Andrew Johns when he's fit. The way he demolished QLD last year in the 2nd game was unbelievable.

I hear Bobby Fulton was awesome!

But I cant remember him Play.

from my memory Ricky Stewart was the best for longevity.

yeah true mate i have alot of respect for how ricky stuart played!!

He was bloody good, yeah i wasn't around for bobby fulton either or langlands as i said before but i have seen numerous games before cuz i really like digging up old school games and watching and they were both exceptional


Game 2 was the best game i have seen any player play before i was absolutely astounded at his efforts, he really is a freak and i'm grateful to be alive to see the bloke play!!

You live too close to queensland U.P!
I used to live in Qld during the early 80's to mid 90's (when Qld used to woop us) and really disliked Wally so it takes a lot to admit what a great player he was

At least when i went for the bears i got to keep watching past the last round of the comp!!

In saying that though i couldn't go for them if they came back in, love the eagles too much now

But hey had to stick up for em!

All power to you champ. In the last 8 years of the comp, Manly have made it into the finals once. Here's some questions for everyone...How many times in the last 8 years of the Bears existence did THEY make it into the finals?

I would say every damn year. But no GF victories and no GF appearances.

If they had some how survived how many finals apprerances would have they made since 99? I would say maybe 1, and thats being generous.

Anyway they are dead so it means nothing.

Yes, I was also a bears supporter. Dad bought me my first beer in North Sydney Leagues Club at age 9. Almost got me laid there too (some years later). Thanks Dad.

Florimo was best for the Bears. Met him and Larson, Farliegh etc, Great guys.

But to the question at hand. Its impossible to compare olden day to present day, but I saw Langlands & Fulton play,,,,,but I still am astounded at Andrew Johns. He gets my vote because he has been able to inovate in this game while the game has moved faster than at other times in previous eras. A brilliant player that i think should be an immortal one day.

He also surfs and in the place i live thats pretty important.
