  • Your all time Roosters XVII?

    Really tough to pick, but i had to include Diamond and Harris. Bozo was a tough choice. Champion player, but fwit coach who took half our team to manly, but thought it best to include him as Freddy can play lock. The position i'm most unsure about is Ayliffe's on the bench. I went for two props on the interchange, but had difficulty picking the second. In the end i chose Royce over Salvo

    L Phillips
    A Minichiello
    D Brown (gk)
    H H Messenger
    M Offiah

    B Fulton
    K Hastings

    R Stehr
    C Wing
    A Beetson
    R Coote
    Sid Pearce
    B Fittler

    A Morley
    R Ayliffe
    C Fitzgibbon
    M Harris

    J Gibson (coach)

    Additionally, i tried picking a 'B' team too. Real tough to choose. fullback. there's McKean, Schuey, Fairfax, Boustead, Walker, Wurth et al would have been worthy picks, but in the end i chose Mullins jr. Saddler's centre position could have gone to Lydon. Ernie Norman could have got the 5/8 spot. Apart from Salvo I didn't know who to choose for the props, and I'm unsure about Pierce as an interchange secondrower.

    Brett Mullins
    Bill Mullins
    R Saddler
    J Brass (gk)
    B Bevan

    J Peard
    J Mayes

    C Salvotori
    Sandy Pearce
    I Mackay
    L Ricketson
    H McGahan
    A Norval

    J Cayless
    H Pierce
    B Reilly
    R Fairfax

    A Halloway (coach)


    What's your top Roosters team/s?

  • #2
    Nice work mate

    A few things with your team;
    - I wouldnt have Luke Phillips there, Minichello would be my number 1
    - Id have to find some way of fitting Ricketson into my side (possibly on the bench)

      I like some of your inclusions like Dave Brown, Ray Stehr ....but for the life of me I don't know how you could include Martin Offiah as one of the top two wingers ?
      Bevan, Landers, Mullins, Schubert, Boustead, Minichiello, Matt Sing, even his fellow countrymen Joe Lydon I think would be more deserving of a spot.
      Other than that, I think you've assembled a reasonable team. Imagine what they'd be worth on todays salary cap ?

            It's mainly due to his try scoring record. I guess though the nuffies in England of the time that he ran through inflated it a bit. If it was performances whilst at Easts he wouldn't be in the top squad

            Nice! Good to see Hughie on the bench.

              Chariots was a freak,just not in a Roosters jersey..

              I found fullback & wing the hardest choices in my side..

              Fairy,Diamond & Mini were in a photo,but Schuey got the spot due to his versatility & '75 GF performance..

              Wing was almost impossible..The choices were that close..

              Fulton's name makes me want to vomit..He ripped the club apart..

                If he was there due to his try scoring feats in England, check the try scoring records of Roosters Brian Bevan, Albert Rosenfeld and Lionel Cooper in England. He doesn't come near them.

                  Make it easier for myself. Out of the ones I've seen play.

                  8 Morley
                  9. Bonetti (if it's on defence stats) or Wing (if it's attacking flair)
                  10. JWH
                  11. Beetson (C)
                  12. Fitzy

                      What's your top Roosters team/s?
                      You're kidding with Offiah in the team. With centre spots a given, Mark Harris would be much better value even playing on the wing.

                        I would try and find a spot for John Ferguson.... brilliant winger of any era.
