Why, oh why, does Keith Senior always make it into these ?

He's not even the best centre at his own club.

Paul Wellens, Keith Senior, Michael Dobson?

Surprised Fitzgibbon didn't make it, but cannot argue too much with O'Loughlin as he's had a good year (and I'm usually one of his knockers).

Can't argue with much of the team, has Ryan Hall been that good again this year? Every time I've seen him he has looked average at best.

If it wasnt for injury i'd say amos roberts would have almost certainly been in ahead of him, amazing start to the season!

rikki sheriffe anyone? :lol::lol::lol:

I have told you for years that Wellens was a god and still you don't believe me. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

No pace.

Turning circle of a bus.

No positional sense.

Never tackled by the first man.

Always in support.

Never a backward step taken.

And do you listen ? eh ? do yer ? :closedeyes:

Do yer ###### and look who's selected as Dream Team Fullback.

Tell yer all these young "johnny come latelys" will never measure up to him !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol::lol:

Adrian Morley for Man of Steel !!!! :ph34r:

Not one Bulls player? It's a conspiracy. If only Danny Sculthorpe had been fit.

Would've thought Chris Riley would be picked on the wing instead of Ryan Hall but I think they're all pretty good choices.

Hall and Dobson are bizarre choices and you get the feeling they were thrown in desperately to cover up the dearth of talent in Yorkshire. However, Danny McGuire would have been a fair pick.

I see Roby's still the darling of whoever it is who makes these decisions. MOS?

A wholly English pack, English players always seem to take the majority of the pack when the Dream Team rolls around. Good stuff. Now for the backs.

I think half the team picks itself, whereas the other half is made from positions where no-one has excelled. Were Wellens/Dobson/Roby really the best full-back/scrum half/hooker this year? Probably, but no-one has stood out either.

I hadn't actually noticed that county divide. I don't think it indicates the dearth of talent, but just the Yorkshire teams haven't really excelled this season, a ropey Rhino side in fourth, and a chop and change Hull FC side never really being able to settle yet still find results. Huddersfield too have been a team of steady-eddies without having anyone worthy of Dream Team selection. The rest, including my side, pretty poor, Menzies maybe, but not enough. The only sure fire omissions in my eyes would be Ben Jones-Bishop and Tom Briscoe, but the former might've missed too much game time. Edited by hindle xiii

Hall lost credibility with me in last years 4Nations, out of his Leeds comfort zone he was exposed as a deplorable defender and being honest not much better in attack, that is excepting games V France. Dobson has not been at all good and I cannot imagine who has given him their support.

But in Roby's case you are way out of order. He has been quite outstanding, certainly from my neutral point of view he has.

Back after a mediocre last season to the form we got used to from him in the season prior to that and I for one would have no argument with him being named MoS this season.

Saw it on BBC website .

They pointed out Morley has now been in the Dream Team in 3 different decades.

It's also the first time brothers have both made it at once.

Been looking at the player stats on the SL website and Roby has outstanding stats, certainly the best hooker based purely on that basis.
