    The DT have named their Panthers team of the decade. A few interesting admissions, like Nathan and Petero.

    Something mentioned in the article that I wasn't aware of, is that McKendry holds the record for the most games played for the Panthers over the last decade, which is 147.

    Their team is:

    1 MATT MOYLAN
    [​IMG]
    2 JOSH MANSOUR
    3 MICHAEL JENNINGS
    4 DEAN WHARE
    5 DALLIN WATENE-ZELEZNIAK
    6 JAMES MALONEY
    7 JAMIE SOWARD
    8 TIM GRANT
    9 PETER WALLACE
    10 REAGAN CAMPBELL-GILLARD
    11 LUKE LEWIS
    12 ISAAH YEO
    13 JAMES FISHER-HARRIS
    14 TYRONE PEACHEY
    15 SAM McKENDRY
    16 NIGEL PLUM
    17 KEVIN KINGSTON

    Dave Simmons a little unlucky.
    He scored more tries than DZW in his 6 years here. 49 to 41. Less hot head brain explosions too.

    I would have Michael Gordon there if the criteria wasn't team of the decade. His 2010 season was phenomenal. 11/12 injuries held him back though.

    Flash for Dallin would be my only change. If Lewis made it Flash should have too.

    EDIT: Actually, Nathan at 7 and Soward at 6 too.

    Our best team is a little sad compared to what you'd see elsewhere.

    2000 - 2009 would have been a better era.
    Wesser, Girds, Campbell, Gower, Priddis, T Puletua, etc.

    I would have found a spot for Kikau on the bench.

    I don’t think anyone would argue if the 2003 GF team was announced as the team of 2000-2009. Hard to think of anyone outside of that team that could’ve made their way in

    Gotta give Simmons a bench spot at the very least.

    I think we could’ve got flash in there over Whatuira. Flash was more deserving if it was a true team of the decade, I get the gf thing tho.

    Edit: Also a young frank Pritchard is hard to leave out of any side.

    Yeah good point about Flash. He came in at around ‘05/‘06 and hardly put a foot wrong.

    And I totally forgot about Pritchard. Maybe he takes Swain’s place

    Pritchard quite easily over most of the bench/2nd rowers.
    Michael Jennings over Paul Whatuira
    Michael Gordon probably over Rooney.

    100% on all 3 players. Swain out for Pritchard IMO.

    Had some amazing goal kicking streaks to, he’d regularly go weeks without missing.

    1 Moylan

    3 Whare
    4 Blake
    5 Mansour
    6 Soward
    7 Cleary
    8 Tamou
    9 Wallace
    10 Plum
    11 Yeo
    12 Fisher-Harris
    13 Lewis

    14 Peachey
    15 Campbell-Gillard
    16 Kikau
    17 McKendry

    Unlucky
    Gordon
    Segeyaro
    Maloney
    M Jennings
    DWZ
    Graham (left the club after 2010 season)
    Grant

    I only picked Soward over Maloney because Maloney and Cleary never gelled well.

    He played 147 games, but only 144 of them were from 2010 on.
