10.BEAUDEN BARRETT – He’s extremely dangerous on attack. He has serious speed, attacks the gainline hard and is tough to defend against off set pieces.
9.CONOR MURRAY – Murray has the ability to control the game and has a well-rounded kicking game. He isn’t afraid to get stuck in physically when needed.
8.KIERAN READ (c) – Read is a great leader. He’s safe under the high ball, makes few mistakes and his decision-making is spot-on.
7. RICHIE McCAW – He was everywhere. His ability to slow the ball down was a dream for any defending team that likes being in the opposition’s faces. A real workhorse.
6. JUAN SMITH – Juan serves as an extra lineout option and brings that intensity to a team. Very physical and a real competitor.
