Wanted to get a bit of discussion going, so if you had to pick the top 5 best players for your club who would it be???

For arguments sake;

Warrington
1. Bevan
2. Boyd
3. Gregory
4. Eccles
5. Briers

There's probably loads I've missed there too!!

I never saw him play, obviously, but I believe Harold Wagstaff was the WG Grace of rugby league.

 

There have probably been better players since, but he invented much of the modern game.


That's me.  I'm done.
