    It is not such a big issue in League. The scrums are not really contested and apart from this what is the issue?

    We could put Mark Tookey and Grant Woden in the Manly pack and we would be up near the top - but would our pack be better.

    I know that Harry Bath always said 'A good big pack will always beat a good little pack' but I am not sure that this is relevant in todays game as much - with interchange and a more mobile style of forward.

    Spot on CW. That still didn't stop Roy Masters gushing on a heap of crap on this subject a week ago.

    If Manly has a hooker like Dunley and Parra have a hooker like Riddell that makes up the difference between us and them. Most packs need a contrast between the mobile and light on their feet, nippy player and the big power forward and the rangy and fast wider runner. As long as the pack complements each other, defends well together and can still make it out of their own territory there is no reall issue.

    Dogs are third lightest yet they were making 70-80 metres a set in contrast to the bigger St G pack that was making about 30 m a set for most of the first half!!!

    O'Meley is a good example of skill over size - he would be close to being the smallest prop going around but close to being the best going around.
