So we're thinking, now that we have so many kiwi Pros such as Joe Ulberg, Darryn Onekawa, Mike Kingsnorth and Salah Ibrahim, wouldn't it be great to see them line up to see who's the best of them all. Here's a glimpse of who may line up. There's also Mike Debenham who has just had his Pro card reinstated, so he could be on there too! Sorry if we've missed out any others. Start training hard guys!!
