Shute Shield: Morgan Turinui picks the best Randwick team of his time

It's an argument heard regularly at rugby clubs right around Australia and typically one that can never be resolved.

Which players would get a start in the best XV of all time at their respective clubs?

To add fuel to the fire, Rugby News has asked a series of past players to select their best club side from their playing days.

To clarify, this team is from the perspective of the author and will largely feature individuals from that player's era.

1. Fosi Pala’amo

Fosi played Aussie 21s, then went on to play for Western Samoa and eventually for Leinster during Michael Cheika’s successful time over there.

He’s honestly one of the best players I ever played with and if it wasn’t for injuries, I think he would have played a lot higher. He was good at set piece, skilful, had a great catch pass and could put you through a hole.

When we won the comp 2004, he was consistently one of our best.

2. Adam Freier

This was actually tougher than it might seem because we also had a guy named Nio Halangahu, Daniel Halangahu’s brother. He was a hooker that kicked goals and scored tries, he could do it all.
