    He deserves them all. One of the greatest match winners I have ever seen. He has only a few blemishes like telling St Choke they 'can't play' and I don't have a problem with that :)

    Alfie was the one who came up with the 'Saints Can't Play'.

    Lockyer had the perfect final game last week and deserves all the accolades that will continue to flow his way.

    Glad he didn't do a Changa at the SFS this Friday. His young family deserves to have him back intact.

    He's been a great player and he does deserve the accolades.

    He has been a great player but so is Beaver and he hasn't/didn't get the same publicity as Locky.

    If he'd have played at any other club (except the cap cheating scum) he'd have been moved on or retired a couple of years ago.....imo

    Gotta give credit where credit's due. I think the match winning field goal to down the Dragons just summed up the talent.

    Mullen, you idiot.

    Why not throw David Hussey in there while you are at it Neville.

    Hmm where to start

    Cliffy - i love him almost as much as i can love another man. You would struggle to say he had the consistent impact locky has had on representative football
    Foran - granted he has the potential however how many times has he won a test match for nz? You could argue his form has tailed away toward the end of the year
    Benji - I thought you were bagging him before (do not quot me on this) yes a great player however look at the durability of locky
    Lyon - You can think he has a greater influence over matches
    Mullen - now you are just trolling

    The only possible negative I could find of the man was his signing with Super League.

    But then, in his book, he apparently recognises and regrets the damage the defections caused the game.

    Class act. On field and off.

    Its ok for people to insult me but I can't give it back lol,i just think one player has a fair few betters, if Benny didn't coach brisbane locky wouldn't have played a game for qld, he was a fullback in a bad time for that position

    Yeh, sorry about the Alf mistake. Then the only blemish I can think of that hit the mainstram press is his tackling of a bottle shop employee. But in a long career and knowing footie players he has been one of the better behaved players. On-field he is a definite champ. Like Sterling and some of the real greats the number of times he has dragged his team to victory almost single-handedly is amazing. Hated that he broke Beaver's and Lamb's record but that says it all in just how huge his impact has been. Loved him in the green and gold. This week could be a sad end but who knows what history has to offer him but it doesn't matter really, he has had just the greatest run and deservedly so.
