    02. Ken Irvine
    03. Bob Fulton
    04. Reg Gasnier

    Honourable Mentions to: Ken Thornett, John Greaves, Ron Lynch, Ian Walsh, John O'neill and Barry Muir

    Although i'm only 21, i have had the privledge of seeing all these great men play the game.... my grandad has many tapes and i am a sucker for league and it's history and because of that i have seen quite a few video's from him.

    Wouldn't we all love to have a run like the saints did throughout this decade, lead my the one and only johnny raper!

    They will probably go for a hooker that played regular rep footy over Fred Jones, but that's a good looking team Nutz.

    I think so too.. but if i was to pick it that's how i'd pick it

    How good are those players though.. seriously, i wouldn't mind betting that all full decade teams in their prime that the 60's team would beat them all!

    I reckon the 80's and 90's teams would be good.. but these guys from the 60's are something else
