Gareth Thomas on RL; "in union there is a lot of kicking and set plays going on which seem to take ages to play. Whereas in league if you shut down for a few seconds the players are so talented in recognising you are up or out of the line they put the ball up into the air, into a gap and score. It's 80 minutes of working whereas in Union you can rest and have a look into the crowd a lot of the time".
I remember Scott Gibbs and Inga Tuigamala making similar comments shortly after they crossed to the handling code as well.
If Koukash is doing one thing right it is getting under the skin of Unionites.
This is the age old debate about how you consider a player to be the best in the world. Do you look for individual brilliance or someone whose play is essential to a team performing to its full ability?
Personally I think a mixture of the two is what should be looked for. I'd go for Cooper Cronk (can't belive he didn't get a single vote!) followed closely by Kieran Foran.
