The wingers are sorted - Muscroft was a shoe in whilst Plange just about gets the nod over Sulipa.

Team (post 73) so far...

2. Muscroft
5. Plange
6. Mannson
7. King
13. Wolford

Now for the no.1 shirt. There's no doubting Gary Kemble went on to be a rugby league great but do his performances in our colours warrant a place in this team?



Hunslet: STILL the city's only club to win all competitions in one season.

Richard Baker for me, one of the all time greats in our recent history with Butch Fatnowna a close second only because he played for one season.

Never forget when Bradford beat us 82-0 at Headingley if it hadn't have been for Baker we would have lost by 120 points that day!

Hawkeye's spell check lol.

I'd go for buch fatnowna talent wise, class act! Just a shame we didn't have him for longer, echo what other people are saying, hard to choose really with rich baker, Steve lay & Andy Kay in the mix...

No question got to be Kemble but just does not seem right though having a greatest team without Baker in.

Even if Kemble was the best ability wise, i still think Baker with his consistent performances over MANY years for the club has to be in front of a one season wonder?

And i agree, dont think we can have a greatest team without him, deffo place on the bench if we go with Kemble.

Still Andy Kay for me. Consistent over many years at Elland Road and part of our Championship winning team and Old Trafford Premiership team. Solid under high ball and had some pace. Any more support for Andy?

I liked Andy Kay but Kemble was simply brilliant for us even if it was only for one season.
