against SA, Muliaina and Jane are the best combo since a fricken happy meal!


My picks are


Muliaina is a definite, Gear is a left wing specialist, Dagg and Kahui (have been injured, however both performed well in their ITM cup games over the weekend), and Guildford because I think he can pull finger during the RWC and could be a surprise addition for our competitors.

Kahui could be interchanged between back three and the midfield backup for Smith, SBW and Nonu, so possibly Jane could squeeze in their somewhere


Jane for sure! I think when you combine him, Mils and Conrad, you're going to see some explosive set moves and off the cuff rugby come to fruition. Sivivatu has been playing well too, and we need some speed in the likes of Guilford. The final spot I think Grahame can decide, but those definitely would be my picks for the squad.
