Willie Mataka did at Easts didn't he?

Who was the fullback who's mum had a sad in the paper that he wouldn't be selected for Wests, went to Parra, played a dozen games for them and then was never sighted again in the NRL?

Was that Jake Mullaney?

As for forgotten player, I name Jody Rudd - still the worst twisted knee injury I've ever seen, never played again.

Yeah Mullaney was the one I was thinking of.

I think I saw him play reserve grade for the mounties (Canberra feeder) earlier this year.
Thought he'd kick on but he flopped.

Tom Humble is another one that comes to mind played 15 games in 2012.
He won a grandfinal with the Blackhawks I think in Q-Cup in recent years.
He is tiny.

Nick Graham. Sam Harris.
The one and only Bwaiiff.......useless on the field and seems a total flog off it.

John Grant or whatever his name was (the bloke with the killer highlights package who was a massive dud).
Was my mates personal trainer. Tells some very eye opening stories about his time at the Tigers. In summary, his cards were marked and some rumours that we have heard about the state of the dressing room at that time where definitely true.

Mitch Brown said as much as well.

Best joint venture name.

Is to the Wests Tigers as Motu Tony is to the Warriors.
Its an opinion!
