2. Dennis Moran
3. Jarrod Sammut
4. Glen Air
5. Shaun Edwards
6. Josh White
7. Jamie Soward
8. Danny Orr
9. Leo Dynevor
10. Luke Gale
11. Craig Gower
12. Kevin Langer
13. William Barthau

And no mention of Riley. Because he was too good to be contained by any list.

That list does unfortunately show when I started following the club and that, as an old man, I think everything was better in the past. It also reflects when I started getting confused about who was playing scrum-half and who was playing stand-off (and sometimes hooker). I've probably got a few wrong here.

I tried to explain rugby league positions and what each position did to someone I dragged along to a game a few years' ago. Who fed the scrum for us throughout that game? Kieran Dixon. Not the scrum-half like I'd suggested.


Agreed, once the rules changed & scrums nolonger pushed you could probably swap hooker, lock, SH & SO without problems. Any list will always be limited by who you have seen so newbies will not have a large pool of talent or any talent to chose from. For what it's worth in no particular order, my list:
Reg Bowden
John Dalgreen
Ray Ovens (taken from us far too young sadly)
Johnny Plath
Mark Riley
Josh White
Shaun Edwards
Denis Moran
Mark McLindon
Danny Orr
Craig Gower
Jamie Soward
Jarrod Sammut

Bench:
Like Gale
Dave Cruickshank
Mike Davis
Tulson Tollett

Not sure many teams have had that array of talent, shame most didn't stay very long. :(

Lordy Lordy how could I have forgotten Tommy Leuluai from that little list.

Glen Air, Luke Dorn, Karle Hammond, Scott Hill

Didn't include Luke or Scotty as thought they were more No 6 than No 7. Both wonderful players though. As you mentioned earlier Buzz, doubt we will see their like again which is a real shame.

Kieran Murphy was a good 7 and didn't Brett Daunt fill that role too before he moved north, talking of which Tuliatu has joined Newcastle

As part of our one in, one out announcement policy. Tuliatu to Newcastle.

Completely forgot about Daunt, deffo a good player as was Murphy. Didn't he come from Notting RU? We seem to have given up on local RU talent who at least knew how to catch & run with the ball. You might think with Union in a spot of disarray financially, there might be some options there at least for a decent goal kicker.

No sign of these other World Cup players we have made offers to. Hope Cakeman hasn't confused the League WC with the football one. :D

Maybe they are looking for more than an accidental coach without assistants.

Pity, I thought he was pretty effective at times last season.

You would think the the financial issues that RU are suffering, you would think that some decent players might be tempted to come over to the dark side.
