Deucey Deuce's Top Fullbacks Empty
PostSubject: Deucey Deuce's Top Fullbacks   Deucey Deuce's Top Fullbacks Icon_minitimeTue Aug 24, 2010 10:07 am

I am compiled my thought about the competition's fullbacks and who I really rate. There is 16 first-string fullbacks in the NRL, But i will be naming my Top 6 in descending order.

#6
- Luke Patten (BUL)
Possibly a suprising choice, But I feel Luke is the most consistent fullback out of any other fullback, while he isn't an obvious choice in terms of individual brilliance, But he leads by example and does his job week in and week out, Good Kick return game and is dangerous in general play.
#5- Darius Boyd (STGI)
Darius hit early form which saw him skyrocket to the top of the Dally
M Leaderboard, newly formed at fullback, Boyd suprised alot of people
with his quick rise to fame. However in recent times Darius has faded
and doesn't seem to have the fullback's instinct that he has had in
recent times, I guess consistency will come for him, A very good
fullback on his day but it's learning the trade and bettering aspects on
his game.


#4- Jarryd Hayne (PAR)
Jarryd's rise came through unbelievable performances last season at fullback, Jarryd has all the skills however he doesn't know at times when to use them. Jarryd's limited experience over a long period at fullback really reveals in his positional play in defence which is close to the worst out of any NRL fullback, also not the best tackler Jarryd is really only good for 5 or 6 game changing performances each year and I feel he isn't a team player for Parramatta, makes the wrong options at times and really lets the team down in that aspect, It's all well and good when magic plays come off because he has superhuman tendencies, But I feel at times Jarryd's defiencies at fullback outweight the positives he brings to the table.


#3-
Kurt Gidley (NEW)
Kurt is probably the most equally able player in the NRL, has skills
across the board that he can use. Kurt is one of the leading players
when it comes to kick returns and positional play in defence, his
consistency astounds me and always seems to pop up at the right time in
big situations for the Knights.


#2- Josh Dugan (CAN)
Josh has come through leaps and bounds since making his NRL debut after stellar seasons in the Toyota Cup, He then successfully made the step up showing his capabilities in his first season of first grade, as many youngsters faulter in their second year, He built on his previous season with being one of the most classier youngsters in the competition with agility to boot, Good positional play, ability to break tackles and consistency in a fairly starless Canberra outfit, Dugan is courageous in defence however still has things to improve on, that will all come when he grows into an adult body and gaining experience from being in the top grade.

#1- Billy Slater (MEL)
His awareness in attack and defence is No.1 in the NRL out of any player, He just knows when to chime into a backline and know where to be in a defensive motion from an attacking kick trying to find grass or defusing a play, great in support, great hands and halves skill set, In my opinion no one comes close to Billy at this stage.

surprised after all the man-love you've shown for Hohaia in the past he doesn't rate in the top 6. I'd rank him over The General.

Where's Mango?! Legendary fullback when he was in his prime (especially 05 and 07). Slowly starting to play the way he use to as well, which is a great sign.

Agreed with Billy Slater being #1. No one can compare to him atm.

Lol @ Gidley second and I'm fairly certain Patten should be in front of Hohaia.

Hayne is too erratic, His gameplay might suit origin but at club level he is wayyyy to erratic....

Haynes positional play is awful as well.

Billy is without a doubt the best FB in the game.
