Steve ella was a better stand off for wigan( which is no disrespect to kenny)
no way, look at the parra legends team, Kenny was far better than Lewis also
I never said ella was a better stand off....... i said he was a better stand off for wigan...... I watched more or less all there games for wigan...... ella was way more consistent...... both were class though pal

The thing with kenny was he was a moody player....... if he was in the mood he was the best...... say no more

OVerhyped, didn't even come for a full season, just putting himself in the shop window, wanted to go straight back to Aus, didn't really love wigan, cared more about his other clubs, only wanted to win things for this own profile...
.
He didn’t come for a full season because it had to fit in with his Parramatta off season as usually happened then with our players going the other way.Why would he need to put himself in the shop window when he was already an international and Origin player with two Grand Final MOTM awards in 1982 and ‘83 plus a GoldenBoot winner in 1985.Parramatta was his only club(besides Wigan)and he played his full career there. As for being “lazy” I remember how when we were getting nowhere he would stand back and take a good look around and then usually do something special.I remember David Stephenson saying he would take a tackle himself before he would let someone else get buried. Pure class.
im guessing Mikes post was a tongue in cheek reply due to the current Jackson Hastings comments
.
Maybe,but there a lot of posters on here that weren’t watching 35 yrs ago.
Ella was great player., Lewis was incredible.. They have had some great players since then,but that was a golden era in every position,Meninga Pearce Miles Grothe Dowling Roache and many more.

Imo, our best overseas player ever( in my era) was dean bell...... what a player, what a leader......... very rarely had a bad game and was always willing to put his body on the line....... not many players had it all, but he did......... pace, aggression, reading of a game,demon side step and swerve, awsome tackler, his passing/timing was as good as any centre ive seen........ you never saw much of big mal meninga when deano was his opposite in the NZ colours

I agree. Only seen hi flettened once. Jarred McCracken when guesting for Saint. The kiwi was spotting Dean. Deam was a real Warrior and wrote a book "Ultimate Warrior " which personified him although wasn't meant to. Great Captain. !
