I reckon it is a pretty decent list, I reckon in a couple of years time (2011) if we win the WC, guys like Carter and McCaw will move up the list and possibly Ali Williams, Mils Muliana and Tony Woodcock may feature. Interesting to see Cullen or Nepia not being best Fullback, but Don Clarke taking it out. Also the list proves one thing, Props are well underrated Very Happy

Thing with Don Clarke is he was just a freak with the boot - Cullen's lack of a kicking game drops him down the list in some people's minds. And Nepia was just too long ago to be thought as much by modern day people

Apparently colin meads had a brother who was a better prospect than him but had to sacrifice his career to look after the farm.
