More-Johns-Than-A-Convention-For-Incontinent-Alcoholics XV

A celebration to the most popular first name in All Black history:

1 John Drake (test debut 1986, final year 1987, caps 8, era-adjusted caps 15.38)

2 John Black (1977-1980, 3, 6.82)

3 John Ashworth (1978-1985, 24, 54.55)

4 John Fleming (1979-1980, 5, 13.89)

8 John Graham (1958-1964, 22, 66.38)

Manager John Sturgeon

Commentator John McBeth

Jon Preston is the outside selection at 9. The alternative could be an uncapped player - Baabaas style - such as John Lecky from 1884!

Of course, there are 10 Johns who miss out: McEldowney, Afoa, Major, Creighton, Schwalger, Irvine, Dougan, Hotop, Collins, Morrissey. 

But these are our preferred Johns, generally based on number of caps.
