    No Kahn Fotuali'i? REALLY? I'm probably biased but he should at least be mentioned. The guy is carrying the ospreys at the moment.

    Pienaar isn't that good. He is pretty great, but not as vital as he's made out to be (remember Ulster-Castres? Pienaar-free demolition job, and plenty of young guns coming). I'd go Armitage or Fofana
