This is the first time that the judges have gone back to the beginning of the game.

I suspect that Brian Bevan won't get the confirmation this time, because it will go to pre-WWII greats Herbert Henry "Dally" Messenger and David Brown.

Maybe next round for the fabulous Brian Bevan.

Saw all of the 7 that played post WW2. Hall and Bevan in England and the others here in Aus. First saw Bevan in a Hull v Warrington match back in 48/49 and he ranks as as my favourite ever player.


I think they could go 1"ancient"- Messenger and 1"modern"- Meninga.
