Caleb Clarke is a pretty early call for 5 games...

Bernard La Roux's the one I'd have most issues with. He's big and serves a function but surely there are better locks our there.

Radradra at 12's an interesting call, considering he's never played there to my knowledge, but it's not as though there are plentiful high-quality international 12s out there right now.

Understandable French bias to the results. You'd say Ryan over Le Roux, probably MakoV over Baille, and Radradra over Vakatawa if they're both competing for 13. I'm also not sure Ntamack is really the best 10 in the world, although I'm not sure who I'd have to replace him right now.

James Ryan, for example? (as Puja suggested!)
