It is week one of the Seagulls Team of the Decade and we are starting with one of the most hotly contested positions in Fullback.
This list has three candidates that all bring something different across their time with the Seagulls and is sure to cause plenty of debate amongst Seagulls fans.
Recently crowned best winger of the 25-year Queensland/Intrust Super Cup era, Ogden was a mainstay at the back for the Seagulls and played 102 games in the red and green, finishing his career in 2018 with the Seagulls Player of the Year gong. Ogden also stands as the all-time leading tryscorer for the Queensland/Intrust Super Cup.
Speaking of his time with Wynnum, Ogden said “the club is such a special place with the fans and support we receive. You don’t get that with any other club and is why Wynnum is so respected. I have made lifelong mates at Wynnum and loved my time here.”
This man only spent the one season with the Seagulls, but what a year it was! Edene Gebbie lit up the Intrust Super Cup in 2019 and played a starring role in the club’s run to the 2019 Grand Final.
Gebbie led the league in tackle breaks (170), run metres (4546m), Kick Return Metres (1194m), Linebreaks (23) and was top five in tries scored with 19.
The Kougari faithful got their money’s worth when Gebbie came to town and he was the matchwinner on more than one occassion.
With a career that has seen him go on to play with the Brisbane Broncos and then find a home at hooker for the North Queensland Cowboys, amassing 137 NRL matches so far, Granville boasts the most impressive career resume of the trio.
For the Seagulls Team of the Decade we must look at what a player did wearing the red and green and Granville certainly shone in his time with the club.
Granville was a part of the successful 2011/2012 back to back premiership side, but played one game at Fullback and one at Hooker. Will fans pick him as fullback on hooker, only time will tell.
One thing is for sure, the Seagulls have been blessed with talent at the back across the last decade. Make sure you get your vote in below.
Team of the Decade: Voting Criteria
A combination of votes combined across social media and website will be compiled. Selection should be based on a player’s contribution to the Seagulls during the time period (2010 – 2019) only and doesn’t take into account any future success elsewhere – for example, if they went on to play NRL.
Stay tuned each week as we debate and subsequently announce each position and winner chosen by the fans.
Up the Gulls!
