    The ‘Team of the Era’ was selected by an expert seven-man panel which consisted of Geoff Armstrong, Peter Black, Ian Heads, Gary Lester, Roy Masters, Arthur Summons and Larry Writer.

    ‘Never Before, Never Again Team Of The Era:

    Starting Team
    Fullback:
    Graeme Langlands
    Wing: Eddie Lumsden
    Centre: Reg Gasnier

    Centre: Billy Smith
    Wing: Johnny King
    Five-Eighth: Brian Clay

    I picked the ones in red - I think picking Billy in the centres was fair ... but not right. I picked him at half. So 3 of mine didn't make it. Gourley R, Maddison K, and Huddart. So 15/18.

    My Team:

    Fullback Graeme Langlands
    Wing Johnny King
    Centre Reg Gasnier
    Centre Ken Maddison
    Wing Eddie Lumsden
    Five Eighth Brian Clay
    Halfback Billy Smith
    Prop Harry Bath
    Hooker Ken Kearney
    Prop Kevin Ryan
    Second Row Elton Rasmussen
    Second Row Norm Provan
    Lock Johnny Raper
    Interchange Robin Gourley
    Interchange Dick Huddart
    Interchange Monty Porter
    Interchange Billy Wilson
    18th: George Evans

    Your pick was pretty good SJ but it would be hard to pick a bad team from those years and picking the side would be easy but picking who to leave out a real problem. Billy was pretty solid as a centre and did play there a lot

    True - but I preferred him as a half - and thought Maddison added some starch.
