Mannson 6, King 7 and Wolford 13.

Who gets the nod for the wing berths?

Sterling and Plange were great for us (as well as other teams) but in my view one of them will have to miss out to Peter Muscroft. He looked like he was going to score every time he got the ball.

My era has to be Plangey, never seen any player before or after come out of the line so quick and put the shots on he did, hard as nails!

Plangey was good but Karl Pratt put him in his place, I rated Mick Bell highly until injury curtailed his career.

Ian Nicholson when we played at Batley. Warren Wilson and Mick Bell at Elland Road. Steve Hullock? Richard Baker? Scott Limb?

Not sure about the swap with Price but he certainly played ay Wembley for HKR.

There are 2 places up for grabs here so what about Eric Fitzsimmons? Might not have been the speediest winger we've ever had but probably the greatest goal kicker.

Has to be Plangey for me, like Evo says i've never seen so many other wingers get carried off the pitch as a result of him rushing out of defence & smashing them... he knew his way to the try line too!!

not sure about the other wing spot... Scott Limb has been mentioned, he definitely knew his way to the try line!!

Raw? Bartliff? Bell? Sterling? hard to choose really!!

Im not 100% sure on the name but i think it was Waite or Waites something like that, winger in Elland Road days, he could shift a bit...

Am i the only one who rated Barnett?ok he made errors-so did Bryn Powell who was similar- but give him a decent pass like against Toulouse at home 2 yr ago and he was away from 50 yards without a hand on him.

He was bad and lazy Steve , out of position most of the time , never rated him

rick, i understand where your coming from but he does have ability, still scoring for Keighley now and got 3 tries for sheffield against wigan in a cup tie not so long ago.I think the problem with wingers is they dont get any quality passes on that pitch.

The trouble with Barnett is he's dog sh*t Steve. You could lay him in all day and it would be a knockonathon. Up there with the worst I've seen in a Huns shirt and there's plenty to pick from
