Ha ha - all good mate, I’m not getting sucked back into that conversation.

So you’re from Glasgow originally, eh?
Whereabouts?

How did you come to follow a footy team across the other side of the world?
Hey, thanks for replying.

I was born in Glasgow. A place called Bishopbriggs....you heard of it ? Lol

As for supporting the Bulldogs.....we moved to Leeds when I was young. So apart from support Glasgow Celtic (soccer) I got into League and coming from South Leeds I started to follow Hunslet.

Anyway....during our 87/88 we have three Aussie imports playing for us. One being David Gillespie. Amazing player and a genuine nice person too. So because i got hooked on 'cement' I followed him when he returned home and started supporting the Bulldogs.

Hard in those days of before the internet etc. My first live game on TV was the 88 GF. Where Hanley was smashed.

There you go lol....

Hi Nasheed,

To be honest, I would be happy to just keep the 2002 team. They would be over the cap; but so would any team of stars that will be suggested.

It would be make it more interesting if you put a salary cap on the team, then see what we could come up with.

Nasheed here,
Bit of nostalgia to buy time till round 3, whenever that may be.

Just wondering what everyone's team of the last 30 years is?

the only time is they have to have had a full season at minimum with us and you'll pick a team to WIN, so you can pick a fullback as a winger like I have, and a 5/8 to hooker as I have etc.

1 Rod Silva
2 Ben Barba
3 Kerrod Holland
4 Josh Morris
5 Reimis Smith
6 Braith Anasta
7 Ben Sherwin
8 Roy Asotasi
9 Terry Lamb
10 Willie Mason
11 James Graham
12 Josh Jackson
13 Greg Eastwood

14 Dean Pay
15 Sonny Bill Williams
16 Willie Mason
17 Gary Connolly

Fairly standard I know, except I know that everyone is surprised at Terry Lamb getting the number 9 spot.

I thought about it and we have never truly had a great hooker. We got rid of cook before he blossomed. And we had herherington who was more a Matt Ballinn type and not attacking like the new breed of hooker.
We have had plenty of halves so I thought I would utilise one at nine.
Hi Nasheed,

As I've just said in another comment - the team would have to be salary cap compliant. How would you choose it, based on the earnings of each player?

2002 we had a great team but I think minor refinements happened over the course of the next couple of years which resulted in us winning the title in 04. Vagana, Smith and Norton were the biggest losses between 2002 and our eventual Premiership in 2004 though. Honorable mention to the great Paul Rauhihi as well.

I haven't posted for a while, as I didn't want to ruin anyone's reading of genuine debate of a topic. Then I read the last 5 pages of this thread... There is 15 minutes of my life I will never fucking get back.
