    Kenny Edwards is the greatest Kiwi to grace the Australian sporting landscape since Bonecrusher

    matt wright has done wonders for us whenever he has been given the chance, high possibility he will get put in the scrap heap due to the salary restrains we will have which will be unfortunate if he just sort of drifts off the grid

    Zeb Taia, what's overlooked about him is he got injured in the warm ups for the Titans game against the Broncos in the finals and couldn't play. It probably hurt them more then acknowledge after he was the best forward on the field for them when they played the Cowboys the week before.

    Shaun Fensom is still underrated, the bloke is possibly among the top 10 forwards at Mounties.

    I know there are some Raider fans wondering if it's in Shaun Fensom interests to go. The Canberra Raiders have amazing depth in the forwards and some have wondered just like Paul Vaughn it's in Fensom's interests to look else where. If Dave Taylor starts firing, it could make the Raiders forward pack even more crowded.

    Hello there old FRED!

    Matty Head.
    During Saints mid 2000's 'successful' period' I remember him being a bit of a gun when fit. Had a pretty sharp cutout but his short kicking game was lethal. Think it may of been the 05-06 Anzac match when he had the ball on a string that day. A shame he played less than 100 games of 1st grade due to his body not being up to it.
    I'll add Clint Greenshields as an honorable mention too. Was filthy when he went to SL.

    Darren Britt for me at least as former players go.

    Played for Australia but never got a blues jersey for some reason.

    This might be controversial but going to say Tom Burgess.

    Was always in the shadows of his brothers in previous years but this season without them he’s stepping up to be one of the best props in the competition!

    Josh can't win.

    When he's rated, no one rates him. When no one rates him, people say he's underrated.
