I've always maintained that Hanley was the best player I've ever seen, but I think that's now no longer the case. Some players come along once or twice in a lifetime that seem to transcend the game and players around them, just like Hanley. But for me I think that Hanley has been surpassed.
I reckon Greg Inglis is the best player I've ever seen.
I know what your saying and I wouldn't be surprised if Inglis does surpass him. For me though as it stands I still think Hanley shades it as the best I've seen. Mainly down to the way he went from a great athlete without much game sense playing wing/centre to a stand off and eventually onto a loose forward with all the craft and knowledge of someone who'd been playing it from a young age.
