Reason enough, in that one post, why a time machine absolutely must be invented. That'd be one hell of a team to watch if you assembled them in their prime. B)

Interesting that none of the Wigan selections so far have included Brett Kenny.

I remember 2GB had a phone-in on all-time best selections. One guy rang in with his selection for the Hunter Mariners. :lol:

I can't contribute to this thread as I don't have a favourite team at the moment.

Even the greatest World cup footballing nation on Earth get knocked out as soon as I draw them in the bloody sweep. :(

It ain't that bad, a win on Thursday and you will be the happiest bunny going!

Would have loved to have seen Paul Harkin's kicking game with the 40-20 rule. Think we would have spent a hell of a lot of time in the oppositions 20 to say the least!

The only problem I had was trying to find someone with a name begining with G to play 3 then we would really have been in business.

It is interesting that most people have not selected current players in their teams. Is the reason simply that we haven't seen their full career pan out yet, or that players used to be better, or is it though nostalgic glasses where everything seemed better?

Personally speaking I am very much guilty of the nostalgic rose tinted's being worn!

Why reluctantly with Monas sam?

I ask, because I think I feel exactly the same! The bloke has been dire at times for us, really one of the worst players I have seen, and his surly manner hardly won me over. Even when King was ###### you could see that he was an honest bloke, trying his heart out, and it just wasn't working for him. With Monas, I didn't get that feeling. He is now one of the best 9's running round in the comp and has signed a new contract and seems a new person. He will undoubtedly go down as a great signing for us, but I can't help but have that little bit of resentment towards him. Probably unfairly, but that's tough as it's how I feel.

it's to do with the lack of quality we've had in that position over the years.

i've been watching warrington since the mid 90's and in that time we've never had an above average hooker, clarke is a good, honest pro but just lacks that certain something to take him to the next level, i'm pleased he's moved more into the pack as i think he's more suited there. before him, i can't remember who played there with any distinction.

monaghan, is clearly a cut above most hookers in sl, he knows when to pass and when to run and the fact he does both well confuses defences. plus he kicks intelligently. it's galling that for the first part of his career he looked like he really didn't give a toss when he's clearly talented. hopefully he'll give us a few decent seasons so i can remove the reluctantly!

I liked Duane Mann, who played for us in the early 90's IIRC. Not the fastest, but had a hell of a lot of skill (a little like Kelly Shelford)

I watched Widnes from around 1974 to early 80's, stopped watching around 80 or 81, then didn't go again until 1995. So i'm going from a vague memory, and only including players i actually saw.

1) Mick Burke

2) Stuart Wright

3) Mal Aspey

4) Mick George

5) John Basnett

6) Eric Hughes

7) Reg Bowden

8) Jim Mills

9) Keith Elwell

10) Glynn Shaw

11) Alan Dearden

12) Mick Adams

13) Doug Laughton

I may do one featuring only Players from 1995 onwards later................

Most of the players in my current team haven't played long enough with the club to prove how good they are. Also this team has not really won anything , whereas the majority of the players listed won many competitions thus proving that they were the best at that time.

Several of our current team could possibly make it. Ben Galea has a chance, so do Mick Vella and Joel Clinton. Alongside Jake Webster as we have been weak in the centres with the exception of Prohmy who was a total legend.

Kylie Leuleuai would have to be in my Leeds side of the past 10 years and I always loved watching Brad Godden play.
