With the excitement of the Nines starting to creep in, it's time to start thinking about the pack that will be running around at Eden Park.

There is only one player unavailable for selection due to injury, so the opportunities are far and wide. 

It's time to choose Roosters fans, what is your ideal starting Nines side? 

Would you go small and mobile, or big and strong?

Vote below and we will post the most popular side at the week's end. 

HOW TO PICK YOUR SQUAD: 

Five backs (fullback,wing,centre,halves) and four forwards (hooker,prop,backrow). 

There are no wrong or right answers to how you go about the selection, whether you use one half, two wingers and two centres is totally up to you! Put yourself in the Coach's shoes and have fun with it!
