I don't think Buck was here long enough to qualify

I hear the point he was only with us a short time but for me it is about impact rather than longevity. Pat Lam is in the Hall of Fame and was with us for 3 seasons but what a difference he made. What a leader.

Buck was with us for two. He was a pivotal player who brought an All Black professional mentality to a Saints team trying to believe we deserved to be at the top table after years in the wilderness. We got to our first ever Pilkington Cup Final with him. We was one of the key figures for why we are a major team today unlike say Richmond or Coventry.

Would Dawson have come to Saints without the impact Shelford had? Would the likes of Rodber stayed?

I guess we all have our favourites. Who would be yours who isn't already in the Hall of Fame?
