    I recall after one GF win where Sterlo won MOTM, he openly stated that Squizzy should have won the award. Given their similar appearance, PTs efforts were often credited to PS. I also recall Stelo being dirty that PT wasnt selected in that years Kangaroo Tour. How good of a number 9 would he be in todays game.

    I always liked Johnny Morris. Versatile, tough and a good worker.

    Not sure PT would be big enough to make it in today's game. He was 10 stone.

    I liked him too and remember how excited I was when we signed him from the Crushers because he was also an accomplished goal kicker. Still think that Brett Hodgson was fantastic for us and turned our attack around in the early 2000’s .

    Another notable mention is Brad Drew. With Hodgson he completely made us into one of the most formidable attacking teams in the comp and this happened quite quickly seeing that we had lost the ‘Canterbury 4’ and needed to change the way we played.

    There were other great runners in that 2001 side but those two were the architects in my opinion.
