Prefer Gill to Robinson but that's just my subjective opinion 👍

Remember that tackle by Ford.

Superb!

Was sad he left Wigan but he was part of the deal that took Ellery to Central Park...the rest is history.

Has Keinhorst given you something for free? Such a strange name nestled among some big names.

1. Sam Tomkins - never seen anyone as good live as he was 2010-2013 looked forward to every match

2. Jason Robinson - no player ever got me out of my seat as much every time he got the ball

3. Steve Renouf - incredible talent

4. Greg Inglis - Nothing like him in his prime

5. Martin Offiah - finished every half chance he got, incredible pace.

6. Trent Barrett - dragged an awful Wigan team to plenty of play off semi finals when they would have been nowhere near otherwise. Great player to watch

7. Jonathan Thurston - has there ever been a better clutch moment player than Thurston? 

8. Feka Paleaaesina - no prop ever got me as excited when he would get the ball in 2007

9. Cameron Smith - rugby genius 

10. Andy Farrell - had everything 

11. Gareth Hock - excitement every time he got the ball

12. Gordon Tallis - monster

13. Sean O’loughlin - never seen a player like him. Don’t think there has been a genuine ball playing forward quite like him.

Anyone in the Fev pack mid 90s. They all had a bit of c in them. Honorable mentions for Okesene, Fisher and lastly Burton just because he was funny

Just thinking.. any naughty forward. Enjoyed Luke Odonnell a lot in his prime as well. James Graham will always be a fave

This statement may bring out a few objections from some of the (let's say) mature contributors on here.

Especially with Farrell sitting there at 10

Played in the same team and a good friend of mine. Glad to see him have played both at Wembley and Old Trafford. Not a superstar but a grafter.

The Rubberman... He was like a pantomime villain at times but when he played well he was brilliant.

No.

I can't name the best 1-13, but I can name my favourites

Paul Charlton, taught me how to catch a high ball, Les Holliday taught me how to tackle, David Watkins, how to kick for goal, Danny Wilson, how to drop kick a goal, and stuff a field kick 20cm behind the fullback, while making him look slow, David Snell for teaching me how to pass a ball, just 2cm before getting hit, the ultimate off-load, Dave Potts for teaching me the strengths of fitness, Con O'Keeffe for telling me how to pass, Ged Byrne, for being there, Mick McLoud, for being there at Ealing, Eric Grothe, for being EG, in fact the whole of the 1982 touring team, for showing how far behind we were https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1982_Kangaroo_tour_of_Great_Britain_and_France

Ellery Hanley, Martin Offiah, Sean Edwards, Adrian Morley, Eddie Cunningham, Peter Stirling, Wally Lewis, just for playing our beautiful game

Paul Charlton was the best attacking Full Back I have ever seen, even better than Australians, when I played full back, I scored more tries than on the wing, because I attacked, and I could see the gaps. I scored 3 tries v Wigan St. Pats in a 2nd half, just because I hung back in the 1st, as Charlton did, and watched the gaps appear, then I attacked.
