Was Livett the big shot GB amateur that just looked lost?
I'm surprised Kyle White is in there as a bottom 3 pick. Surely not in the same league as some of them mentioned!!


Agreed, Kyle White was one of the most destructive forwards I've ever seen

Most exciting to watch for me - Sione, Manihera and Barry Williams marginally more than Jenkins, Lunt, Walsh and Hetherington oh and Savelio was pretty impressive.

Least exciting to watch duffy roden and second rower from whitehaven whose name I can't recall who rejoined a couple of years ago then vanished again who always managed to hit the ground before he was tackled.

When I think of Cocker I think of a game at Keighley in a mud bath when they were the top dogs and we went there and won with him scoring two crackers down the wing . And Hepi had a good barney with someone I can't think off from their pack .

Yes, I put him in my three. He was a winger as I recall, one of Ray Ashton's lesser achievements bringing him to Town. He only played about 4 games.


Virtually everybody from the 91/92 season including Jason Green (another of Ashton's) and Colin Coles. Poor Jonny Lomax must've wondered what he was doing here.

Not sure i should include CC as he wasn't very happy about his treatment by Jam Free !

Dean Burgess??

Anthony Samuel was my hero growing up! Tackling machine.

A forward called Mark Kear now springs to mind as one of the worst.

Honourable mention for Phil Mckenzie for sheer class and impact in a short time . And big mention for Rowland Phillips for sticking with us as things started to turn and carrying us .And I'll go with Tony Smith , Martyn Wood and Mark Lord for huge hype that never materialised to anything.

I started watching town regular around 91, my top 3 are

Jimmy Pickering - enough said already,
Mark mulligan - solid as a rock, scored tries and what a kicking game out of hand.
Jarrad stack - mr consistent, does he do bad games???


Worst 3

Ten minute taani - I thought he was dire
Mark Jackson - no interest in playing for town, and it showed, thought champ 1 would be a breeze and did nowt.
Mark Hobson - awfull

Yep what a rapid demise !

To be fair lavalu was great in his first year in cahoots with the rest of kiwis as was Beattie in his; I remember in his first match against Halifax (friendly) he was superb. I guess after the first year sides have got you worked out more ?

Haven't named anyone from present squad as of course they are all brilliant ! ;)

Talking of Keighley , the home game at the end of the season was awesome . We ripped them up for 50 with great rugby and Jimmy battered Andy Eyres and was pointing at the scoreboard as they were being sent off !!

Jacko had a great career but was spent when he arrived. If anything the guy was the best hooker the counties produced in years he had it all, passing game, aggressive defence and his kicking game was something nobody in the pro game ever seen and someone decided to turn him into a prop forward!
Forget Chuck and Chad I am the real legend killer

haha cc, he'll come and find you

This is ever so hard to pick top 3 and bottom 3.

Top 3 - Jimmy P, Shane Varley, Kenny Kerr - Easily chuck another 20 or so top contenders for second and third spots - The only one that could never be in doubt is Jimmy P - what a player.

Bottom 3 - Yeah if going off hype and then who were rubbish - Lordy (can't have done much of a medical injured when he came), Wood & livett.
