A slightly different take on the Overseas catergory but just wondering how many great NZers have graced SL or had an enormous impact on our game in modern times. That any fan would have had play for their club.

From my club:

Vainikolo
Hape
Robbie Paul
Henry Paul

Lilly, Jacob and Isaac, what my life is about. Although our route through life is not how it should be, I am a blessed man.

From recent teams what about Jeff Lima and Thomas Leuluai?

My top 5 kiwis I've seen In the super league era would be:
1. Henry Paul
2. Robbie Paul
3. Lesley vainkolo
4. Inga tuigamala
5. David solomona

My top 5 kiwis pre-super league would be:
1. Tawera nikau
2. Dean bell
3. Kurt sorensen
4. Kevin iro
5. Tea ropati

And my top kiwi outside of the top flight would have to be clayton friend.

I think he could have in his first spell at Carlisle in 1982. I remember him playing for Whitehaven and living near me as a kid in the early 90's, great player who should have played in the top flight.
