wouldn't get a sniff, and id say that even if he was playing for us now...the fact he was one of our best players in recent years shows just how far we've fallen

I simply don't know how people managed this one to come up with 17, My last count was a top 47 and rising and I think even under Northern Union Rules that would have been a few too many!

Unfortunately for them the Roosters don't have any fans but If they did and one was to put a best Eastern Suburbs team together of players they've stolen from Souths & Wests over the years I'm sure It would be rather impressive.

No subritzky in Carlisle team

Who would you replace? Certainly not Barry Williams, would struggle to put him in ahead of brad hepi, Simon Knox or Stewart Rhodes too. Good player though and further evidence of the strength of our alumni.


Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Would Ellery Hanley be in each top 17 of each club he played for, Bradford, Wigan, Leeds. I think he would. I'd add Yorkshire and gb to that list too.

I think Paul Newlove would make the 17s for Fev, Bradford and St Helens aswell, maybe cas but didn't spend long enough there I think to make there best 17? Would certainly have a look in for Yorkshire and gb 17s too.

Anyone else come to mind that played for 3 or more teams, and are probably rated in their best 17s?

Would Offiah be in Widnes, Wigan and London's (all guises) all time teams?

I think he would for sure, definitely widnes and Wigan and also gb. Can't think of many wingers better than him who played for London, although he wasn't there very long.

I had Offiah and Robinson in my Wigan 17 but admitted that Boston would be in if it was all time bit I hadn't seen him play.

Hell of a choice picking two out of Martin Offiah, Jason Robinson and Billy Boston.

I think Kevin Ward would get in both Cas and Saints all time team. As well as Yorkshire and GB teams. Not sure about Manly's team doubt he spent long enough there.

Suppose it would be tough to slot subritzky in the Carlisle team. They uncovered some gems over the years, especially early on.

Ward was one of the players the Aussies respected. I'd be surprised if he wasn't up there with manlys best ever prop forwards, so certainly a chance of being in their best 17

My Cas team (only including players I have seen live - so post late 80's):

Hardaker

St John Ellis

Richie Blackmore

Michael Shenton

(Dare I say) Denny Solomona

Tony Smith

Luke Gale

Kevin Ward

Paul Mcshane

Lee Crooks

Tawera Nikau

Mike McMeeken

Adrian Vowles

 

Daz Clark

Dean Sampson

Junior Moors

John Joyner

 

Tough call between Graham Steadman and  Hardaker for FB, but think ZH has a more complete all round game.

Could quite easily have paired Gale up with Mike Ford, Danny Orr or Brad Davis in the halves. 

Kevin Beardsmore probably should be in but I only saw the last few years of his career and he doesn't stand out in my memory.

Australian Ronnie Gibbs had a reletively brief spells with us, would probably have been in had he stayed longer.  

 

 

Saw Steadman and Hardaker at Fev and beyond. Steadman was the more complete, exciting and creative player with more raw speed. He was more competitive and had the character necessary to turn a game. Zac was a great youngster with lots of natural ability.

Steadman.
