43 Keiron Cunningham

the best player to ever walk on the turf of knowsley road. When ever anyone thinks of st helens RLFC they automaticaly think of KC. Even got a statue:) THE MIGHTY KC! - sophielittler

One of the best players of the game, and not many rugby players have their own statue, he should be a lot higher and people just need to watch him play to realise.

In his prime, one of the best players in the world. Should be a lot higher on the rankings in my opinion

People talk about Cameron Smith, but if you think he is good YouTube this guy. Absolutely brilliant.

One of the greatest toughest forwards ever

This guy deserves to be a lot higher on this list

This guy should be last because he suck even though he is captain for NSW because he sucks

46 Matt Bowen

One of the best fullbacks in the game, light on his feet, great supporting player and loyal to the cowboys. Go mango!

47 Israel Folau

The best of the best

Greatest athlete ever in NRL

You're the best ever. You are my insperation

48 Percy Montgomery

Didn't look like a rugby player ( which trait is often the case in all sports ) could turn on a sixpence and flummoxed defences with a devastating sidestep. Long and lanky a formidable player.

He hardly ever mist a kick he should be number 10 he is a better kicker than dan carter he's got than hel ever have

49 Josh Dugan
50 Cooper Cronk

Revolutionized the kicking game of a number 7 and is in the top 3 greatest halfbacks I have ever seen. Controls the game with an iron fist and always makes the match winning play even while under pressure.

Best at try assist, best halfback

Easily the best halfback of the modern era

Top 10

52 Shaun Johnson

Shaun Johnson should be in the top 5 or even number 1 he has a solid step a mean dummy and is so so so fast he is an inspiration to me and more.

He is a legend with wicked skills and a great step and dummy I agree that he should be in the top 10 if you don't agree I don't know who you are

Most agile and one of the fastest halfbacks to ever play the game he's like benji Marshall times 45000000

He needs to be top ten easy amazing step and wicked speed and pace I don't what they were thinking putting him down he is easy the best

Preston Campbell should be higher then 10 former penrith panther and now Gold Coast Titans he is number 2 on my list after Johnathan Thurston

What a player just one of the smallest and quickest players int he world he is like lightning when he moves the ball towards the attacking line and shows great sportsman ship to all other player so never underestimate Mr Preston campell

it is because of him I like rugby league

54 Paul Sculthorpe

This guy won back to back man of steel. He genuinely scared the Aussies with his skills. He should have played NRL and would have been an absolute superstar.
