Which player made you stand up in anticipation?

Recommended Posts

Backs - Jiffy. His brain was 3 moves ahead of everyone elses and he was lightening quick, as we know.

Fwds - Les Boyd. Had to watch him through my fingers in anticipation of what piece of genius or gruesome act was going to transpire........ usually the latter.

Obviously depends what you are looking at,somebody to make you stand up and watch, Jim Mills,you never knew what he was going to do next. Might decide to run might decide to pass, might decide to flatten the nearest opposing player to him,might be one of his own players if he got in his way. A great character and actually a very  nice man,off the field.

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

His finish against saints in the corner was better than anything I've seen from Makinson or Johnstone and Ali weighed about as much as both of them put together.

Steve Norton was a magician with the ball and seemingly jogged through opposition.  I regret I didn’t see more of him but even in his last few years at Hull he was class.

Apologies Doc,

                      I thought you put Richie Myler, now I read your post I realise you put Tony Myler. When I read it first I ignored it as I thought you had been out on the beer all day.

the thing with eddie rombo was the hype that came with him made you expect something spectacular
