ANNIVERSARY POLL | Wingers
Fullback, hooker, the second rowers, props and centres have been chosen and this week voting continues with the try-scoring machines on the wings to be found for the People's Choice 20th Anniversary Team poll.
To recap first, Brent Webb has been chosen at fullback, P J Marsh at hooker, Simon Mannering and Ali Lauitiiti in the second row, Steve Price and Ben Matulino as the props and Clinton Toopi and Brent Tate as the centres.
Now some real favourites come into contention led by the club’s try-scoring record holder Manu Vatuvei, who’s only four tries short of becoming the first New Zealander to score 150 tries in NRL history.
