not much in it. Orford probably just better in attack and Monas is defence.

Monas seems to work harder in games as well. But what these stats do tell is that Orford is not worth 200k extra. That is certain. He hasnt even played Origin or Test footy.

Monas is also younger than Orford and has time to be better than Orford is.

Half backs are in the side for their attack, not their defence.

I see you're back Flip?

Then the Broncos should drop Lockyer and the Bulldogs Sherwin, seeing as they miss so many tackles.

I never said they should be dropped.

Best halfback in the world is Andrew Johns and he has both good attack and defence. Geoff Toovey is another great example.

go watch NFL if you want that 2 seperate teams stuff.

all 17 players are in the side for attack AND defence.

Thats why we are where we are.

With the greatest respect to the great man, Tooves was never a great attacking half back, individually brilliant, ie running at the line/gaps etc but setting up plays wasnt his strength, BUT he complimented a bloke called Cliffy Lyons who was the best ball playing 5/8 this club has had since Bozo.

When Tooves lost Cliffy, how long was it till he was moved to Hooker ? I wont place monaghs in the toovey class, however there games are quite simlilar except Tooves was yards quicker of the mark.
