Shute Shield: Tom Carter picks the best Sydney University 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.
It might not completely fill the rugby sized whole in most of our hearts over summer, but hopefully it'll help kill a little time.

1. Harry Johnson-Holmes
He was a schoolboy prodigy and then pushed through Uni’s colts program. He can play both sides of the scrum, is a great ball carrier and a very dynamic and abrasive forward around the field.
2. Tolu Latu
His performance in the 2013 grand final will be talked about for a very long time. He’s wonderful at set piece, he’s got an incredible physical presence and he’s a dynamic ball carrier.
3. Laurie Weeks
This was a tight one with Dave Fitter also in the mix but I had to go with the people’s champ. He’s a Super Rugby champion, a Wallaby and an incredible bloke. He came through the colts program at Sydney Uni and is one of the all time legends at celebrating a grand final win.
4. Will Caldwell
He was one of the most capped locks for some time. He was incredibly abrasive and physical and one of the best defenders I played with.
