So that's three players locked in...

Don't forget we still have polls open, including the latest vote for the starting props. The second prop spot is still contentious. So vote here:

So that's four players now locked in...

Don't forget we have polls open for the props and second rowers at present.

The second prop spot is still contentious, so vote here:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21072

And vote here for the second rowers:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21097

Don't forget you can change your votes if you wish, and you have two votes in the polls for props and second rowers.

We've now called the polls for props and second rowers, with Ruben Wiki in the top two for both, he was selected in the second row, as he attracted more votes in that poll.

The poll for centres is now open: http://www.thegh.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21155

Plus the poll for lock is still open and will close soon: http://www.thegh.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21129

Also sad not to see Clinton Schifcofske or Ken Negas in there. Both were great for the Raiders.

Shif and Nagas, were good, bloody good, however their omission I can accept.

Mullins on the other hand was a once in a generation talent whose omission is totally unacceptable. I'd slot him in for Jackson or O'Sullivan- take your pick. Bottom line- he has to be there somewhere.

I'm sorry GE- I am am right on this one. Mullins should be in the squad.

I know this is a 30 year team, but would there be an argument for a couple of changes to the all time side? I think there is an argument for Shillo, Fensom and Dugan on the bench already.

Shillo is about 100km away from the Raiders top prop of all time. Give me a break, we have Lazurus, Wiki, Todd, Pongia, Backo and Lomax all ten times the player shillo is.

Calm down, who said he is better then Lazzo or Backo? Wiki played less then 20 games in the front row for us so I don't know why he is getting mentioned. If you remove the rose colored glasses and look past 1994 alone I think he deserves to be considered with Lomax, Pongia and Todd.

Ok, so my last call for potential changes to this side was a shocker, but would Papa or Hodgo have forced their way into the 35 year team next year?
