Good feature on the Footy Show tonight was the mention of the Top 5 Toughest players in League.

Some great names mentioned:

Terry Randall, Mal Reilly, Cement Gillespie, Geoff Toovey, John O'Neill.

Anyone got any picks in their top 5?

I can't name a top 5. But if I could, Toovey would obviously be the first pick. Nik Kosef is another who springs to mind. Anyone who can come back as many times as he did after such serious injuries has got to be extremely tough, both physically and mentally. There are other obviously tough bastards like Webcke and Kennedy, but one act that stands out for me is Paul Bowman in that Origin game a year or two ago. For that he can round out my top 3.

Gavin Miller, Webcke, Kevin Ward, Tommy Bishop, and Tooves. But my list would probably stretch to 20 easily.
