    As a kid I used to love Fa'afili for his try celebrations. I can't clearly remember if he was a good player or not, though

    So here it goes;

    Brisbane Broncos: Scott Minto

    Canberra Raiders: Josh Hodgson

    Canterbury Bulldogs: Hazem El Masri

    Cronulla Sharks: James Maloney

    Eastern Suburbs/Sydney City: Jason Cayless

    Gold Coast Titans: Preston Campbell

    Manly Warringah Sea Eagles: Steve Matai

    Melbourne Storm: Cooper Cronk

    Newcastle Knights: George Carmont

    North Queensland Cowboys: Matty Bowen (just ahead of JT)

    New Zealand Warriors: Sione Faumuina (despite his off-field digressions was always my favourite player)

    Parramatta Eels: Nathan Hindmarsh

    Penrith Panthers: Luke Lewis

    South Sydney Rabbitohs: Roy Asotasi

    St George Dragons: Wes Naiqama

    Wests Tigers: Benji Marshall


    And my team (excuse the bias):

    1. RTS
    2. Vatuvei
    3. Matai
    4. Toopi
    5. Meli
    6. Marshall
    7. Jones
    8. Paleaaesina
    9. Marsh
    10. E. Tuimavave
    11. Lauti'iti
    12. Mannering
    13. Faumuina

    14. B. Webb
    15. Price
    16. L. Lewis
    17. J. Cayless

    A couple of odd choices. Tuimavave was always one of my favourite players, especially in 06 when he was beast for us. I actually would've had Faumuina at 5/8 as I always liked the idea of playing him there and sorta wish Cleary persisted with it, but went with Marshall as it wasn't really proven. A Matai/Toopi centre combo wouldn't work either as they were both left side players, but a man can dream.

    To be honest mate, I'm a bit lost on how Jake Granville can be your favourite Nth Queensland player? Is a relative or something :)

    Well...

    Um, yeah I have to think about it. OK, the Cowboys were firmly my second team throughout their great run, circa 2014-17. So much so that I went to one of their GFs, my brother went to both. I just thought Granville, all bow-legged and shaggy-headed, was a character. He was in everything, his commitment and particularly his service out of dummy-half was excellent. This all seemed in contrast to the Warriors.

    In fact, I used to think 'a player like him would never come here (to the Warriors)' and I was right. He'd probably come now though, as he's faded somewhat, much like the team he still plays for.

    Granville is such a mystery. Was phenomenal (the real motm in the '15 grand final)... then just stopped running and was never even close to the same player.

    wtf happened?

    You'd have to think coaching, right? Curbed insticts?
