200 Gondor Fountain Guards vs. 200 Roman Legionaires Can't Post

So, I'm thinking that the Fountain Guards have their huge spears and shields, and the Legionaires have their huge shields and spears.

That being said:

100 Fountain Guards lock shields and stick spears straight out. The other 100 draw swords and hold shields in forward position.

100 Romans lock shields and spears, and then the other 100 holds spears in throwing position, since their spears aren't too long to throw, like the fountain guards are.

Both sides charge in ordered formation. Who wins?

I'd go with the Fountain Guards, because of their better armor, but I think Padster would disagree. I think he'd say that the Romans are better trained, better in one-on-one combat, and because the Fountain Guards are mainly for decoration and tradition, the Romans would win even with less armor.
