Tony Myler - The original Nigel Wright, he had everything:
Big defence, athleticism, decent speed, physicality, a step and superb hands.
Despite a superb career and some topperformances for GB his career was interupted and eventually cut short by injuries and he never reached his full potential
Tony Myler was
great. To even talk about Nigel Wright in the same breath is crazy.
Tony Myler had the best hands you could ever wish to see and, if it wasn't for his unluckiness with injuries he would have been an all time great.
His one spell in Australia with Balmain had the Aussies drooling and, if he'd been able to play more games, they would have been asking Wally who? when talking about great stand-offs.
Tony Myler is the God of stand-offs - and please don't anyone talk about Shaun Edwards or Garry Schofield as being fit to lace his boots.
