    Gutherson would have won the Dally M a few years back had he not done his ACL. He was well on track. He is BA’s greatest ever recruit. We should be extending him tenure soon and giving him an upgrade. The man deserves it.

    He reminds me of a modern day Ray Price, my favourite Eel of them all.

    How about Vince Fawcett? We probably didn't quite 'tap' his potential... He had a tendency to turn to water on occasion...

    That man was a genius with the ball in hand. Chronically underrated IMO.

    3. Dick Thornett

    Hyperbole much? The kid is a star. Have you even watched him play? By what you are saying it sounds like you are just going off the nonsense that someone like Pou would go on about without even knowing who Harry Grant is.

    Maybe you should sit down and watch a few of Harry's games. Better still, do it with Pou and then come back and you can both tell me how Harry over plays his hand and runs every tackle.

    He wasn't the best Rookie of the year and touted at the same time to be an Origin bolter because he runs every tackle.

    As for Mahoney not having a running game? Well he has got one and it is a very good one, but he doesn't use it anywhere near enough to keep the markers honest or exploit their weaknesses. That is the point. Not that he can't do it. You should listen to someone like Ennis on how a good dummy half should engage the markers and defensive line and then ask yourself if Mahoney does it with and regularity?

    Steve Edge doesn't get a run? Even though he didn't play on the edge?

    If only boxhead never discovered girls, or boys, he’d be able to give us a list of our greatest eels imports.

    Maybe you should sit down and do something else than bat off about Harry Grant
