    Different style of fullback TBH, Dugan is great to watch when in form, Boyd runs on to a SKD pass better though ;-)

    Maybe the commentators were saying dugan needs more ball because we had no inglis, hayne, slater or even a boyd. He (and to a lesser extent Jennings) were NSW's only attacking weapons this year so of course they needed to get him the ball.
    Him and boyd are different players but are about equal, it all depends on who is in better form at the time if you want to argue who is better

    Agree. Don't see the mass hype about him being justified. Good defender

    He's Chris Housten with a better tackling technique. Must have pictures of selectors and commentators or something.

    Is suppose you need to be rated in the first place to be rated as an overrated player in the NRL. The player I am referring to is Mitch Rein.

    From my team - Dane Gagai. Decent with ball in hand and can't fault the effort, but terrible defender. If he improves that this year comes off the list. I think he is overrated by Knights supporters because we pretty much have no one worth getting excited about.

    Dugans hard to pin point. Seems to be one of the hardest guys in the game to tackle but has no passing game. Agree nsw seem to place undeserved importance on him. What's the actual record of wins with Dugan playing? I think it's like 2 from 8 and 1 of the wins was with him at center. Has he ever scored a try, had a try assist or made a like break in origin?

    The funny thing is the only people who don't rate Rein seem to be dragons fans lol

    Bryson goodwin seems to be loved by a lot of souths fans even though he has zero attacking game and horrible defence.

    You all hated him until Walker left and then he became a marquee player in a lot of souffs fans eyes.
