What utter horseshit. I would have Higgins and Davis as my top two safety players of all time, and I'd find it very hard to separate them. Up until the mid noughties, a lot of people still felt Davis was arguably the best safety player in the world, and with good reason. I think Higgins and Selby have been better tactical players, but if we're strictly talking safety, Davis is right up there with anyone, and ahead of Selby.
I think Johnny meant lightyears ahead of Hendry.
I’ve always thought Davis was underrated as a breakbuilder, and I only really watched him in his twilight years.
Yes, that's what I meant.
