Readers: Your selections

The readers have spoken and we have collated the form players in each position in the different conferences, with a few surprise packages thrown up in each of the teams.

Some of you were quite daring in your selections, and that creative ‘flair’ has resulted in a few players being nominated in positions they have not played in all season.

Examples such as Bulls loosehead Dean Greyling getting as many votes as his teammate Werner Kruger at tighthead prop, Cheetahs left wing Willie le Roux getting selected in the No.14 jersey and Australian wings Lachlan Mitchell and Pat McCabe fighting it out for the outside centre berth are just some examples of the left-field views of our readers.

So here are the selections of the form players in each conference, as voted for by you – our wise readers – let us know what you think of the ‘form XVs’ from each conference.
