Interesting Alan Tongue is leading at present... I can understand that if you’re picking a forward, but not as a dummy half.
Tongue is probably being voted for similarly to why I voted CNK, character and what he has done to represent our club. He was a phenomenal clubman and very good player.

I loved Tonguey however his form in 2011 when he was used as a Number 9 was pretty mediocre.

The only way he comes into the team of the decade should be based off his form as a back row forward in 2010/11 and IIRC he played very little as one?
He didn’t play any match starting at lock or the second row in the 2010s. He played 24 games at hooker and seven off the bench. I agree, I wouldn’t put him in the top 17 as a hooker.

The poll will close on Thursday...

If people don't like the current outcome... people might want to change their votes or add to the votes! Either way, the poll will be declared in five days time! It'll be the will of the people.

With 2011-14 Campos knees, this team will struggle to win 10 games tbh.

He admitted to that and offered to cooperate. Other players who admitted to being drug cheats got three week suspensions at worst. I think that’s an unjust outcome. I’d say four years suspension for Earl is fair enough if others also also received the WADA standard suspension, but they did not.

He went outside his club (the panthers) to source his ‘supplements’ (hence his trafficking charges), there was’nt enough evidence against the sharks internal program which is why they got 3 week suspensions. And he hardly cooperated, the first time channel nine reported it he was talking about going to his lawyers 😂😂

The Sharks players who were suspended admitted they were taking performance enhancing drugs.

There isn’t a "GH sanctioned narrative". That’s just my opinion above. A fairly reasonable one, I think.

I dont know that there is a GH narrative, so much as there is a alarming lack of accountability, and justice being served associated with this. The Sharks players got 3 weeks for systematic doping. I dont know how anyone who follows sport can hand on heart say that is a fair and just situation.

And you can say whatever you want to say about what the club did and what the players knew, the rules by every anti-doping agency in the WORLD make this clear. The athlete is ultimately responsible for what goes into his/her body. And the reason for that is to avoid cheats hiding behind coaches/administration.

People can still change their vote in this one if they’re unhappy. I’ve backed Austin. Makes much more sense IMO as your utility than Tongue, particularly given Tongue was at end of his career and playing way out of position... and played limited games in the 2010s.

WADA/ASADA clearly had nothing on the players. They cut a deal to wrap it up. You cant blame the players for taking it so that they could move on.

And the Sharks players admitted guilt. WADA was very unhappy with what ASADA agreed to.

yeah i dont really give a **** about that, what i know is the Sharks admitted to systematic doping, and received 3 weeks suspension for that.
Yes the players should have taken that deal, but that deal should never have been offered. It is a matter of fact that the Sharks players were systematically doping. The punishment however that came about did not fit the crime.

How ever you'd like to slice that up, is up to you...but if you're going to sit here and tell me you think that was a fair outcome, then either you're a **** **** (and i dont actually believe that for a second) or you're lying through your teeth because on the GH there is weird NSW v QLD Sharks/Gallen sort of deal that you're wrapped up in

By having a poll and providing all the available options, with a full outline of the accomplishments of the players, including those specifically from the 2010s?

I’ll argue for what I see as the best outcome... but how the voters vote, is how they vote. Ultimately, the voters are the ones who decide.
