106-Letters All Black XV to play Fiji

106 letters is the absolute minimum letters required to name an All Black XV. There are only 2 players who have played test rugby with 6 letters in their name. The team has a very inexperienced backline, with just 16 caps and 57 Era-Adjusted Caps. But the forward pack boasts 135 caps and 346.31 on an Era-Adjusted basis. And that tight five would provide a pretty good platform for them!

1 Ken Gray (debut 1963, final test 1969, caps 24, Era-Adjusted Caps 70.00)
2 Ron Hemi (1953, 1959, 16, 66.67)
3 Bill Bush (1974, 1979, 12, 30.13)
4 Ron King (1934, 1938, 13, 58.04)
5 Bob Duff (1951, 1956, 11, 48.53)
6 Don Max (1931, 1934, 3, 25.00)
7 Sam Cane (2012, 2017, 53, 35.44)
8 Lew Hook (1929, 1929, 3, 12.50)
9 Danny Lee (2002, 2002, 2, 1.42)
10 Ian Dunn (1983, 1983, 3, 5.36)
11 Jim Watt (1936, 1936, 2, 8.33)
12 Jim Ryan (1910, 1914, 4, 25.00)
13 Ben Atiga (2003, 2003, 1, 0.22)
14 Ray Bell (1951, 1952, 3, 15.00)
15 Rex Orr (1949, 1949, 1, 2.08)

Captain would be Ron King. And, if possible, Bob Duff would also qualify as the coach of the team. And in line with the conservation of the alphabet - they would play a single test match against Fiji, on Sunday, May 1st.

Criteria: All Black Test Players, playing in position, with the least number of letters in their name.
