I'm too young to remember the players I nominated, but their legend still lives on.

My Dad and Granddad saw them play and talked about them as being real tough bastards, genuine hard men, at a time when dirty play was far more common due in part to the lack of blanket recording games we get today.

My Granddad insisted that "Big Jim" Mills should have got a sine die ban for what he did to John Greengrass.

Personally the most vicious thing I have ever seen was Anthony Swann's (Auckland Warriors) multiple attack on the head of St Helens centre Andy Haigh in June 97.

Unbelievabley it escaped unpunished under the weak judicial system in place for the World Club Championship, despite Haigh being sent to hospital with a fractured cheekbone.

Of course there was nothing hard about what Swann did, I doubt he would have lasted 2 minutes if he tried that with a monster like "Big Jim".
