      I remember leaving the 2000 GF thinking the score flattered us and Luke Phillips was best on ground by a fair margin

        Mark Harris, Russell Fairfax and Artie Beetson are my favourites from yesteryear. Harris was the ultimate centre in my opinion; strong, athletic, fast and an ugly mother to boot - I don't mean his real mother of course. Fairfax was flamboyant, speed, guile, pretty and a better than handy surfer too. Beetson was quite simply the 'man' you wanted to have on your team - legend.

          My favourite Rooster players of the past are Todd Carney and more recently James Maloney.

          I am a bit younger than most on here and started followong the Chooks about 10 or so years ago. I remembered 2010 year and it was exciting and hoped Carney would make a long careeer with us winning Dally Ms and comps but it was not to be.

          Maloney made my Roosters dreams come true along with SBW, Mini, Jennings, Mowa and the gang.

                  Gees so do I and still in good condition - mmm only played it once - Mum said what the hell is that your playing - said it about most records I played though - I.e Never Mind the Bollocks here's the Sex Pistols - She hated it because of the Song- God save the Queen and others- and it went into the bin but I retrieved it though- no damage done

                  Bit of Info on Joe Reaiche below which is interesting reading - always thought he was Aboriginal - Lebanese Background actually
