Thanks, really shows our natural biases towards recent form. He started amazing then tapered down over time.

Jarrod Croker is an enigma. He's gonna retire with a load of records despite being a fairly average player with no rep career.

Everyone can name plenty of better centres in last 10 years but pretty much every NRL club would have happily signed him up if they’d known they could have a 10 year centre who is good goal kicker, and score around 10 tries per season, and will often be good enough to get a mention for origin but never good enough to actually get picked

He's not a crook player, just had better players in the comp when it comes to selecting rep teams

Yeah if you took every teams best 5 years and pit them up against each other I reckon we look a lot better. It's interesting that we're perfectly balanced but our actual results would be at extreme ends. The ladder implies we're middle of the road but it's quite the opposite.

without making a graffic, here is the ladder of every teams best season

Melbourne - 206
Roosters - 188
Brisbane - 180
Manly - 179
Souths - 176
Cronulla - 171
Cowboys - 170
Canterbury - 164
Penrith - 162
Dragons - 159
Raiders - 155
Warriors - 150
Wests - 146
Parramatta - 138
Titans - 133
Newcastle - 129

No wonder he’s always sore, running into ****s that hard so consistently.

Actually pretty much everyone on that list except Teddy gets pretty busted up

Bees dick in that tally lol

Yeah LOL. A metre or two in it.

Seriously though, just more proof that Gal belongs near the top of the discussions for greatest lock forward to play the game. Probably not the best, but he at least belongs in the discussions.
