    Dogs look strong...we've never had a lot of rep players in our team for some reason :roll:

    I would maybe have patmore in there over marteenee but that is being picky

    Good idea for a thread though.

    Sharks would be close to having the best spine if youd put Preston at 6 and Docking at fullback

    The research alone warrants thoughtful perusal

    I think they'd all find a way to lose.

    You've dedicated so much time and mind power to mediocrity here, I don't get it.

    Holy shit that Broncos side is bad. Surely we can do better than Corey Norman! Shane Duffy maybe? Doesn't make it much better.

    Did Bill Tupou never actually play for the Kiwis despite being on the 2011 4Nations Tour?

    Berrick Barnes? Can we have Gagai back?
    The Craig Innes call is spot on this would make him the #1 player followed by Patten.

    Good Eels side, but I'd have Tim Smith in for Penna, who goes in the centres for Jackson (useless!) I had a lot of time for Chad Robinson too.

    That opens up a can of worms doesnt it!

    If you are talking about SINCE 1988, then our halves become

    6) Brett Kenny
    7) Peter Sterling

    and we would be undefeated! But the OP clearly said no origins/tests at any period.

    I'd say our side would be closer to this:

    1. Wade McKinnon
    2. Luke Burt
    3. David Woods
    4. David Penna
    5. Scott Mahon
    6. Jason Bell
    7. Tim Smith
    8. Matt Goodwin
    9. Brad Drew
    10. Mark Tookey
    11. Ian Hindmarsh
    12. Glenn Morrison
    13. Mark Laurie

    14. Mark Riddell
    15. Feleti Mateo
    16. Chad Robinson
    17. Dean Widders

    That side would easily be in your top 4.

    Love the thread.

    Don't think he played SOO so Jason Taylor could be halfback for all 3 teams

    *just checked. He played 2 in 93 apparently

    I would suggest Dallas Weston instead of Hindmarsh.

    Wests Magpies would be undefeated champions.;-)

    If it was up to me I would probably find a spot for Dane Gagai in the Knights team.
