Not sure if this topic has already been posted lately but I thought it could be interesting to discuss. If you had to nominate one, and only one, favourite all time Balmain Tigers, Western Suburbs Magpies or Wests Tigers player, who would it be? Give the reasons for your selection.
I found it incredibly difficult to choose one. Players that sprung to mind included; Wayne Pearce, Ellery Hanley, Larry Corrowa and Mick ‘Ginger Meggs’ Neil from the golden 80s era and Benji Marshall and Brett Hodson from the 2000s. I’m sure my choice from the very recent past would have been James Tedesco but he defected so I will rule him out.
In a close tussle between Junior and Marshall, I’ll nominate Benji. I’ve always tended to favour attacking players and Marshall (bias aside), at the peak of his powers, had the most audacious attacking flair, combined with sublime skills, I’ve ever seen in my whole, entire life of watching league.
