    In touches per try assist, Brett Stewart is rated number one in the NRL. He averages a try assist every 29 touches of the football which is the best strike rate of any player in the NRL.


    Top 5
    1 Brett Stewart 29

    2 James Maloney 47.2

    3 Adam Reynolds 48

    4 Greg Inglis. 48.8

    5 Mitchell Pearce. 52.6

    What makes Snakes strike rate even more impressive is that he doesn't get any try assists from bombs like Maloney, Reynolds and Pearce would.
    Combine this great stat with his try scoring strike rate and it proves he is our most valuable player by a long way. When fit, he is the best in the NRL IMO.

    His stats would be even better, but a in fair proportion of the other 28 touches he is actually scoring tries...

    We all know how great Brett is, shame he won't be winning any prizes however. All prizes have already been allocated to souffs players

    Absolute class!

    I heard Bowen or someone like that talking about the great no.1s, and it was Inglis, Slater, Patten (???WTF??) etc etc. I almost smashed the tv set when Snakes name wasn't mentioned. It's a pity he doesn't get the plaudits some of the other 1s get (although I'd imagine he wouldn't give a flying...)

    I've said this before but Snakes class gets missed by most because:

    He makes the spectacular look simple.

    Whereas Silly Billy just makes the simple look specatular.

    Stewart excelled at origin in the NSW team. Manly does not win if he does not play. Won 2 premierships. Best offensive/defensive fullback in the modern era.

    Saw that too. It was Steve Turner talking. Explains the reference to Patten.

    It was Slater. Slater knows Snake is better, hence the blatant omission.
    [hr]
    Geez, maybe all three said it. Turner, Bowen & Slater. Too many head knocks.

    And some experts claim he doesn't have a passing game.

    I assume his strike rate is so high because he doesn't get many touches (compared to the halves anyway) and a lot of those touches would be in attacking positions. That's not to diminish his efforts, it's a testament to his ability that he can capitalise on those opportunities. I'd love to know what Slater's strike rate is.

    I heard Slater talking in an interview, all about his love of horses, and he gave a longish list of the great fullbacks he's been playing against, AND HE DID EXACTLY THE SAME THING

    iTS DELIBERATE. if you don't mention him - he doesnt' exist.:mad:

    Does Snake have a sponsor now ? for his boots or whatever. Praps It could say, Brett Stewart, proudly sponsored by Hugh Jackman. ?

    Those soft hands just pass the ball effortlessly to the lucky Try scorer :)

    I have so many happy memories of our effortless Deity :angel:

    Cliffy conserved his energies to beat the Fans to the pokies after the game and let those magic passes do the hard yards :p

    Don't care that others in the NRL community drool over the likes of Inglis, Slater, Bowen. Bunnies, storm and cows are welcome to their fullbacks.
    Snake is magic and he's ours.
