"Rance is the best full back in history" Thats the latest pronouncement of some newspaper scribbler.
Well where do you start? There is no such thing as a "Full Back " any more. I think we are talking KPDs. Right?
I dont often watch Rance play, so qualitatively I cant comment on his game but I recognise he is a very good player.
If we look at stats this year, Hurley is ahead of Rance on most key stats (averages) for example.
R50: H6.9 R4.1
I50: H1.1 R0.9
Disposals H23.1 R15.9 ( I dont know who takes the kickouts for Richmond)
CP: H5.3 R6.7
So we will be able to compare them this Saturday night. This season Hurls is probably at least as good, if not better based on stats, I could not have said that after round 2 or even 3
