it must be an honor to be some of the player who are still running around on the field today to benamed there.

Did Cliffy not get a mention


UFO Hunter
Nope. That all of them. No Beaver either. Mark Carrol should have got a mention but neither did Terry hill.

something wrong there. i wonder what the basis was for picking them or whether the old name out of a hat method was employed

Sadly enough Cliffy was generally a failure in the SOO series he played. But a fantastic club player.


Winging it
It is hard to argue with the selections. Each name brings back memories of titanic struggles. Gary Jack is possibly the only one who doesn't stand out, but a great selection all the same.

Brett Kenny and Terry Lamb were the two 5/8s that got the mention in the Cliffy era. Cliffy never cemented a spot though got his run and was never outstanding. His style of play didn't suit the players around him though his heroics in winning an Ashes series underlined his brilliance!
