    This thread is boring. Was a good laugh to start off with now it's just embarrassing.

    The Hurley that was outmarked by Gary Rohan looked a lot more like Marty Gleeson - and was wearing Gleesons number.
    Classic case of someone learning all about the game from what they read on Bigfooty - someone posted the same error after that game.

    BTW Rance was brilliant in the GF. No shame in Hurley being 2nd best to him.

    SOS might think he's the best defender in the comp, but Jade thinks Rance is. I just can't work out which opinion holds more water.

    SOS is one of the greatest defenders of all time, but Jade has made a lot of posts about Essendon. Gahhhhhh

    Hard to believe this thread exists, I wouldnt mind Hurley in our team he is a good player one of the best defenders in the comp but to compare him with Rance well it is just silly.

    I didn't read it, I saw it happen and saw the replay several times and swore it was Hurley.

    There you go, I was wrong. And you're right, no shame in being a distant (current) second to the GOAT defender.

    Rance is better than Hurley.

    Having said that, I would love to see how Hurley would play with a good midfield actually stopping the other team waltzing through the middle like a parade.

    Rance put up with the same over the previous 3 seasons (worst pressure and tackling side in the comp) and has been AA and been seen as the best defender over that period also

    Second best defender will always be compared the first. Unfortunately, Rance's final series put Hurley a fair bit behind.
    I still maintain that Hurley is a much better kick and is better at starting an offensive chain.
