Wow, Fifita better than Sludge? Snowman would not have seen Sludge play so I'm not sure how he can judge that.

I have though and while peak Fifita was an absolute beast, Sludge was not only tough, fast and could kick goals, he was a real leader.

Hard to judge a forward compared to a back, but I would go with Sludge too.

I'm not necessarily saying Sludge was better, but to say Sludge isn't even close to Fifita is idiotic, even by Snowman's standards.

peak fifita is the best individual player we have ever had and its not close
How long did we have a peak Fifita for? Would you say 2014 - 2017ish? Trying to remember how good we had it.

Such different positions that it's very hard to compare.

If I had first selection out of a team of Sharks greats, from the player's I've witnessed, it would be Steve Rogers 1st by a country mile, Gavin Miller 2nd.

I'd pick Fifita first at prop without a doubt.

Fun fact, Aaron Woods won Dally M Prop of the Year twice during that time span

On his day Fifita was awesome & could turn a game but unfortunately there were many days when he was very average . Agree Sludge is up there but there have also been a couple of others I would rate ahead of Fifita overall , like Gavin Miller , ET & another fella by the name of Gallen .

Even when Fifita didn’t do anything spectacular he usually had good workload stats, doing the regular front rower stuff
