it's always hard picking the best players from different eras but a few notable exclusions are rod ''rocket'' reddy,ted goodwin,kevin hastings,too many good footballers have been left out to take the list seriously.

title should be "Australia's 100 Greatest Players"

Maybe 40 would get in the 'Rugby Leagues greatest 100"

Agree about the heading.
However I think Australia would fill more then 40 places of the top 100 of all time.

When you read through the list there is every chance Steve Walters will be the hooker in the team of the century.

Why would he? Are we judging all players on how they would go in today's game. The hooker's role once was about winning scrum possession and was highly valued, it wasn't about who could run the fastest from dummy half.

What was Steve Walters win percentage in the scrums?
