    Priddis is about the only person I saw to make quality tackles stick on both Dusty and Fyfe on the reg. Not fast or fancy but by the gods that man could put a vice like tackle on anyone and come out the winner.

    More tackles per game than e.g. West Coast's b&f winner.

    If the thread's about most effective/hard and not most prolific - Nic Naitanui, by a long way. If he catches you, you are in a world of hurt.

    Isn't Nahas' tackle quite a thing to behold?

    Townsend has knocked himself out laying tackles before. I rate his attack though.

    Yeh - not a very transparent attempt at another 'Cyril is great' thread.

    Bit like the Richmond 'Who is the best/worst' threads being started this week.

    Media probably say it's Joel Selwood as his the greatest tough man to play the game.

    Steele is very good and always has been. I actually think Jake Barrett was better as a tackler with us. Steele has other attributes though.

    Cyril and Tippa both have excellent techniques when you consider how often they attack a player from behind yet almost never get called for in the back.
