    "Johns, considered to be the best league player ever"
    ^ BTW is that statement true?

    Anyway, great to have Plummy thinking out of the box fo new ideas. You gotta love those Kiwi coaches. I hope this happens more with our Saffa coaches, but it's good that a bench mark is being set by the Sharks.

    Yes, the statement is true to the majority of fans and aficionados alike.

    He was also a pill-head wasn't he?

    It has nothing to do with his playing ability though.

    It's between Joey Johns and Wally Lewis - but only because Australians completely disregard all European players. Shaun Edwards should really be up there, and probably Jason too, but his time in Union means he's really a cross-code player rather than a League player.

    Woah. I was in the bookshop today, and I had a bit of a read of the biography of.. Andrew Johns! And even freakier I was reading the chapter about his potential switch to union.

    It is. People will say "But he took drugs!" but they don't realise they were recreational and the drugs probably affected his on field performances even more. In his book he talks about the differences of the game and said union 10 years ago was free flowing and great to watch, but nowadays it's too structured and opposition are too much in each others faces.

    Is David Campese still living in South Africa and coaching one of the S14 teams?

    Yeah he's here with the Sharks coaching. I believe he has married a Saffa and has settled here.

    Of the two I'd edge towards Lewis but Johns is certainly one of the greats.

    Ellery Hanley is the best player I've ever seen. Pure magic........
