mine would always be gary moorby at leeds, maybe not an international sensation or trail blazing rl celeb but a good honest grafting week in week out modest 2nd rower who always gave 100% - always thought he was a little under rated too.

Gary Broadbent, I know it's abit biased but he was the most solid full back I've seen in my life, never truly got the recognition he deserved.

Ian sherratt was always good to watch for oldham, Duncan platt had a certain appeal too.

For me in the SL era it has to be our current player welfare officer Paul Highton. Nothing flashy about Paul but always played the game like a fan with talent.

Gary Broadbent might not have caught a pig in an alley but was always maintained his standards at Salford.
