Lowdesert Posted August 2, 2018 Share Posted August 2, 2018 Seeing that there have just been more ‘immortals’ added to the Aussie list, I compared it with our Hall of Fame. We have 25 awarded versus 106. Shocked we haven’t awarded more. Selfishly, I’m amazed Johnny Whiteley isn’t in our HoF, for his career on the pitch and off it. He has God like status in Hull. Clive Sullivan, although passed away, likewise. I have no doubt, James Roby will get voted in at some point, yet the real forerunner of an attacking hooker was Tommy Harris. Arguably another consideration. Edit: Bevan is in both Hall of Fames! Ours is heavily biased towards backs, only 4 forwards, all loose forwards, not 1 prop or second row. Aus has 47 forwards. John Atkinson, Andy Gregory, Kevin Ward, John Joyner warrant consideration. Sinfield, SB and James Graham in the future. The awards have been hit and miss over the years. I’m unsure of the actual criteria but surely we can consider more than a meagre 25. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
