Something being done on the twitter account over the coming weeks which should be interesting:


Pennell currently leading the full-back vote unsurprisingly.

Difficult choice, but afraid it has to be Chris Pennell. All the others were brilliant too, but think CP was the more solid player.

They’re doing the same on Instagram.

I was torn between CP and Thinus
Thinus for me ... it would have been CP if he had learnt how to pass earlier in his career and not just in the last 2 years! I also think he would have more caps if he had passed more

Latham for me. In a different class to the others, even though we only saw him at the tail end of his career.

Much as I admire CP as a loyal servant, his habit of trying to run it out of defence and getting caught and isolated drove me mental over the years.

Surprised that Le Roux is omitted.

Or he may have been mentioned already?!

Latham was by far the most gifted full back we have ever had at the club, he is probably one of the best full backs in Wallaby history so that is very hard to over look that if its judged purely on talent but for me I go Chris Pennell who has been a top player for the side for a number of years and its his very good quality with combined length of service that makes him my pick for the team.

A favourite memory is seeing this player score a try against Worcester and being rapturously applauded by Worcester supporters.

I seem to remember that this surprised a few casuals who had turned up to see the last game of the season and who, we hoped at the time, would understand a little of what rugby is about - and maybe even attend more often.

Bryce certainly, but I also think Garvey, personally

He had a slow start, but when he hit his straps he was incredible

I am not on twitter and have no desire to be so that precludes me from this.
Agree.
My input here is purely notional.
I did briefly try Twitter, decided not to continue.

Millsy and Lombard. I have to choose Thomas, I’ve still got 2 of his training tops and a beanie.

And they still fit me, which they certainly wouldn’t do him.

Weir for me and Goode was a very good player but he was never at his best at Warriors due to his age, conditioning and dislike of Richard Hill. Weir has been good on consistent basis.

Yes there’s not much doubt about which way that one will go.

It does tell a story about our great list of top class scrummies though doesn’t it?

Bruce Fenley was with us for 4 years....1996/2000.

How many folk voting in this survey would have even heard of him, never mind actually have seen him play?

Still, fills the time doesn’t it!

Well exactly. Mind you, he was a bit of a nob, so maybe ruled out.

This survey smacks of “I can’t find anything interesting to fill the space so this will have to do”.

Yes, Mullen the best technician.

Although there aren’t many great long serving club men like Mr Windo. Should be a close second.

Well, it was a 2 horse race between Mullan and Windo when I voted but Bower has won comfortably :thinking: They had tweeted 'may have to launch an investigation into this one' but that appears to have been deleted. Does Ryan have a large family or something? :whistle: Anyway:

Hardest choice yet.

Lutui and Fortey much loved and for good reasons, Annett looks great and at 28 still got many good years to come, but for me Creevy has to have it.
By ROLLO
#11916
Surprised that Val Raparva -Ruskin wasn't included. Has Bower actually won?
Windo for me every time, and Crevvy at Hooker.

Ryan Bower is coach at Droitwich Rugby club.... i wonder if some of that club voted fro him en-masse

1558 votes for the loosehead vote which is more than any other position so definitely something amiss there. Gus wins the hooker poll. Tighthead:

Looking at those who responded with a tweet for Ryan, there are quite a few that have Droitwich RFC connections... He is very very well thought of there..

Goldfinch that still does'nt make him the best loosehead, in fact he isn't even the seventh best.

Windo, Mullan, VR-R, Waller, Black A , Black C, Linnet,

Agreed, but there is always a caveat with online polls, someone will always try to "fix" it.

The rest are fine I think.

For anyone mystified, Chris Raymond left Worcester 20 years ago after a 4 year career.

Anyway...this will go to Craig and Donncha, despite Rawlinson probably being a better all rounder than Craig.

Couldn't agree more; Gregg was a proper lock, whereas Craig was a pure lineout specialist (and a good one) but didn't do anything else. I do appreciate that it's akin to blasphemy to put forward that point of view, but it doesn't matter as people will vote for him anyway.

Lewis for me.

Sanderson misses out due to the whole Cheltenham mafia thing and not standing up as a captain when he should have.

Yes, I know what you mean re. Sanderson, seemingly not the world’s nicest bloke. But I was swayed by on the field ability, where for me he was a step up from t’others.

Interesting how views differ on that time.

I have always found Pat attentive, charming and with an attention to detail that did him credit.

Always had time for fans. Guess who got my vote :thinking:

Sanderson every time. Off field is another thing but on field as open side and captain he was immense and a major reason we stayed uo in the first season.
