leave a comment »

Here are Outside the Frame’s pick for the best team from the Tri-Nations for 2008:


  1. Tony Woodcock 
  2. Bismarck du Plessis
  3. Greg Somerville
  4. James Horwill
  5. Victor Matfield
  6. Rocky Elsom
  7. Richie McCaw (c)
  8. Rodney So’oialo
  9. Ricky Januarie
  10. Dan Carter
  11. Lote Tuqiri
  12. Jean de Villiers
  13. Stirling Mortlock
  14. Richard Kahui
  15. Mils Muliaina
  16. Andrew Hore
  17. CJ van der Linde
  18. Ali Williams
  19. Juan Smith
  20. Jimmy Cowan
  21. Matt Giteau
  22. Conrad Jantjes


Despite a few matches being very one-sided, overall the tournament was a very close affair with no team really dominating. As the winners of the series obviously the All Blacks are best represented with 10 players followed by 7 South Africans and 5 Australians. Richie McCAw had to be named captain for inspiring an All Black comeback in the tournament and for simply being the most influential player in world rugby today for his teammates, opposition players and of course the referees.
