The recent spate of announcements of All Blacks going overseas in 2016, now means that there will be an entire team of overseas based All Blacks who could beat most international teams.  Imagine if the New Zealand based All Blacks play against the overseas based All Blacks in a match.  The overseas based All Blacks have the experience, but could lack the young dynamic players.

There are also some players who have been overseas for years that we have forgotten about, while we also haven’t included players likely to retire before 2016 like Richie McCaw, Tony Woodcock and Keven Mealamu.

The All Blacks will probably gel better and despite not being as experienced, they should have more X Factor and speed around the paddock to win.

Which team would win, Overseas based All Blacks or New Zealand based All Blacks? Who would you pick for each team?
