Top Ten Rugby League Teams of All Time
Some awesome teams in this line up. However, I'm voting for the team that not only totally dominated its own league (with very entertaining football), but also dominated the Aussie teams when they played them (WCC and Sydney 7's). When I was growing up this Wigan team was basically the GB team too - Hanley, Offiah, Gregory, Lydon, Edwards, this list goes on. And to all the Aussies out there, yes your teams are historically the best (can't argue with that) but this Wigan team would have dominated the Sydney comp in it's day. No one can/could dispute that.
This was the greatest sports team ever. Wigan had Rugby League all time greats in nearly every position and beat all challengers in the league and Challenge Cup. They also dominated the World Club Challenge, beating Manly, Penrith and Brisbane during this golden period.
They Dominated the late 80s and early 90s with 8 straight Challenge cup wins (19 total)
5 Championships, 3 world club winners and 3 Superleague Titles and lots more silverware. Wigan really did put the sport on the map.
Great side, went to the other side of the world and beat the second team in this list (Brisbane Broncos - 1994) in their own back yard.
11 consecutive premierships - a recognised world record.
More Immortals than any other club
Rules had to be changed in order to beat them.
Teams had to be introduced (Cronulla and Penrith) in order to beat them.
Didn't lose at home for well over two-years.
Never before, never again. No one gets close to the Mighty Dragons.
The statistics say it all. 11straight premierships and an absolute plethora of immortals, no other team anywhere ever has or will come close. D4L
Has to be number one. Think a lot of people on here voting would not of seen them play hence why they are not 1.
Never saw them play (wasn't born) but will never be repeated in any sport.
Not up for debate. The best ever.
I am now 76 years old & have seen most of the Australians mentioned in the list of the 10 greatest players. I would add one to the list and that would be the greatest second row forward I have ever seen, & that would be Gordon Tallis. Of the great britain players I would put Ellery Hanley up there. All wonderful players but I only ever saw one genius. That was Lewis Jones.
Won when it mattered... Although having seen 8 Challenge Cup Final defeats in my time as a fan, probably leaves them behind Wigan's 80's/90's team.
Has there been a spell of dominance in England greater in the British game? Was arguably the best team in the world for 5 years running.
Leeds rhinos are the best rugby team in the world! No teams are better than leeds rhinos!
This team is the best team in the PRO era, because they reach 4 grand finals in a row to 2006-2009, I think that record won't get Broken in the PRO era and they got the best fullback ever Billy "The Kid" Slater and yeah
They have won the premiership 2 times and the world club challenge 2 times
Best Club side in rugby league history. Most well known, most popular, richest, most watched/attended Rugby club side in the world. Have had arguably the greatest players of all time play for them in Lockyer, Lewis and Langer. Add the best prop forwards of all time Lazerus, Webcke and Petero Civoniceva and three of the greatest centres of all time Gene Miles, Hodges and Folau. They also have the highest revenue of any Rugby club in the world across both codes. Also the Broncos of the 1990's were close to unbeatable. Best team of all time.
Had the best player, Darren Lockyer on the team. They also won premierships including the 97 Superbowl. They are better than st George Dragons because the dragons had soft rules, the modern rules make it more harder to play as a result of its strictness.
The all time best Broncos team would not have scored a point against the St George Teams of the early 60's.
Best team/s of modern era last team to go back to back in 92/93 and 97/98. A Perrenial contender
Complete football team
1995 team was nearly unbeatable and it is nearly a crime they slipped up against Canterbury in the Grand Final.
Even now Manly Warringah Sea-Eagles are the most consistent and best.
No Wooden spoons til this day..!
My favourite team
Amazing side that changed the game and unlike some of the sides here played in a national comp.
Champion team in that era.
Can't believe the storm are in this. They had there premierships stripped
Dream team with both attack and defense being brutal, fast and powerful.
Show me any team greater than the individuals with cameos below...
That are the best
Wigan may have been dominant in the 80's but that was only when they were one of few "professional teams" of that era... bring on super league where there's a level playing field for everyone and look who dominates... The Saints!
They were not called the entertainers for nothing. The first team in the professional era to do the treble. Two world club championships, and a special team. They should be much higher
One of the best of all time.
Shame the english game has become so poor, and unfortunately fast becoming more boring than Union
St. Helens were the best when all teams were pro. (Aka Wigan dominated as a pro team in a sea of amateurs).
Back when they and their supporters didn't have a horrible reputation.
Best team ever, can't believe on 12th they should be in the top 5, leeds rhino sucks, lost against storms earlier 2018
They were just super.
The greatest era of rugby league, the toughest era and an era they dominated
One of the teams ever! SSTID They have won 20 premierships says it all
Best team ever
There the best
Best team ever
The best Super League team of all time.
The greatest of all time
There the best
They beat the record for the most consecutive wins by winning 17 matches in a row.
The last team to win 3 in row and also one of the few teams to ever do it. They also played in 4 girlfriend's in a row.
The names in that all star backline were some of the best ever to grace a footy field bar NONE!
Go eels! They may not have the most wins, but they are still a great team, my team
Best of all time.
Parra produce good players like sivo and Gutherson of who we made great. Also the fairest by far Melbourne Storm cheat
They are awesome
Best team ever
Had the first superstar of the game Billy Batten and others like Harrison
Should be in the top 10
Only team never to be relegated from top flight uk rugby league! WARRINGTON.. at position 26?
We all hate wigan
The worst team
The best team
