    That’s what happens when you don’t let the punters have a say……you did a good job with the choices for both the men and women’s top ten, as you stated on a previous podcast, agreement can also depend on what era has the strongest pull, but in the women’s category there was an obvious omission,a stronger pick than say Leblanc, really on par with Schmidt …..Melissa Tancredi.

    The most iconic Women’s match had to be that battle in UK to play for either the Gold or Bronze Olympic medal against Hope and the lesser big Egos, in London – and Tancredi put in a shift in that match that even with Christine’s brace she was in the running for gal of the match. She stood out for many of her 107 caps, bulging the onion bag 22 times, primarily from the wing.

    As I said, if you only you had faith in the rabble….. enjoying the added output – thanks..
