    I like Daniel Tupou. He makes good runs from dummy and is safe. He's no superstar.

    Tamou was a beast when he was younger. The older he gets the less his impact.

    The theme of this thread is literally any player who had a good season a year or two ago and hasn't quite played at that standard since.

    Totally agree with this one, 3 clubs and the guy still lacks soo much discipline in his game. Just like Papali the other night, gets into the team cause he's 'big' but made like one good run all night.

    Well, to add to this I would also add Benji Marshall! He had that one debut season with all his fancy tricks, after that nothing. A true one hit wonder. Honestly, never seen the guy make a tackle.

    I'll join you. Guy has all the physical attributes but has a heart the size of a grain of sand. If he ever applied himself he could be arguably the best forward in the NRL, but just doesn't want to.

    Either one, Moses or Brooks, would have more sticking power than you.

    Any rating I give a player is the right rating as far as I'm concerned, no different to any League supporter who has a mind of his own . . . it's the feeble minded who dote on the opinions of so-called experts that make threads like this possible

    Actually, I DO remember these turnstiles that you speak of. Plenty of them when WT played the rabbits in the first round.

    FMD, are we going to have to put up with this newfound smugness till next season ?

    The season is over, alien. 2 weeks down the track, nobody gives a fkk about your rabbits. Or their victory.
    Get used to it.

    Sorry, got a lil off topic there.

    The single most over-rated player in the last 5 yrs is that Everingham winger for souths.
    Mods . . . this thread is done. Wrap her up please.

    some commentators wax lyrical over some players before they really do anything which i suppose has people feeling that the player in question is overated as a result.

    As Big Jack Gibson would say it's a simple game- he told Sterling for weeks to kick it to the seagulls- Sterlo didn't know what he meant nor was talking about until one game he jumped into dummy half looked down field and saw all the seagulls on the ground at the other end of the field- the penny finally dropped

    Paul Gallen. Has come right back to the pack ever since he stopped using Danks' peptides.
