Wiki better than Roberts by far.

Roberts was good. But not amazing even in his day. He gained much mana and shine to his career for quite rightly fucking up Gary Jack's face beyond all point his mother would be able recognise him in the biggest piece of thuggery ever. It was actually cowardly by Roberts as the method in those days was to double team people. One Kent would hold the victims arms back so he couldn't defend himself while in this case Roberts had full reign for about 90 seconds to reign blows into Jack where he wanted while Jack couldn't defend himself.
That said it was universally regarded as a respected move by Roberts and the game's administrators and his judiciary were lenient. Everyone hated Gary Jack across NZ and australia because he was the kid in class that sat at the front and narked on other kids if they ran in the hallway. Hope that analogy made sense, Gary Jack in other words was a goody two shoes.

All things considered, Jack was lucky Roberts decided just to use his fists...

$10k on roberts.

Woods is interesting. Twice dally M prop of the year. Then faded to a powder puff. But in his day was a 160+m per game ball playing prop. Across his career Woods is average. At his peak he was everything you wanted in a prop. 2015 Woods was described as the best ball-running front-rower in the comp by Blocker. My team is all about ball playing...

hmmm

Woods probably had the highest work rate of any prop when he was at the Tigers. However there’s only been one of the Fab Four from that team that’s improved and reached their potential, and it’s not him. As you say, a powder puff at the Sharks.

Ian Roberts all day .

Wiki played his best in the centers anyway.
Bell or Vagana tough but Vagana didn't hide in england while he was playing
Ughhh...

Dean bell - my favourite player as a youngster.
7 x challenge cup winner including 3 as captain - proven winner. There was an aura about him, with being based in England and coming back to the kiwis as captain!

Wrighty... I had a perfectly balanced team and you throw in this bonus round curve ball.
