That’s a very good SL side bullinenemyland!

This is the great thing about picking teams because everyone will have a different opinion and it’s great to hear others. Like you’ve chosen Spruce for example but I’d have put Withers and Robbie there first even though I thought Spruce was class.


Yeah I agree that Spruce v Withers is a very tough call. I'd go with Withers for versatility but only by a fraction. That SL side makes me ache with what phenomenal lads we've had gracing our team. Although I have to say I'm now thinking we need a separate thread for our worst ever 13. Nick Zisti and Marc Herbert anyone?

Whilst we are on about SL players.

5 out of the 10 were Bulls players. 6 if you include Morley. You could cry if you thought about it.

Interesting question this... SL is a lot easier in respect that I was a ST holder for each and every season between 1996 and 2014. The difficult part of that process was selecting just 13 as you soon realise that there are multiple players that could fill each and every position.

The pre-SL team is a bit more tricky. I started to attend games regularly when I was about 7yrs old so I only really got to see the last 5yrs of the Northern sides. I've tried to stick to players I actually saw play during those years (including players that had moved on previously but plays in the RAB). Therefore there is a distinct lack of some of the clubs big names.

Bulls Super League XIII
1. Stuart Spruce
2. Tevita Vaikona
3. Graeme Bradley
4. Shontayne Hape
5. Lesley Vainikolo
6. Henry Paul
7. Paul Deacon
8. Joe Vagana
9. James Lowes
10. Paul Anderson
11. Jamie Peacock
12. Mike Forshaw
13. Sam Burgess

Pre-Super League XIII
1. Dave Watson
2. Carl Hall
3. Daryll Shelford
4. Paul Newlove
5. Brimah Kebbie
6. Neil Summers
7. Deryck Fox
8. Karl Fairbank
9. Trevor Clark
10. Kelvin Skerrett
11. Roy Powell
12. Paul Medley
13. Ellery Hanley



If youre going back far enough to include Ellery, the surely Nobby has to be at 9 and Sir Kieth at 1.

I doubt anyone on here is old enough to have seen Trevor and Frank play but nobody could argue they weren't great players. Add Eric Batten, Ernest Ward, Willie Davies and Jack McLean too from the 40s and 50s.

Henderson Gill played all his best rugby at Wigan.

As for the Worlord he was so good I regularly left Odsal in tears after his performances.
