    Default Redvee Team of the Decade: Hooker

    We move on the hooker spot and this should be relatively straightforward.

    It would be wrong of me to include anybody else (sorry Tommy Lee) but these two in this poll even though KC only played for 1 season before retiring.

    You need to make one selection from the two options selected and must consider their performances from this decade only.

    Keiron Cunningham (one season 2010-2011)
    James Roby (10 seasons 2010 - current)

    The poll closes in 7 days time.

    Doesn't feel like there is a poll anywhere. Suspect this is fixed. Stuart Howarth should be included. Absolute robbery, one of my favourite Saints players ever.

    Two of the finest RL hookers in the history of the game. We are truly blessed to have seen them both in the red vee!... Even more spoiled that they overlapped each other during their careers with one great taking over from where the other left off.

    We could go on forever and a day about who is better out of the two..

    However for this decade there's only one winner

    Two of the best hookers of the modern game. Haven’t we been lucky?

    Easier than everything else.

    We've probably had three the best ever hookers. In the modern game if you include Higham. He was very unlucky to be at Saints the same time as Keiron and then a young Roby coming through

    Very true... KC was an awesome player - one of the all time greats. If it was a vote for Saints best hooker of all time - I think KC and Roby would be well up there and probably be a close call between the two who gets the nod... with different opinions on who the best was. Maybe KC would shade it... but we're not talking about the best hooker of all time - just this decade. IMO there is only one winner in this decade.

    It's a toughie. KC was a truly great player but had the advantage of being surrounded by fellow greats, Long, Sculthorpe, etc,etc. Robes has featured in lesser line ups but for me has been the better player. With the current Saints team he may yet go on to garner further silverware, he certainly deserves it.

    Agree with that. If he’s fit, he’d still be my England hooker for the series next year.

    It’ll be interesting to see how we end up replacing him when the time comes.

    Sadly whether it's Smith, Bentley or Eaves, we are probably not going to have a match winner to match the last 20-25 years.

    Yup. Super Josh will keep him out anyway. Bennett sees something in him that pretty much nobody else does

    He plays in the NRL.

    I think thatís Bennettís mindset. Itís a shame that such a good coach (forgetting our win over Brisbane in 2007) is so blinkered.

    He's not a good coach anymore.

    I'm ok with him not playing international anymore. Keeps him in better shape for us.
