Jarrod Mullen - Joey would talk him up each game or origin match
2 girls with a camera phone & a game of soccer at training finished him off from memory
Andrew Johns. He was a pretty good halfback but not good enough to displace Brett Kimmorley for ages, and Darren Lockyer had a vastly superior all round game and career and hairstyle in middle age.
Vaipana Tia Kilifi - the next big thing at Penrith about 5 years ago. Quite injury prone unfortunately and never cracked NRL. Last I heard he was playing in the Queensland Cup.
Keiran Foran /thread
Where the f**k did he piss his career away
Ahh Ale. Thats a familiar name.
Maurice 'Bobby' Blair from the Panthers. Was the complete package, just ate too many cheeseburgers.
Trent Waterhouse. Won a comp, played origin and for Aust all within 12 months and then pretty much fizzled away to nothing.
Jacob Loko, the best player to come through the NYC in 10 years at Parra.. it was literally pass him the ball and he would score a try.
Built like Sonny-Bill on steroids and was just freakishly strong for his age. Came into first grade at 18 when we were even more poo than now and he physically dominated most players he came up against.
Could have been anything but was just a brain dead idiot.. did have injuries which didn’t help but more the fact he was just lazy at Parra then went to the Dogs and just lost his shit off the field, got arrested a couple of times.
I read he signed a contract with Manly this year, not sure how he’s been going but still only 25 so you never know.
Changed his name to Tyler Randell and played a bit.
Fast forward 5 years and swap Moses Sulis name in there
I had forgotten about Todd Riley, your right, I cannot remember finishing the 1985 season, just checked him out and he played up to round 18 in 1985 then Garry Wurth took over from fullback, Todd did play the first game in the 1986 season but was never seen after that. I remember him scoring a brilliant try up at Penrith Park in 1985 where he intercepted a pass near half way then chipped over the top and scored, he kicked 7 goals that day too.i have a couple of games with Todd on tape against the Bulldogs and the Tigers in 1985’ in the Dogs game he makes a huge break and was mowed down close to the line by I think it was Steve Mortimer in a copy book tackle.
Bullshit. Never made the connection. Was a gun 5/8 in the 20's. Didn't see enough his skillset in First Grade.
Yep young Moses is like Loko reincarnated
I remember Nathan Gardner ripping the Roosters apart in one game at the SFS and not really sighting him much after that.
Talking of spewing. One night at the Castle Hill Tavern I went to the bathroom to find Tim Smith chucking up everywhere. On the doors, walls...everywhere.
I had to help him out. He was such a mess.
NSW ,Australian and Tongan rep player
Future premiership winner with the Eels
Still only 29years old
What a wasted career
Bevan French will be in this thread 5 years from now
No shit he's only 25. If he's not on the Brett Dallas diet he's still worth a crack for someone.
I think he played 1 game and scored for the mighty Cronulla Sharks so all worth those little things you mention for that honour.
Granted a couple have gone to decent union careers, thought they would have been better then they were in league. Could chuck the Lousi Brothers in there too
Separate names with a comma.
