Who do you think is the greatest League player of all time?

Well I haven't seen Lewis play, so I'd say Andrew Johns

Peter Sterling, say no more. The bloke took Parra to 5 grand finals and won 4 of them, nine test caps, 13 state of origin games and he got man of the match on four occasions, that is mightly impressive considering Queensland totally dominated the Origin in the 80's and blokes like Wally and Alfie got all the wraps because the fixture was a big thing then and it seemed to be more of a big deal then the actual premiership at times.

The game has definately advance in the time Snorky and Joey first laced on their boots, Of course people are going to automatically think Joey is the best player, But look at who Sterlo had to contend with in terms of the halves in his era, and then Look at Joey, He basically had no one that was ever going to contest him. Alfie was at the back-end of his career and blokes like Cronk and Prince and Thurston were only just into their own when Joey was nearing the end.

How am I biased when I say Peter Sterling?, I am a Queenslander and a Bunnies fan, nothing to do with Sterling's Eels and NSW. I am aware he was born in Toowoomba, but he still represented NSW.

Actually for once I agree with Deucy. He has been very objective in his response.

QLDer's will say Wally Lewis and New South Welshpeople will say Joey Johns.

So my answer would be both! lol

With all the different positions in the game and the different era's of the game, it's hard to just pick one.

My fav of all time (not saying he's the greatest ever) is Phil Blake. The guy just had the ball on the string with his trademark chip and chase. Needless to say I spent many hours in the backyard emulating him.

Andrew Johns he was magic everytime the ball came to him he had to make a miracle. and also Darren Lockyer has been a legend of the game.

Coming from a league clan i've been watching all the big games since i can remember. My opinion i reckon is naturally biased to Qld Players so if i reckon i'm biased i think it will always be state based bias.
My picks...
1. King
2. JT
3. Alf
4. Joey
5. Lockyer

best player since Wally ..JT
Most skilled player you'd want as an example for 7 yr olds ....Billy Slater
Fake Pirate.... Meyers

Of the players that I have seen play, Joey Johns takes this out hands down. And I am a Queensland fan in SOO.
