Re: Team of 20 Years

Second Row is a whole other conversation - there's Hoffman, Kearney, Kidwell, Proctor and Harris to start with and then Manu, Felise Kaufusi, Marquet, Crocker, A.Blair and J.Smith can all be in the mix.

It's hard, whoever you leave out, they're probably a little hard done by.

Re: Team of 20 Years

Lazarus is a tough one - only played 44 games but was a premiership captain, set the club culture up and was one of the great players of his era. I guess the reason he doesn't vet picked by everyone is the short Storm career but certainly has to be in the discussion.

Re: Team of 20 Years

Where do we rate Lima and Norrie? I think Lima needs to be discussed at least, I have him just missing my bench but he should be considered.

Re: Manly the Salary Cap Cheats

Yes, but they'll only get a fine which will be paid by their rich benefactor so they will not really be punished.

Re: Team of 20 Years

And the hooker discussion is probably moot too as it will be one C.Smith.

So on to the props?

Re: Team of 20 Years

I think we'll all agree on Cronk, I guess the question is, do you throw Noddy into the mix for a bench spot?

Re: Team of 20 Years

Just playing devil's advocate here but, Johnson was a major part of the early Bellamy period so arguably he was just as significant...

I can go any of three ways though.

Re: Team of 20 Years

Really hard to argue with any of those three choices.

It really comes down to what type of player you prefer, a defender, an attacker or something in between.
