A bit of nonsense!

no match to preview or review because of the weather. so I came up with the most unlikely team selection I could think of.

The Unlikely Lads

Not having a match to preview or review set me thinking about what I could write to keep the site 'alive'? 

Well, some recent selections, Nic Sestart at centre etc. and Michael Stupple being listed as either playing at 8 or Centre, set me thinking about what position other players could end up in. 

Not much fun in putting the obvious together so I've opted for the most unlikely 15 I could come up with.  So, here goes.....

  1. Sean Tomes - an imposing site for any front row to face
  2. Nic Sestaret - might find himself 'hanging' from his props as hookers used to
  3. Chris Bentley - a book end to ST
  4. Bryan Rennie - Plenty of beef and power in the legs, good hands for line-outs
  5. Emyr Lewis - should be quick to the breakdown and good hands
  6. Clive Stuart-Smith - can use all those 'niggling' skills from his 9 play
  7. Haydn Thomas - as with CSS
  8. Josh Matavesi - good hands and running at the opposition
  9. Chris Budgen - speed of pass is the key here as well as sniping round the scrum
  10. Tom Johnson - good hands, great running but not too sure about his kicking
  11. James Scaysbrook - good hands and likely to go looking for the ball
  12. Tom Hayes - good hands and power to break the line
  13. Chad Slade - as with TH
  14. Brett Sturgess - speed down the wing
  15. Andy Miller - would be keen to run the ball back, tiger in defence

I could almost talk myself into believing this side would work Undecided

What do you think and who would you chose as your most unlikely 15?

I have wondered seriously about suggesting Tom Johnson at 12 to give us elusiveness and power at that position!!

I'd like to see Budgen out on the wing, would give us that bit of pace we need (Sm23)

Well. I'm flattered to be in such august company, but I rather think that the selectors might want to take another look. I think that my rugby skills would be bettered by pretty much anybody else in the club. Step forward Rosie H-H!
