Martyn Madden is the biggest omission I’ve seen so far. He had a couple of seasons with us in the regional era. I think we won the league in one.

Biggest omission in more ways than one.

Top guy, obviously a very good player or better. Brilliant raconteur. His business should be doing quite nicely in this environment.

Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

I'm with you on Iestyn. Rob is still young enough to make the most of his undoubted skills but Iestyn just kept on coming at you and was a real warrior. I would also put Smiler ahead of Ken. Smiler was a monster scrummager. Over the next couple of seasons I think Ryan has the raw materials to overtake both.

    Rob as had a dip in form of late, but should have been on the last Lions Tour ahead of Marler, that season he was superb in all aspects of the game!

Tough choice between One Man Riot and Tadhg. I felt Tadhg was a better back rower than Lock. Wyatt was a better lock for me.

If Wyatt had tadghs attitude then he would imo have been as good as AWJ. To me should have been a test lion and a hell of a lot more caps. Remember Wyatt scoring from about 70 metres out and no one got near him including Christian Cullen. I suppose only Wyatt would be able to explain why he didn't achieve what he should have.
