This really pains me to say it, but the Salford side of the mid-70's was filled with GB Internationals and could have more Championships if only they weren't supposed to upwards of 50 games a season.

The Wigan side of the 1980's were another immense side.

From a Swinton POV, the 1980's yo-yo side were enough to worry the 2nd div, and give the 1st Div enough scares.

 Again as a Salford Fan , another vote for Widnes  

Definately Doug Laughton's late 80's Widnes Side,  just about the perfect mix of speed, skill & a front row that took no prisoners.

shame the money ran out

The Wigan sides in the early 90s were excellent but for mine, the Saints team in 2006 were something special.

Wakefield Trinity team of the 60s end of

 

Can't argue with that, they were awesome in every department.  Just a pity they couldn't clinch the "All four cups" feat at Odsal in 1962.

I always thought that had they played Wigan at Wembley in 1989 they'd have won, but they had a player sent off in the semi at Central Park v Saints and didn't get there.  The offending tackle was inoccuous, would have incurred a penalty and nothing more today.  Make you wonder what some refs were thinking about.

I'm torn on this one, grew up or should that be spewed up on a wonderful era of Wigan, beating manly and Brisbane in the WCC and dominating our game for many years.... They were very special.... But for some reason and this really really hurts me, the saints of the early 2000 was just simply wonderful, great tries on many many occasions... Bulls and rhinos have been good, great players and some wonderful years.... But it's just saints for me, just because of the strike power and great tries scored

St Helens, when Tommy Martyn and Sean Long were at the peak of their powers as a duo. That was usually very watchable indeed.
