    4. Dean Collis

    You always felt that if Adam Mogg could get a run and look good for Queensland, then surely Collis was going to get a shot for NSW and it would only take 1 game for him to cement himself in origin folklore as a superstar. Had he have got his shot you just know he would've set a record for most try assists in an origin game. He was kind of the anti Joel Moon in his way, he didn't really look like he'd be any good, but he just was and probably still is.

    The writing was on the wall for Dean's career when in 2011 he managed only 4 appearances for a Cronulla side that instead opted for forgettable names like Tautai, Isaac Gordon, Pomeroy and Gardiner in the backline.

    Key stats:
    1 city country game in 2007
    31 tries in 104 NRL appearances
    68 super league games
    Looked outstanding in an early 00's popped collar Tigers jersey

    Main Offenders:

    The usual NSW regulars. Was always easy to feel smart and superior by suggesting someone should be playing in the centres for the Blues that had no hope of getting picked, because you'd never have to eat your words.

    Sad reaccs only.

    It was a failure of the evolution of rugby league that Collis wasn't a gun. Administrators absolutely should've been tweaking the rules in favour of making Collis a world class centre, and I say this unironically.

    I actually think he'd probably go alright in the slightly-more-modern game though, now that centres are largely anon in most teams. Defend well, cost little and create overlaps for your 700k pa polynesian winger -- 2020 coaches say "yes please".
