    Having (thankfully) never had the task of stopping any of these individuals, I can't comment. But a guy I played lot of Rugby against called Zarin Barber was very hard to tackle.

    I did however, as a 17 year old winger, have the honour of playing against Ron 'Rambo' Gibbs when he had finished his Sydney career and was playing bush footy for Trangie. I took a tap and he absolutely smashed me. Definitely a highlight of an otherwise uneventful career.

    Ken Irvine. First, you had to catch him before tackling him. Secondly not everyone were fast enough to manage this.

    One on one, George Rose. Remember when he first hit the NRL? Players could not get there arms around him.
    It's never too soon to mention Artie ;)
