Top 10 Greatest Australian Athletes Of All Time
Let The Countdown Begin
10. Mark Ella
Mark Ella was asked by rookie half-back Nick Farr-Jones before the 1984 Grand Slam tour, “Where do you want me to pass the ball?”. The mercurial one replied, “Just throw it, I’ll catch it”. That typified Ella, the most instinctive and intuitive footballer of any code I have ever seen. So instinctive he sometimes couldn’t even remember what he did after the game, it was so natural. He played only 25 Tests, and retired at 25, a huge loss to the 15-man code when he was at his peak. There’s never been anyone since who could remotely match him.
