We could do with Scott Logan now. Probably the last old school prop we had as in he carried the ball a decent amount and hurt people in defence

Davico was 2005 wasn't he?

Our props in 06 were Seu Seu, Logan, Hargreaves and Feka.

Played 7 in 06 (and 05 for that matter) because in 06 we actually had Danny Orr at SO as organiser and Moran was still crap. He even played FB and was crap.

That's revisionism of the highest order, until Noble/Dobson (the bigger one IMO)/Fielden came in anyone couldve beaten that lot, and frequently did.

So....

Rads - came out of retirement to play 6 games at centre (badly, he later admitted he was purely on the team for leadership, and could offer nothing playingwise)
Richards - played at centre (badly)
Goulding - barely got a game. Avoids you mentioning McAvoy I suppose :lol:
Vaealiki
Dallas - final season before retirement
Borwn - barely got a game, and when he did it was at centre. Smart way to avoid mentioning Moran though :lol:
Orr
Fielden - was a Bradford player for most of the year. Granted he was superb for the 11 games he did play for us that year.
Higham - was terrible in a Wigan shirt, despite going well elsewhere
Logan
Fletcher
Hock
Lockers


hansen
Feka
O Carroll - barely got a game. Seuseu and Tickle are the men you are looking for
Godwin

.....that wouldnt beat us :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Except that wasn't an accurate representation of our 06 team.

FB Ashton v Hardaker - Hardaker
RW Calderwood v Davies - Davies
RC Richards/McCavoy v Sarginson - Sarginson (as a centre!)
LC Vaealiki v Gildart - Gildart
LW Dallas v Burgess - Draw (Dallas last season before retirement)
SO Orr v Williams - Williams
SH Moran v Leuluai - Leuluai
P Logan v Bullock - Logan
H Higham v Powell - Powell (Higham was gash for us)
P Paleaaesina v Flower - Draw (Feka better in attack, Flower in defence. Flower plays longer)
SR Hock v Greenwood - Hock
SR Fletcher v Farrell - Draw
LF 06 O'Loughlin v 19 O'Loughlin - 06 O'Loughlin

S Seuseu v Clubb - Clubb
S Godwin v Sammut - Draw
S Tickle v Navarette - Navarette (Tickle played prop that year and got smashed senseless)
S Hansen v Isa - Hansen
