Adam Doyle (one of many Warrington's late-90s one season wonders) at stand-off.

Doyle doesn't even qualify as a one-half wonder, never mind one season.

But on a related note, Graham Appo might work as a pint-sized porker across the backline.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Feka, Rose and Solomona would definitely be the Modern Day Props.

Being an amateur 15st Second Row I must admit running into 20st+ Props isn't the most enjoyable experience. I'm sure Portsmouth (or maybe Southampton?) have a 22st Prop. Dude is freaking huge! There's footage of me online running into the guy and bouncing backwards off him. :lol:

Bit short on threequarters and Loose Forwards, oh and hookers too. What about Nicky Kiss?

Terry Day - Warrington/Hull wasn't the trimmest loose forward

I once played against Ian van Bellen at amateur RU. He'd lost a lot of weight by then but was still strong as an ox in the front row.

Reet got a side together with Andy Gregory (how could we forget) a new entry at Scrum Half. Final wing spot between Gerald Cordle and Billy Boston.
