Which player made you stand up in anticipation?

Recommended Posts

A player who, as soon as he got the ball in his hands, made you tense up immediately, knowing what they could do.  A player in space, that made the crowd scream, ‘get hold of him’! or similar (Threepenny stand quotes, censored please).

Modern or latter day.  There’s been a few.

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.

You would not want to hold your breath though.

His nickname should be patchy or inconsistent.

Chicka.  What a player.  

Brett Kenny - interesting that Sterlo put him in at centre, in his all time top 13.

Most of us are thinking fast skillfull players but in hindsight the highlight of a match for me was the first big carry of a match by a forward or when one teams enforcer hit the other teams enforcer - for that Morley, Burgess or Peackock at peak would get me out of my seat.

Ali Lauiititi, amazing offloads, crazy footwork, surprisingly agile. Loved to watch him

Deadly 5-10m away.  Good player overall, but it seemed a try was nailed on from short distance.
