Poor Joe Burns

In the last three years Matthew Renshaw, Cameron Bancroft, Aaron Finch and now Marcus Harris have all made their debuts at the top of the order for Australia, all in an era when our top six has been in relative flux and batting collapses have become more common.

Slippery Steve would have been a great bench impact player in the modern era.

He had one truly great year, didn’t he?

Morley then, he was a beast. I just think Myles did the dirty work that allowed his teammates to shine

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

This competition is beneath Choc. He is in one all by himself. Greatest sportspeople of all time, Federer, Woods, Bolt, Thorpe (Ian and Jim), and Choc

As I said it was the toughest decision I’ve had to make in the whole series.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

I just can’t pick Morgan on the strength of four tests. Myles’ record is second to none and he has always been underrated, and then you have Morley with 47 tests for the Uk waiting in the wings

Mini rarely played wing, so I couldn’t do that, even though I really wanted him in the side.

Munster is good but does not have the body of work to challenge Marshall yet.

Mortimer is very very unlucky, but he’s up against a guy that captained the Wallabies and Kangaroos on winning tours of England and won a good medal.

Bellamy says Hi

No love for Anthony Minichiello? I’m surprised there was no one looking to get him in the starting line up.

One of my personal favourites. And Brett Mullins for that matter.

I should say that it was this letter that caused me to add some ‘Best if the Rest’ sides to this competition, so much depth.

Unfortunately for the N Team the L’s and M’s are hard acts to follow.

Turvey was awesome. Both the 1979 version and the mid 80’s version.

Muir is seriously underrated these days. He was the premier half in the game in the 60’s.

Dammit you are right. Mason out Morley in. Of course over the course of a season Morley would spend plenty of time in front of the judiciary so Mason would get plenty of games.

Sneak preview, my next team is just you Choc. You’re enough all on your own.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

I would say Munster could be the one to put pressure on Benji. I think he could be a Hall of Fame player by the end.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

Sorry Rellum, this was a really tough side to pick- even the honourable mentions was hard.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

Thanks Chris, what a privilege it would have been to have that meeting.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

Morley is desperately unlucky but so are many in this team.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

Who do you suggest? Meninga?
Gee I’d hate to pick the coach of the B’s!

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

Jim Patterson, what a player. A NQ legend.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

Moir was an out and out finisher, running off Mal or Miles he would be gone before the opposition even saw him.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

Don’t discount the C Team and remember we have only just hit the half way point!

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

As mentioned this side had buckets of depth.
But if any back rower deserved to come in it would be Hugh a McGahan and if any prop comes in its Adrian Morley
And Des Morris was terribly unlucky to not play at least 10 tests for Australia.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

Gene Miles was that good that he wasn’t in the second row I’d move Mal or Dally M to the wing. That’s how good he was.

Rugby league history: The all-time great alphabet teams – Letter M

It broke my heart to do it. Steve Mortimer was my idol growing up. This was like overlooking one of my kids.
