    Maloney wouldn't be fit to carry the kicking tee off the park after JT curls one in from the sidelines and you know it

    3 grand finals at 3 different clubs with 2 wins and carrying a fourth into the top 4. It's time people acknowledge Maloney is a great of the game.

    He cherry picked each of those sides, JT had to play along side some of the worst first graders you'll ever see and year in year out and was the primary reason the Cowboys were competitive during those dire years, Maloney said as much last week on the Matty Johns show that he only ever went to play for sides that had an established pack

    At club level. Sure. In Origin he has never been as good as them though. No NSW half since Joey has been on that level.

    The Melbourne big 3/4 helps a lot there. Not saying they aren't all champions but they got a lot of help at rep level that is unprecedented in the game.

    In 2014 when half the Australian side was missing, most notably Thurston and Slater, Cronk was outright average that entire series and Australia ended up losing. I was interested to see how he'd do at the Roosters without those players and surprise surprise he's been nothing but ordinary.

    Thurston too is a product of having a great team beside him, I mean last year they managed to go all the way to the big one without him there.

    Having said all that, comparing Maloney to Thurston is too far, comparing him to Cronk is a bit more accurate. Thurston is probably the best player to lace em up since Joey Johns.

    Looks like a QLD coach will actually have to do some coaching now

    To clarify I think JT is one of the best ever. Maloney deserves to be spoken about as one of the greats though.

    Is this his way of sooking it up about actually getting suspended for something? I think so.

    Thanks for the dynasty, Cam. You're still a cancerous prick at NRL level. Also f**king lol @ NSW. *Gasp* "They're all gone! They're finally gone! Our time has come at last!"

    It has been a long wait, hasn't it.

    Oh the irony of a Broncos fan calling any other club or player a cancer on the game...

    Tell me some good Super League stories, because as everyone knows I appreciate a good war.

    And winning one against QLD without him there isn't nearly as good.

    Smith, Cronk and Thurston to come back for the series decider just to take the piss out of NSW one more time.
