  • What about Paul Taylor?
    Bloody handy little bugger.
    Former halfback was used to great advantage by Jack Gibson at P’matta as fullback, hooker and, incredibly, second row forward during the 1980s. Taylor’s versatility saw him used as a reserve in the Eels' historic grand final win in 1981 but he played fullback during the club's 1982-84 and 1986 grand final campaigns. Taylor often came into the front line and tackled relentlessly, allowing Peter Sterling to fall back and cover-defend. On one occasion during 1981 Taylor made a club record 52 tackles in a match, while in 1988, he scored a then club record-equalling 4 tries in a match against Canberra. He was a frequent visitor to English club football in the Australian off-season, playing with Oldham (1984-85 and again in 1988-89) but was cut from the P’matta club in bitter circumstances at the start of the 1990 season. Linking with Penrith he dislodged veteran Royce Simmons from the hooking role but a broken collarbone ended his Sydney career. Taylor later became a coach on the Central Coast.
  • Honestly is this a serious question???

    And lol @ Luke Burt.
  • All v useful players, particularly Schifcofske and Hodgson for me. Hayne has to be; but i would also include Scott Mahon from the dark old era of early 90's. Had some talent that boy. Snake imagine if Schifcofske had Haynes' talent......
  • Super, just left you a PM
  • Schifas for number 2 spot!, very underrated player.
    Was more of a team player than JH.
    JH obviously gets it on raw talent.
