You could allow yourself Garry and Gareth, to make the job do-able, I suppose.

Does Pauli Pauli count as one or two players?

As you could have PAULI Pauli by using his first name and then have Pauli PAULI Using his surname.

What about Henry and Robbie Paul?  Do they count?

Never mind it’s my bedtime now ..... time to take my medication.

Biased but Toms (probably reflecting my age too)

1. Tom Trbojevic

2. Tom lineham

3. Gareth Thomas

4. Tom Johnstone ( shoehorned in I know)

6. Tommy Martyn

7. Thomas Leuluai

Bit stumped with the final 3 tbh without going into pre war era players, naturally when searching for Toms or Thomas's you get a lot of Welsh converts too.

Also theres a lot of Wingers and Fullbacks!

Tom Olbison at second row? The Warrington/Leigh/GB second-row forward of the 1970s, Tommy Martyn is probably a bit before your time and would be playing in the same team as his son Tommy at stand-off.

In that case, put Tommy Snr to SO, move Tommy Jnr to loose and push Tommy Smales to SR..........ooo! It's like being a GB manager in the early 90s, playing g people out of position to get them in the team ??

Listening to the Sky pundits, I can't believe there isn't a team of "Matties" out there.  That abbrev. of Matthew does my head in.

OK, I can forgive you for spelling McCorquodale wrongly but his first name was actually Iain ... with two "i"s (maybe that made him see better when kicking !) ?

Although that still wouldn't stop the confusion for the coach when shouting at them.
