VOTE Former spine player to bring back

A young D. Lockyer (aka the REAL God of Rugby League) as fullback, followed by Khunt.
Alternatively I'd have Priddis or Berrigan for the dummy half position.

With Milf and a very promising Dearden in the team, halves are not the biggest problem in our spine, otherwise Allan Langer would come close to the top of the list.

It honestly has to be Darren Lockyer for mine 1 or 6, he was awesome as both. I did love what Hodgo did at 1 too though.
- Merged

For me it would have to be Jharal Yow Yeh...I would love to see him play again
I too wish JYY hadn’t had his career cut short. It hurts to image what he’d have offered us in the years since he was forced to retire. But he wasn’t a spine player.

I agree about JYY. I think he had the makings of a great fullback or centre as well too bad we never got to see it.

"For me, although i love alf, i think our team needs locky and the leadership and direction he was able to provide on a consistent basis and in those high pressure, clutch moments is sorely needed in the current team."

I swear.

its almost like half this forum never witnessed Alf play.up close.

Leadership , direction, high pressure, clutch...?

I mean locky was great, but if those words are to be synomous with one bronco's player, then it is Langer.

Let's bring back Sam Thaiday to play hooker.

But seriously, I would bring back either Kevvie or Locky. Leaning more towards Locky.

Kevvie would probably suit this side more, though.
Why did u go kevie over lo

I get your point, alf was and is my favourite of all time and he did hold those qualities. What i meant was, in the current team, i think locky would provide a calm and measured approach our current players need.

Because I think the style of attack we're trying to adopt would suit Kevvie better than what it would Locky. I think in terms of playing off the top of your head, Kevvie was better in that department whereas Locky was more structured in his 5/8 days.

However, Locky at fullback, I would definitely take because Locky at fullback would trump Kevvie.

Gillett’s finals experiment at #6?

Nah, Locky any day of the week for today’s game. Alfie if it was the pre 2002 era gameplay

With Lockyer, he developed 3 different skill sets over the course of his career.

1st was a gun fullback
2nd was a gun 5/8th
3rd was pretty much a gun halfback in the last 2 or 3 years of his career.

So if we had to choose, I'd choose to combine all 3 of those into just one. A triple gun running, supporting, organising half.
