Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Not all of the past players mentioned were without their critics at the time. Think of George Fairbairn in the late 80s/early 90s team, or Edwards or Greg in the 70s.

Another consideration is that a star can often only really shine with other decent players around him, and a coach who is able to get the best out of him. Watch George Williams' reputation when he settles in at Canberra.

Williams will be back like so many others as a failure.
Just hope it's not to us

I agree. To be fair though there are none in SL.
Coote, Uate, Merrin, Naiqama, Hurrell, Lolohea and Blair were all top class players in the NRL add to that the golden boot winner plays in SL we have erm.....
Would he be the golden boot winner if the corner flags had still been in play, Just looks jazzy with the flying through the corner flag tries
yeah but they arent in play so he is. Most good wingers do this now

Most glory seekers do it now, used to be much more exciting seeing them do it with the flags in play, Now that took real skill

glory seekers? they are beating players, what skill would it take to bundle over with the corner flag in play?

If you touch the flag you’re in touch... therefore it’s harder to score a try.

Current rule is more fun, easy on the eye and leads to more tries. Old rule took a lot more skill.

Correct, If you can fend them on youtube Pat Richards scored a few beauties where he had millimeters to spare, Far more spectacular and exciting than anything Golden Boot comes up with

harder but less skillful as you can only get in with strength if the defender has you, instead of beating a defender with flair.

Wow, Really, So it takes more skill to dive through the corner flag than it does to place the ball down without touching it :shock: , Can I have some of what you have been drinking
