    HM Berrick Barnes, king of the f***ing midfield up-and-under. It's no accident Qld won the comp after he went from Eagle Farm to Mascot.

    Oh, and just another bump for #WillSkelton. That's how the internet works, isn't it?

    Not sure about Barnes. He seemed very well performed to me. Do we have a voucher?
    I dunno about Wendy. He seemed fairly terrifyingly impressive at times to me.

    Was Henjak ever really touted as the next big thing? The naughties did produce a shit load of overhyped talent. Anyway, on the topic of naughty, he's forever immortalised in DP's crim XV/90s Brisbane private school thread.

    He did have an outstanding game against Wales. In a meaningless 3rd v 4th playoff at the 2011 RWC.

    The Big Dell case is made on a comparison of the utter cock strutting alpha dominance of his NRL years:
    Broncos, 196 games, 122 tries
    Maroons, 14 games, 1 try
    Kangaroos, 16 games, 17 tries
    St George, 33 games 17 tries.

    To the relative desert of his time in Australian union:
    Reds, 47 games, 12 tries
    Tahs, 8 games 4 tries
    Wallabies, 37 games, 13 tries.

    Looked great in a tight t-shirt tho.

    Hell yes. Chizzz looked like an absolute wrecking ball of muscled glory, but played well below his weight for mine. Just like Sitaleki Timani.

    I'd suggest Luke Burgess for 9. Big bloke for a scrum half, well-proportioned, more a "half-forward" than a half-back. Unfortunately, passing skills often more like a front-row forward too.

    I hear ya Tex but me not knowing anything about that idiotic paint-by-numbers tonka toy of a sport dont help. They could be giving away tries like Cyclo gives away boiled sweeties to the sprogs at the bus stop for all I know.
    This is a pretty good return chief

    No idea here. What was his expectation/crap ratio?

    In my opinion Luke Burgess always had that bit of leeway in his game considering he was in the Fifths at Joeys and was kind of goofy in a “I’m stoked to be here” Sort of way. Whereas Henjak had the look at me haircut and the pedigree of his uncle winning the commonwealth bank cup (league schoolboy knockout). Also brought the whole leaguie fight your teammates on the turps thing to the table.
    Looking at five eighths? Sam Norton Knight?

    Caderyn Neville picked sole for the fact he was 202 cms and 130 kgs of looks.

    Begs the question; where does Al Baxter figure in all of this?

    he correctly predicted(for him) on that tour there would be more scoring off the paddock,than on it

    Baxter he’d have killer calves considering he spent a career on rollerskates.

    Butch James at 10?

    Alex Cuthbert on the wing?

    Controversial but I have always thought Etzebeth gets more praise than his actually game quality. Mostert, Snyman, De Jagr all better players in my book yet constantly play second fiddle.

    Ryan mcGoldrick our wide somewhere. Crossed over from league with a bit of fanfare, didn’t achieve much. Went back to league, ended up in the UK, collecting tats and apparently using the spare room as a strip club. Always liked yannie debeers from the springboks, wasn’t too athletic, but kicked 7(?) field goals to knock England out of a World Cup. But that probably goes against the concept of looks like they will be impressive but aren’t.

    Was going to mention Fawcett too brokendown, but thought he was too far back, same as Farrell at 15, though to be fair Farrell didn't look a great player in the flesh anyway!

    Probably to be fair like farrell there wasn't a lot of expectation from Fawcett, so perhaps he shouldn't make the team.
