Latham is definitely worthy of a star. Gregan shouldn't be judged just on his own performance (his tackling is underrated by his critics) but what he brings to the team as a whole: experience, confidence, leadership etc. You can't underestimate the effect a good leader has on a team, and we all know who is the real leader of the wallabies. I mentioned his defense is underrated; gregan consistently makes the big tackles when it counts. If a tackle needs to be made George is the most likely player to be there. A great example is vs the kiwi's. The AB's had maybe a 4 on 1 overlap with the single defender left being George. He charges forward and wraps up the ball carrier (Jack?) so he is unable to offload. He saved a probable try and something few other players would be able to do. He is missing a few more tackles than he used to but the fact that he is pretty clutch. Tuqiri doesn't deserve a star. We know he can be world class, but he just isn't consistent enough. If he started fending like he used to I'd rate him more highly. Spider, Larkham is definitely a star play. Pretty consistent and can get a backline firing like few others can. Mortlock, I'm not a fan but he is a great player, not sure whether he's worthy of a star. Also having 6 star players in the same squad is stupid What other kiwi apart from Carter (out of form) and Richie would you pick for a star? To me a star should signify world-class. I think there should be two different systems. Stars for provincial level and then stars for international level. Either have two different star systems (ie stars for provincial and stars for international), or use multiple types of stars, eg silver might represent a star provincial player while gold might represent world class.
