Could this be the theoretical Toulon XV to beat the All Blacks?


What do Matt Gitteau, James O'Connor, Delon Armitage, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe, Maxime Mermoz, Charles Ollivon, Gerard Vosloo, Lachie Turner and Romain Taofifenua have in common?

None of them made this XV. 

If you allow for Paul O'Connell to return from injury before the end of the season and to play Freddy Michalak play at scrumhalf where he has previously started for France, then this team might just be the team that could give the All Blacks a run for their money. It's just plain tasteless.
