    For pure Power and Fitness (and probably Wrestling skills) the old timers are like Schoolboys compared to today's Monsters, but I love the old timers Grit and toughness, Plus their pure Boxing skills were better.

    Growing up in the UK back in the 90s I loved watching guys like Andy Gregory and Ellery Hanley at Wigan. This was a golden era for league.

    I actually think some of the ball handling and carry skills were just as good back then. Seems to be a lot of crash work done my forwards these days and less finesse. Maybe I have rose tinted glasses ..... the good old days

    Power probably,a lot more emphasis on weight training these days and forwards are bigger. Fitness? i dunno,theres the interchange which means these guys can go for 20 mins then have a rest. Old school guys were seriously fit. The game was more dirty back then.

    Well Wigan proved around that period they were the best club in the world. Chariots Offiah was actually my favourite player,he was unbelievable. Even did it at test level,killed the Kiwis a few times. Incredible speed.

    Yep, I remember when Ellery Hanely came to Australia and played for Balmain. Physically such a freak, the speed and strength and alround physical specimen.
    Wigan were almost the entire GB team at one stage.
    I just remember the tough Guys: McDermott knocking out Sironen, Fielding not real big but tough. North of England is it, produces those teal hard nuts?

    That's the thing about Ellery: he'd Squat and Deadlift a bit to be such a strong runner, but he had speed as well.

    I think Gordon Tallis as the most ferocious runner of the Ball (before his Neck Surgery) and Adrian Morley as the most ferocious defender. Imagine those two standing in front of you
    Ruben Wiki was great to watch, so tough and hard for a smaller Prop, but all Maori's and Islanders are hard nuts.

    Thoughts @simo74 @bannedgerry @Timeah

    Barrie McDermott says Moz couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag. When your that tough punches make you laugh. Check out this clip about Moz, hilarious
