Ok so boredom may be the reason for this post!
But somebody posted a Tykes 15 that played against Borders in 2003 and I that got me thinking.

This is just my opinion so be kind!

I decided to put my personal favourite 15 for the Tykes and for Carnegie. (Some may have played during both eras of course)

Love everyone's opinion.

Tykes
15 Dan Scarborough 14 Diego Albanese 13 Chris Bell 12 Braam Van Straaten 11 Andre Snyman 10 Gordon Ross 9 Alan Dickens 8 Alix Popham 7 Richard Parks 6 Cameron Mather 5 Tom Palmer 4 Stuart Hooper 3 Gavin Kerr 2 Mark Regan 1 Mike Shelley

Carnegie
15 Stevie McColl 14 Jonah Holmes 13 Pete Wackett 12 Fred Burdon 11 Tom Biggs 10 Joe Ford (Struggled with this one) 9 Craig Hampson 8 Ryan Burrows 7 Hendre Fourie 6 Richard Beck 5 Erik Lund 4 Marco Wentzel 3 Ben Harris 2 Mike Mayhew 1 Mike McDonald

I did struggle to think with a few of these and I'm sure I missed some obvious players.

Your Tykes team was before my time Sidestep so can't comment on that one.

I'd agree with the majority of your Carnegie team as well but, for me, I'd make the following swaps:

13 Burdon in for Wackett
12 Lucock in for Burdon
10 Lozowski for Ford
2 Thompson for Mayhew

Ps

I also considered Damien Tussac at 3, but went with Ben Harris for his ability to score from inside his own half!

Ahh I didn't think of Lucock.
Also remembered Myall and Burrell afterwards

I guess Lee Blackett should come under consideration as well

I like your Tykes team except:

Christophers must feature.
Alfie at 8
Kerr must not feature

Always enjoyed PC going forward but a bit flaky in defence so Belly for me.
Alfie was a terrific 8 but I had to have ryan burrows.
Maybe could have switched buzz to 6.
I always liked Kerr.suppose could have had Rayno Gerber?

I always thought that Kerr's scrummaging was suspect
