I liked Dorn, he was very good to watch and scored some belters, but always thought he was a bit suspect in defence and that held him back from being a really top player.

I suppose when you look at the top teams and the FB’s they had during Dorn’s years it’s not as surprising, Leeds had Webb and Hardaker, Wigan has Tomkins, Saints had Wellens, Wire got Hodgson so their was done quality around the FB position during Dorn’s best years in SL.

Danny McGuire has a .61% hit rate playing in the #1 SL side of all time......Dorn has a hit rate of .65% playing for mostly cannon fodder. ....Burrows is .40%......not able to lace Dorn's Boots.

You name 2 Leeds players trying to put down an Aussie who had a better strike rate than either of those players who were playing in sides who were winning....Dorn played his games English with a side averaging 39% win rate.....yet he outscored your 2 leeds heroes Danny (67% win) and Rob (67%) per game per score......he's no Show Pony, but as I said, you know this and you're on the wind up!

Your in the wind up now McGuire and Burrow coukd not kace Dirbs biits yeah ok then if you say so, people will talk about those two for generations people have already forgot about Luke Dorn dont care how many tries he has scored.

Leeds fans might talk about them for generations, I`ve already forgot about DM to be honest and he`s still playing.

IMO Dorn was a decent player that played in average sides, Danny Mag was a decent player that played in a great side and Burrow was a good player that played in a great side.

So, when faced with the cold hard facts (statistics), you talk about "legendary status"....lol......you were the first person to refer to Dorn as a show pony, so there's at least one person who hasn't forgotten him. :SUBMISSION:






JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

McGuire was a significantly better player than Burrow.
McGuire turned himself into a very good half back from his early days which were built on speed and support play.
Burrow never really kicked on as a half which is why he was relegated to a support hooking role. Still had very useful impact don’t get me wrong and helped turn a few important games in our favour. However McGuire was the all round better player and played a significant, consistent role in Leeds victories

McGuire and Burrow were key to why they were a great side. You make it sound like they were a Ryan Bailey or Ian Kirke who were fortunate to be in that era.

I mentioned Jordan tansey as well, could have said Kevin Penny also and maybe a few others.
