Default Tallest players in the NRL

Kane Evans from the Roosters 20's is 200cm, got me thinking would he be the tallest?

i remember playing against Group 18 when i was representing Gold Coast District and there winger was 7 foot 3. Absolute beanpole.

In the modern era i think Peter Sheils was 200cm and the huntsman Paul McNicholas was over 200cm (and absolutely useless with that sort of size)

Gavin Cooper is 197 and James Tamou is 194, fairly sure they're the biggest up here

Im pretty sure Tilse would be the tallest at about 200cm. Back in the day Matt Parsons was about 2m tall. Laurie is tall but he's definitely not 2m.

Darren Fritz was over 200cm wasn't he? I remember him towering over even the 193cm tall Paul Harragon.

^Don't think he was quite that tall. Although during Origin 2 1994 Ricky Stuart grabbed his jersey, jumped up on his back and punched him in the back of the dome. Ricky had to get up pretty high to smack him.
