    Apologies in advance. I know this has been done, but after the defections I'm sure my team has now changed. I tried to do a search but couldn't find the original thread. So, as I said, after adjusting for the defectors:
    1. Eadie
    2. Boustead
    3. Lyon
    4. Innes
    5. Robertson
    6. Lyons
    7. Toovey
    13. Vautin
    12. Gibbs
    11. Menzies
    10. Ward
    9. Krilich
    8. Randall

    I had to push Randall up to the front row to accomodate Rambo.
    I was surprised at how few current players I had. In another 5 years I reckon a few more of the current players will be in there. ie: Stewarts, Choc and Matai

    Not bad side but i reckon Roberts should be there in place of Ward & maybe Kosef /Stewart in for Vautin[hr]
    would also have Micheal O`Connor there somewhere...

    My only drama no room for Kosef, stewie (g), Boyd, Cement or SPud.
    But if there was a bench - there they are.

    Eadie is the best fullback that will EVER play for this club-Brett can be ballboy, and have a run when the great wombat pulls a hamstring.

    That team would take beating all over the park>Speed, Power, Skill

    Big call on wombat over Brett. I only saw wombat in 81-83.

    We have been lucky with 3 amazing fullbacks over the last 25-30 years in eadie, ridge and Brett.

    It isn't about who is the best anyway, it is the posters favourites

    Comparing them is really pointless anyway, the role of the modern day fullback is so much different now to what it was back then

    Brett IS amazing mate. He does have all the benefits of modern training methods etc etc. Brett is an athlete.
    The wombat was a footballer-ask some of the old boys who support the club-No one will come close the the Great Man.
    BTW-Eadie was at his best 71-80. 4 GF wins and 6 GF appearances...Not too $#^@ing bad Cam.
    Oh, plus he was my HERO!!!! :)

    Another game of his to watch is Halifax in the 87 challenge cup final

    Special mentions to Ballin,Robbo and I'm sure T Williams will take his place one day, as will Lussick

    Please note this team is from my eras (1990 as my memory of earlier is fuzzy to 1999 and skipping forward to 04,i gave that little a **** about the northern eagles I didn't even know they had died to bring us back,i refound us by channelsurfing followed by an internet search to confirm it wasnt a replay of earlier times or charity match)
