Just started thinking about this after watching Creagh score on Sunday. Ran a beautiful line, hit the gap then did the fullback with an early left foot step.

Others that come to mind include Frank Pritchard, Anthony Watmough and Sam Thaiday. Lewis Brown has been doing an admirable job for the Warriors this season as well and has been rewarded with plenty of linebreaks and tries.

Hoffman runs some pretty nice lines as well at times, just not quite as well as he did a couple of years back.

These guys seem to have the knack of always hitting a hole, and seem like the sort of guys that, as a halfback, you would love to have either running off your outside shoulder or a couple of players wide of the ruck.

Who do you think is the best? Who else is there that i've overlooked?

Haven't included a poll as all they inevitably turn into "Which team do you support"?

I love that play on how Hornby either goes short to Ben Creagh or Behind to Boyd but on Sunday i rarely see Creagh run inside but it worked to a Beautiful try.

Watmough and Creagh are definitely up the top when it comes to running lines. Gareth Ellis also runs a good downline, as well as Mark Minichello. Though you can't go past Creagh and Watmough for the best.

Scott Bolton runs awesome lines off a JT pass - hence his 14 line breaks from 20 games this year, the most of forwards.

creagh runs some great lines and would probably be up there with the best in the nrl atm.

It shows that if you run decent lines as a 2nd rower you dont have to be built like a tank and still do well

Watmough, for sure, gets my vote, Scott Bolton is not far behind.

Almost forgot, Mitch Abbusson and Liam Fulton are definitely up there when it comes to running lines.
