MLL = ONLY 3 POLES = NO LSM :mrgreen:


True until now. The MLL will allow 4 poles in the 2009 season. http://www.lax.com/stories/2172

Does that make him the best though? he is up there but does his size make him the best? there are defenders who are arguably better using great positioning and checking skills.

It also depends what you define as "best" is that best all rounder? best fundamentals? best checker or best groundballer?

An U16s defender for Lancs U16s is 6' 5" 240lbs :shock:

Does that make him the best? :roll:

by the way I feel sorry for the Cheshire U16s Attackers, you'll meet him next week :lol:

I'm sure you don't really get a best "groundballer" lol, it's a fundamental skill EVERYONE should have.
