You can't sabotage my list. I was merely pointing out that from an Aussies perspective, who have more info on Aussies, Aussies always dominate.

I myself have an English perspective, and in my opinion these are the best in the world.

Plus if you're going to start including hookers and loose forwards, these are next on my list:

James Roby
Keiron Cunningham
Kevin Sinfield
Jon Clarke
Sean O'Loughlin
Scott Murrell
Cameron Smith


At least you've got one in there, eh? biggrin.gif


Now this is a wind up!?

I don't really consider hookers as a forward in the traditional sense. I wouldn't even describe them as hookers anymore. They're more an acting half back.

I think the tackling stint they usually have to put in puts them in the forwards.

I have absolutely no problem with Crabtree being in the England squad for his sheer size but I'd agree that there is now way he's in the top 10-20 RL Forwards in the world.

Nice to see the boot on the other foot for some Aussies with ridiculously biased opinions.

It was of course a wind up. Restoring the balance of ridiculous comments.

Mark Flanagan, left this country with less than 10 first grade appearances to his name, goes to the NRL and becomes a regular.

The English are Supermen.

I think the NRL is a superb competition but I'm truely fed up of the of the guys on the TRL forums who constantly whing on here about the SL, drool over the NRL & bang on about the NRL players ('Supermen'). So I like this thread as I'd agree we have lots of superb Forwards in the Englad squad & the SL.
