    There wasn't any game today.

    (But on most recent form I'd say Thurston, Matt Scott, C Smith, Cronk, Tuivasa-Shek)

    Thurston
    Smith
    Burgess
    Graham
    Parker

    If I was building a team my top 5 would be

    DCE
    Johnson
    Bromwich
    RTS
    Foran

    As a NSW & AUS fan it's not a good looking list.

    Pretty tough ask to pinpoint the 5 best but if you were building a team from scratch, you'd want the best 1,6,7 and 9 you could get. With that in mind,

    1. Thurston....he's the best player in the game. (solves the goal kicker issue too)
    2. Burgess....he's the best forward.
    3. RTS
    4. Smith....don't like him, but it's not a popularity contest.
    5. DCE

    With two more picks, I'd go for grunt in the front row.....Jared Maria and Matt Scott.
