    Wasn’t it linked to Brett Stewart being the Prince of a Brookie - Gutho was lined up to be his replacement and was living the high life as a young, single, good looking, semi successful pro-sportsman and enjoying all the adulation that comes with that on the Northern Beaches.

    The sad part of this is he is a decent player, and by all accounts a great bloke.. but whatever twat who named him this, and those who’ve promoted it / made it stick have resigned Gutherson to ridicule, loathing, and general dislike amongst a great proportion of the NRL fan base.

    He was never regarded as a long term fullback at Manly because Tommy was always regarded as their apparent.

    His last couple of seasons he was an injury prone backup centre for old men Matai and Lyon.

    Gutherson does enough for himself. Seriously, the guy whinges to referees more than anyone in the league. Even Dugan only does it when he gets tackled.

    If you play a drinking game where you drink every time Gutherson has a whinge, you won't last 20 minutes.

    Why Mona Vale? Is that the only suburb on the beaches you can name? Gutho was a Kingfisher, not a Raider.

    Sorry but Moses is the little bitch of whining to the referees. Watch an Eels game and he is always whining to the referee. If you had to take a drink for every whinge Mitch has, you'd be gone after 5 minutes ;)

    He’s far from alone in that category. And definitely not among the worst (my opinion).

    similar to glen maxwell in the cricket when given the nickname “the big show”, he is embarrassed when people call him that, but it’s there now, and if he doesn’t live up to it, he gets ridiculed.

    I thought it was because his hair in 2017 looks like a crown of thorns and the King referred to Jesus?

    Who wants to be associated with Cromer?

    It's Belrose or GTFO.

    I thought because he bears an uncanny resemblance to the rugby league legend Chris King

    This thread is harsh on Clint.
    If being in the top 12 fullbacks in the NRL doesn't earn you the title of King, I don't know what does.

    Trbojevic has never won a finals match just like Wally Lewis.

    King Gutho is at 50%. Ray Stone is sitting on 100%
