Top 10 Rugby League Players of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Brett Kenny

I have been watching RL since the 1970's and have to say Brett Kenny is the most naturally gifted and intelligent player I have ever seen. Never seen a player with so much time. Had everything. First saw him when Kangaroos toured UK IN 1982. He also played for Wigan for a short while, and although I'm a Cas fan it was brilliant to watch him live.

Brett Kenny is the best most gifted player to grace the field. Awesome evasiveness, speed, defense, amazing passing. A truley graceful player who made everyone smile at his pure gift for rugby league. THE GREATEST PLAYER OF ALL TIME FULL STOP.

Masterful center. Simply brilliant with dazzling speed and perfect passing.

Like watching God play rugby league.

The best of the best

Greatest athlete ever in NRL

You're the best ever. You are my insperation

46 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

47 Josh Dugan
48 David Peachey

I am related to David Peachey! By far the best fullback to ever play .. better then bowen and slater put together! and he played for the sharks YEWW!

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

Put Cronk in the top 20 now!

51 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

Sad to see a great play maker ranked 50.. This guy can step your top 5 ranked players with his eyes closed

52 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.

One of the best hooker/halves Papua New Guinea has ever had... Still the King of Rugby in PNG..

If wingers are to be judged on tries scored then its no contest. Brian is the best.
