@58I wouldn't take anything Harris says as serious, simply because he's talking out of the back of his head. Tomkins could not hold a candle to Ellery Hanley in his pomp. Harris will have seen Hanley when at Wigan or he started watching RL late on in which case he should think more before speaking.
sam is a fantastic rugby league player the game suits him down to the ground but rugby union? dont think so he,d never see the ball, the one and only reason he would switch is money simple as. then come and play for the leicester tigers sam.
Yes Sam is the best all round british at moment but he needs to lose the whinging attitude as it winds him up and he becomes in effective..observe Billy Slater.All time greatsWally Lewis; "The King"Brett KennyElleray HanleyBrad FittlerShaun EdwardsMal MeningaPeter SterlingDarren LockyearAlfie LangerBilly BostonFuture greats Cameron smith Billy Slater Jon Thurston
I am sure Harris' comments have been taken out of context and if you were to pin him down he could come up with a few different names. Tomkins is the best player in England at the moment, but there are 4 better FB's currently playing in the NRL (Slater, Barba, Inglis, Stewart).And finally to Moley, your comments on Sinfield are so wide of the mark its embarrassing!
Thurston has more skill and ability, Lockyear had consistency and brain, which is a skill in itself. Two very different players if you analyse them The greatest doesn't always mean the best.1. Andrew Johns2. Wally Lewis3. Darren LockyearAs for awards, they don't mean anything. Todd Carney got a Daily M so does that mean he is better than lockyear? HA!
I agree with the Kris Radlinski comment, but not even a mention of Jason Robinson? Cross code and multi positions. A phenomenal player. Admittedly he developed parts of his game (catching the high ball and kicking) after going to Union, but watching him at Wigan was a pleasure. Wonder if Elleray Handley was playing now with the Sky coverage how much the media would elevate him to public's notice?
He'll be even better when he learns to catch...
COYS82 , lockyer - clive churchill medal 2000, dally m five eighth of year 2006,2007 dally M rep player of year 2006 ???
coys82 its just a good job most people dont share your opinion. the players you name are all greats anyway so how does that mean lockyer was overrated. i myself also watched the NRL, and lockyer is more important than thurston.
@51If you will permit me, perhaps I could correct one part of your post; I think the correct spelling is daan saaf if you are aiming at common southerners and dane sathe for the folk wot are posher like. No wot i mean.Can't stop to chat I'm off to a right old cockney kneeze up tonight and I have a few pearly buttons to sew back on to my outfit.
The best player I ever saw was Brendan Hill, front row for the Mighty Fax. Now there was a real athlete. PS to all you rugger union toffs. Please stop thinking that you are superior, just because you are from darrn sarth. Some Northerners can spell. It's the whole country that seems to be poorly educated these days, not just the north.
