30 Years Canberra Raiders Dream Team: Hooker

To celebrate the 30th season, The Greenhouse has already conducted a series of polls this year to determine the top 30 moments in Canberra Raiders history. Now, as the season rounds out, we'll be conducting a series of polls to determine The Greenhouse 30 Years Dream Team... the best squad of 17 players in the Canberra Raiders history.

Some years ago, a similar vote was taken and this was the result:

1. Gary BELCHER
2. John FERGUSON
3. Mal MENINGA (c)
4. Peter JACKSON
5. Noa NADRUKU
6. Laurie DALEY
7. Ricky STUART
13. Bradley CLYDE
12. David FURNER
11. Ruben WIKI
10. Glen LAZARUS
9. Steve WALTERS
8. Sam BACKO

14. Brett MULLINS
15. Jason CROKER
16. Brent TODD
17. Chris O'SULLIVAN

So has the passing of an additional five years or so made a difference?

In familiar fashion, we'll take it position by position. Players need to have played 40 or more first grade games to qualify to be part of each poll. If you'd like to vote for a player not mentioned in the poll, you just have to post the player's name.

We'll continue with the spine and here are the nominations for hooker:

But seriously there are a few spots in this team where a poll just isn't required

This is one

Halfback is another

You'll have at least one more contentious spot when we do centres tomorrow.

I'm sorry - I've just spent a bit of time reviewing these selections- Does bloke who chose Woolford over Boxhead care to come back and justify his vote? Fair dinkum, its like saying Mike Veletta was a better batsman than Don Bradman. Come on, out yourself- who was it?

or is it another piss take?

Begbie, people have a right to their opinion and vote, that's what the polls are for!
