2020 Dream Team Announced

Recommended Posts

It wouldn't be the dream team if we didn't complain about it! I'd swap Hurrell for Wardle and Powell for McShane. I may have made a couple more changes, but can understand the inclusion of the rest.

Glad to see Tanginoa there. Whatever Trinity paid for him, he's been a bargain.

McShane been the best hooker in the British game for the last 4 or 5 years. Yes i am biased too. The fact he also plays in the halves too makes him invaluable to us.

I've seen almost all the games Hurrell played this year and he wasn't even the best centre at Leeds never mind one of the top two in the league.

Can make a case for most of those, the only one who stands out as a strange selection is Hurrell.....: but there haven’t been many stand out centres across the whole season. A number have played better at times but suffered from injuries (Newman, Gildart, Wardle).
Naiqama has been more consistent

Let in as many tries maybe more than he has assisted in or scored.

Yes, but he does know all the words to "Marching On Together" 😊

Will today's team have 8 interchanges to go at?

But No I couldn't todays team getting the better of the team from 20 years ago, especially now that O'Connor has found an ability to put people to sleep.

If they played now the team released today should just edge it for me. Being 20 years older might just take its toll in the last 10 minutes on this team!!

Yes but a very one sided game.

 

The side you listed would be a genuine match for a current NRL team of the year for 2020. The SL 2020 dream team would be lucky to keep the score below 50. French and Walmsley are the only ones from today’s team that would even make me pause to consider picking them.

hardly a dream team- more like a nightmare scenario and a very very sad indictment  of the lack of talent in the  british game these days - hurrel would struggle to get a game with the ferns down under

Nail on head mate. World's apart.

Yet some people still protest on here if anyone suggests the level is regressing.

This year's team would beat the Brisbane Broncos I am sure, who are basically a bunch of kids.

However would anybody really put money on them beating NQ Cowboys (third bottom NRL) or the Bulldogs (2nd last?). I don't think there would be many willing to stake serious cash against either.

Haha give over, both of those teams were awful this year (the Dogs have been awful for years). 

You can’t judge or compare teams on paper anyway, pointless exercise. All depends on how they’re coached and the combinations and defensive understanding they have from gelling together

So I guess given the financial disparities between the 2 leagues, we can expect at least a few of these 'stars' from Super League to be snapped up by the NRL asap then?

We hear that French is staying... so which of this 'Dream Team' will be heading across to double their salary next season? (Not to mention test themselves against the best)

They must be getting a lot of offers if they are so good?
