Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Reason enough, in that one post, why a time machine absolutely must be invented. That'd be one hell of a team to watch if you assembled them in their prime. cool.gif

Interesting that none of the Wigan selections so far have included Brett Kenny.

I remember 2GB had a phone-in on all-time best selections. One guy rang in with his selection for the Hunter Mariners. laugh.gif

Would have loved to have seen Paul Harkin's kicking game with the 40-20 rule. Think we would have spent a hell of a lot of time in the oppositions 20 to say the least!

The only problem I had was trying to find someone with a name begining with G to play 3 then we would really have been in business.

It is interesting that most people have not selected current players in their teams. Is the reason simply that we haven't seen their full career pan out yet, or that players used to be better, or is it though nostalgic glasses where everything seemed better?

Personally speaking I am very much guilty of the nostalgic rose tinted's being worn!

Why reluctantly with Monas sam?

I ask, because I think I feel exactly the same! The bloke has been dire at times for us, really one of the worst players I have seen, and his surly manner hardly won me over. Even when King was ###### you could see that he was an honest bloke, trying his heart out, and it just wasn't working for him. With Monas, I didn't get that feeling. He is now one of the best 9's running round in the comp and has signed a new contract and seems a new person. He will undoubtedly go down as a great signing for us, but I can't help but have that little bit of resentment towards him. Probably unfairly, but that's tough as it's how I feel.

it's to do with the lack of quality we've had in that position over the years.

i've been watching warrington since the mid 90's and in that time we've never had an above average hooker, clarke is a good, honest pro but just lacks that certain something to take him to the next level, i'm pleased he's moved more into the pack as i think he's more suited there. before him, i can't remember who played there with any distinction.

monaghan, is clearly a cut above most hookers in sl, he knows when to pass and when to run and the fact he does both well confuses defences. plus he kicks intelligently. it's galling that for the first part of his career he looked like he really didn't give a toss when he's clearly talented. hopefully he'll give us a few decent seasons so i can remove the reluctantly!

I liked Duane Mann, who played for us in the early 90's IIRC. Not the fastest, but had a hell of a lot of skill (a little like Kelly Shelford)
