Wigans team of the early/mid nineties.

 

Literally from birth to to advent of Super League, all I knew of Rugby League was Wigan winning pretty much everything!

As Ray Warren said, at the time, "... no Andy Platt, no Kelvin Skerrett, no Dean Bell...". That was the crazy thing about it, we were missing so much size and/or experience on that night. Neil Cowie was incredible. I might be wrong but I think that he played the 80.

As many may say probably the Wigan side late 80's, early 90's.

A bit too young to really appreciate Wigan’s dominance so in my RL watching career I’d say Bulls 2003 takes it - allowing for some bias! - and although my teenage self would hate me for saying it, the Saints of that era as well. Think the game – over here – has slowed down a bit in the past 10 years and although Wire/Wigan et al are good, I think those Saints/Bulls teams are just that bit superior (in my mind at the very least).

 

Also got a lot of appreciation of the past 5+ years of the Rhinos, not as consistently ruthless throughout the season as some of the other contenders, but pretty much always turn it on when it matters and that’s one of the most impressive achievements I think I’ll ever see in the sport. I’ll be sneakily quite sad to see the bigger players in that squad slip into retirement.

Much as i enjoyed the Wakey team of the early  Sixties, i would have  to say Wigan early Nineties was the best club side i have seen play.

Wigan, early 90s.

 

Best club side anywhere in the World in my lifetime.

 

Beating the Aussies on their own patch with a weakened team seals it for me.


That's me.  I'm done.

I've only been following the sport for a few years so I'd have to go for Maguire's Wigan of 2010.
