Great photo of them both.
Who made it in that was better then Nathen Merrit ?
Nathan Blacklock and Wendell Sailor. Our Nathan might have been next in line, I’d reckon, though he was perennially under-rated.
Also worth claiming Nathan Peats (hooker) as one of ours, given that he is a junior and started his NRL career with us.
Greg bird fmd
Matt Bowen is the big omission!
They should have named 17
I would have picked Bowen at hooker
No surprise with Peats. He was up against Anthony Mitchell and Travis Waddell.
Agree on the fact they should’ve named a 17. So Bowen, Merritt and Presto could still make the side.
Greg Bird, never liked him as a footballer. Always a dirty player. Plus when he had that altercation with his ex girlfriend he tried to lay the blame on his roommate. Luckily his mate was playing in a golf comp at the time, so he couldn’t have possibly done it.
This isn’t 2000s but this would be the greatest indigenous starting 13 imo
2: Yow Yeh
Best 17 of the 2000s in my opinion Daley retired at the end of 2000 so he misses out for me he was average that season too a shadow of his former self, i’m a scotty prince fanboy so maybe a bit bias there same with Yow Yeh god he was good such a shame
Can anybody think of any other indigenous hookers ? The only one in my head is peats and Preston Campbell could play there as well
Then there is Ricky Walford and Anthony Mundine.
Did Daley ever play lock? I think not.
