7. Shaun Johnson.

Are Auckland-born Aussie props like Josh Papali'i, Junior Paulo and the Tongan turncoat Jason Taumalolo available?

I based my team on this website for eligibiity.
I had Jazz in the team but had to remove as he had played for Samoa.

The game would have to be played outside Auckland and the more south the better.

I don't think Aucklanders would get into it. If both the North and South Islands had more of an equal population then that would be our 'Origin'.

But then you also need one side to have a chip in their shoulder and if the South Island wasn't so small, population-wise, then that wouldn't be so.
