    Last 20 Year, Origin sides

    Post by Ice on Tue Jun 06, 2017 9:09 pm

    Simple task, choosing players that have played from 1996 onwards, make your best state side. Main assumption is, side is judged on players at their peak, not where they may have been at when they last played Origin, i.e. Someone who last played Origin in 1996, who you'd assume was not still at their peak.

    Players who have debuted this year not eligible.

    2. Wendell Sailor
    3. Steve Renouf
    4. Greg Inglis
    5. Justin Hodges
    6. Darren Lockyer

    1. Minichello ( was gonna go Hayne, but Mini needed to be in the side and due to lack of wing options other than Hayne, decided to run with this. His defence and support play and kick return were sublime, Slater before Slater took it up just a notch)
    2. Mullins (underrated, great kick returner, great under the high ball and could find the try line)
    3. ET (one of if not the best defensive c/w we've seen and very strong in attack, the consummate professional)
    4. Girdler (goal kicker who could do it all another absolute professional)
    5. Hayne (please, two Fittler medals from the wing, what can't he do)
    6. Daley (owned Origin, could have had him in the centres but like him here)
    7. Johns
    8.Lazarus (possible the best prop of all time, a winner, just not at politics)
    9. Buderus (second best hooker of the last 20 years and at his best could match it with Smith)
    10. Harragon (great prop, inspirational leader)
    11. Hindmarsh (at his best he was a great ball runner with a wonderful offload and just a rock in defense)
    12. Kennedy (Tallis' contemporary, they had some ding dong battles)
    13. Fittler (centre, 6, Lock, where couldn't he play, another who owned Origin)

    14. Wing (oh how we long for what wings bought to the table, amazing off the bench at his best)
    15. Menzies (try scoring forward who ran better lines and supported the ball carrier better than anyone)
    16. Pay (ouch, could tackle, hit harder than gillmeister)
    17. Fifita (looks like he is finally reaching his potential, look out if he can maintain it)

    Walker to fullback. Gidley to captain wearing the 18 and sitting in the coaches box.

    Damn strong side, son! Smile

    Reckon you've shove Alf and Hodgo in there just because you couldn't leave them out, but... as much as Hodgo is my favourite player, I'd shift the following to make things more... positionally correct?

    Lockyer to fullback
    Langer to the halves with Thurston
    Probably Darius Boyd to wing - outside of Inglis, this was the greatest try scoring combo in SOO history. Hard to argue, even though in a one on one comparison I'd have JH!
    Slater out
    Berrigan for the #14, though you could make the case for Cronk or even Hodges as the super sub. Hodgo covers 1-6. Cronk and Berrigan could also hook.

    But - it's all nitpicking. Jeeez there have been some unreal players over the years!

    Forget Walker, yep, it was a dud selection in a dud position but he will play Origin again, they just need to select him in the right position.

    McManus, that's the guy that's been left out.

    He was the one I was disappointed I couldn't find room for.

    You could make a dud NSW team just from dud wingers. How did Uate & Williams miss out?
