Explain your "logic"...
The kid was only 19 ffs.
Billy Slater was older than 19, playing for Australia, when he threw a pass in or near the in goal that led to a Benji Marshall try for New Zealand. Do people hold that against him in considering him for Immortal status?
It was a long march from cadets
NEWS FLASH! NEWS FLASH!
Darren Lockyer was a poor defender. He couldn't tackle anyone bigger than himself.
I remember seeing Lockyer playing against France in 2004. Inside the Australian 20 metre line the big French second rower Jamal Fakir ran straight at Lockyer and knocked him flat on his back, before running over him to score a try for France. Afterwards Lockyer felt totally humiliated and unworthy, which was completely justified. He couldn't stop talking about the dangerous French No. 11.
Genuinely worthy Immortals were good defenders, like Andrew Johns, who was intimidated by nobody..
This is a legitimate argument.
Why did you post it from your alt account?
Thanks for letting us all know Adam.
Passing out parade at Puckapunyal?
He was also arrested in Brisbane 2010
Stuart was exceptional from 1989 - 94,
Of course if Clyde was made an immortal he'd step up to the mic and say "I don't deserve this, it should have been a Penrith player" like he did in 1991 in that mystery vision only you've seen right?
Yep and it's a big reason why talk of Thurston as an immortal make me lol
Exact words: "I feel a bit embarrassed winning this playing on the losing side but I'm still gonna take it". He did somewhat graciously go on to say that it was Penrith's day and quickly took his undeserved award and left the stage.
Agree Clyde is one of my all time favourites, but not even close to an immortal.
Let's have a look then.
Not sure I ever said he should be an immortal, that's more Moylan...
Oh thats, right.
Col van der Voort was outstanding for a bit, but Clyde was better...
In all seriousness, Clyde was phenomenal for a while, as good as any lock has ever been
For example, if Meninga was to be selected he should have stood out enough to have beaten Johns, but he didn't.
Therefore you're no longer able to be considered.
Meninga's and Johns' careers overlapped by only two seasons so you can't directly compare them.
The fact that their careers were so close works against Meninga here even more.
You cant have two very very good players in the same generation? Seems a bit arbitrary
One was a very very good player.
The other just a good player.
We all know which is which.
