    Nah 88 is good.

    Not too many on here could really tell how good someone like a Norm Provan really was.

    Yeh thats my thinking. There have been so many players play in the history of the game we will end up with teams of players that no one has ever seen. The period of 1988-2009 in the NRL/NSWRL/ARL has had probably around 2500ish players, thats plenty to pick from for 12 teams.

    Interesting you have an all time draft, yet you can't pick players from the greatest Rugby League side of all time (St George 1950s). Think it is pretty stupid tbh.

    Yeah that's part of the reason I questioned it. Who cares if people haven't seen everyone play, it's been the same for basically every other draft and hasn't been a hassle. I'm fairly certain you won't get a team that is made up entirely of players that no-one has actually seen play simply because there will most likely still be a modern day bias.

    Tell me where it says its an all time draft?

    Anyway if people want to make it a bigger period then I'd suggest Post WWII then.

    I disagree, how can anyone here judge anything earlier then the 80's if you didnt see them... Im with Simon all the way and say it should be 88 and on...

    Yeh I like the idea of 88 as we can can probably have a better idea of who has the better sides judged on what we have seen ourselves. Also would make it more interesting competing for only the more modern day players.

    Already have 12 which is I think is the most we should have for these sort of things. You can be next in line if someone drops out.

    Ok I think thats fair then, any player that played in Australia Post WWII is eligible to be picked.

    Dale has about 4 hours to pick before Blewy can go.

    Sorry, it's like 6am here, just woke up.

    So many to chose from, but think I probably have to go with Wally Lewis who just sneaks into the time scale and is a shoo in for any all-tine QLD/Kangaroo XIII.

    We are going with anyone 1945+ now.

    Lewis obviously still a great pick, probably would have been my top pick.
