If you had to select someone to be added to the Hall of Fame since we moved to the South Leeds Stadium in 1995 who would it be?

No mate, Would you have him out of all the players who have played in that period? I can think of a few more id have in front of him

There's only one for me and that's Richard Baker

Nicky Dobson...joke!

I would say Chris Ross would be in with a shout. Probably our top points scorer since 1995, and was with the club for most of his career after coming through from the academy. He was one of the most versatile players the club has had, being able to cover all the back positions plus hooker and loose (and he was excellent in a lot of those positions). The latter stages of his career with the club weren't the best (I seem to recall he left and came back a couple of times but could be wrong) but that shouldn't go against him as he was a terrific player during the a very successful period for the club.

Baker is a good shout too. When he tackled a player they knew they'd been hit, even if they were twice his size!

Two candidates Chris Ross and Lee Hanlon. Think that Lee may just edge it.

There on the wall in the Phoenix, dont know them all off the top of my head, but it think there's only Jimmy Lowes and Grahame King post the 80's so weed some more players from the 90's and 2000's

David Plange has to be in with a shout, superb player and one of our most successful coaches?
David Brook has to have a great chance also?

All these 3 should be in,it'll be a long time before you get players like these again........players don't stay at clubs as much as what they used to........it would be nice to see a picture of Graham and Sean on the wall in the Phoenix bar even if they can't make the Hall of Fame..........
