87. Terry Lamb

For much of his career, Terry Lamb was renowned as the game's finest support player.

In a sign of his longevity in club football, Lamb once held the record for most first-grade games until passed by Darren Lockyer and later Cameron Smith.

Lamb played in four premiership-winning teams with Canterbury. In 1995, he captained the Bulldogs to the premiership after the side qualified for the ARL finals in sixth position.

His personal achievements are extensive: Dally M Player of the Year (while playing with wooden-spooners Wests in 1983) and also runner-up on three occasions; 1984 Rothmans Medal winner; Dally M Players' Player of the Year three times (1984, 1986 and 1995); a record seven-time recipient of the Dally M Five-Eighth of the Year award.

He scored 164 tries in club football and was the leading NSWRL try scorer in 1984 and 1987.

Putting family and club before representative football cost Lamb many state and national appearances. He ruled himself out of the 1982 Kangaroo Tour and was also unavailable in 1990.

All of Lamb's seven Tests came in 1986, although he also represented Australia in the 1988 World Cup final.
