Following the announcement of squads for New Zealand’s North vs South match, we remind you of the hypothetical selections we made for a South African state-of-origin series.
In this selection series at SARugbymag.co.za, we opted for a couple of key criteria. Players were picked on where they were born, while overseas-based players were also considered for selection.
For one combined team, we looked at players born in the Western Cape, a hotbed of rugby talent, while also including those who were born in the Northern Cape.
This followed on from the selection of an Inland XV, and a combined Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal XV team.
