1st Grade Fringe

At the dogs - yeah completely stacked side (I mean they had Asotasi, SBW and JT on the bench)... but the Cowboys 2005 side wasn't that stacked... A lot of experience and a few journeymen (decent props - but lacking a bit in other areas IMO).
I'd love to be wrong, and I hope I am, but right now I'd say we'll be lucky if Shaun Johnson deserves to win a Dally M (let alone actually manage to win one given the inherent bias towards Australian players in the judging)...
Johnson has it over Thurston in all aspects aspects of the game skill wise, he's just a freak of an athlete, but where Shaun Johnson is an athletic freak, Thurston is a competitive freak with a very good skill set to back it up...Thurstons absolute will to win is unparalleled in the game.
