    there got a list of there so called top players for positions and over all rankings.

    1: Danny Buderus
    2: Andrew Johns
    3: Benji Mashell
    4: Mark Gasnier
    5: Ben Kennedy
    6: Anthony Minichello
    7: Tim Smith
    8: Matt Sing
    9: Ashley Harrison
    10: Dean Young

    80: Darren Lockyer



    I cant agree with a lot of these, but then again im no expert that sits behind a reporters desk., they say they where ranked in 5 different categories to get the final results.

    Matty Sing got dropped by the Maroons. Great player but not in the top 10 these days.

    Well you said it's rated in the position they play.. so in that case i would agree with most except Tim Smith, Dean Young and Matt Sing..

    Darren Lockyer is about right for the position he "plays" ..

    I think Minichiello should be higher though, i put him behind bedsy and johns as top 3 players in the game!

    Okay - I apogise here, but that list is ridiculous. Are these players that are currently in the NRL?

    What about Nathan Hindmarsh. He in my opinion is one of the best second rowers to ever play the game. He's inspirational.

    Then add Jamie Lyon. I would argue that he is the best centre in the world.

    Stuart Fielden would have to rate a mention.

    I have not seen the list Ryan but I assume it is for NRL players only and probably based on last years stats etc.

    Hindmarsh is the best second rower in the game!
