“Great pairing Burkey and Flugge” – Michael Clanchy
“Another great group nominees in a toss of the coin decision I take Joel Riethmuller from Kieran Lander. In my totally biased view Grant Flugge while he doesn’t have the profile of the others his credentials are right up there for nominations 179 Intrust Super Cup matches 5 grand finals for 4 wins but you can’t nominate everyone or the list would be mile long” – Jon Sloan
