Best Exiles Team That Never Was

20 posts in this topic

Seen a few posters saying that the Exiles concept would have been better had it come along earlier when the overseas talent were of better quality.

So, out of interest, what year do people think would have had the best Exiles team if there was one?

Just a stab, I'm going to say 2005 (because thats when Hull had their best overseas players!) but I'm sure someone will post a better one once I've thought about it!

1. Michael Withers

2. Darren Albert

3. Michael De Vere

4. Jamie Lyon

5. Lesley Vainikolo

6. Robbie Paul

7. Tommy Leuluai

8. Joe Vagana

9. Richard Swain

10. Jerry Seu Seu

11. Ali Lauitiiti

12. Stephen Kearney

13. David Solomona

14. Motu Tony

15. Jim Gannon

16. Solomon Haumono

doesn't matter- you cant just put a bunch of talented players together, coach them for a week then expect quality rl-it doesn't work like that

The exiles side is too old and always will because of the fact they only come over when they are mostly at back end of career there was about 8 over 30+ last night old farts

I disagree and think you're wrong.

Thank you for being the only person to actually talk about what the thread was about!

Can those that want to have a b*tch and moan about the Exiles concept do it on one if the many other threads!

Was that Michael Smith at Christmas or mid-season? :tongue:  And to think in 2001, we played Paul Wellens at centre, Mike Forshaw at hooker, Paul Johnson in the centres, Richard Horne on the wing and Kevin Sinfield at scrum half against the Aussies :ph34r:.

I couldn't find another prop!

Also, Horne was in the bench for GB in 2001. It was 2003 Waite put him on the wing. He was meant to start at 7 one game but Waite decided he didn't have enough loose forwards in the starting line up so put Foreshaw in at 7 alongside Paul Sculthorpe at 6, Kevin Sinfield at 9 and Farrell at Loose.

(I'm convinced if Waite tried hard enough, he could have had the 6-13 positions all as loose forwards!)

A couple of players out of position and a bit light weight off the bench but that team would take some beating.
