Top Ten Rugby League Teams of All Time

The Top Ten
Wigan 1987-1996

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.

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.

They cheated. Everyone in all the other teams had day jobs why they trained day after day. Nothing but pie eating scumbags

St George Dragons 1956-1966

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.

Leeds Rhinos 2007-12

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!

Melbourne Storm - 2000s - 2010s

They have won the premiership 2 times and the world club challenge 2 times

Just the best team no matter what always in my heart

4 Premierships before even 20 years old

Most consistent and best team

Brisbane Broncos 1990s

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

Queensland Maroons 2006 - 2013

Greatest team in the history of rugby league

Why the hell is an Enlish team number 1? Put them up against QLD and the Maroons would win 50-0 easy

Complete football team

Wigan are wankers

Manly Warringah Sea-Eagles 1980's

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.

Come on the eagles they deserve better we got the milloion dollar man

My favorite team and I think should be in top 5

Canberra Raiders 1987-1995

Champion team in that era.
Can't believe the storm are in this. They had there premierships stripped

Amazing side that changed the game and unlike some of the sides here played in a national comp.

Great Team at that era and the players are now the best Coach of this modern era

Dream team with both attack and defense being brutal, fast and powerful.

Australia Kangaroos 2013

Aussie are the best in the world by far

That are the best

Great team.
2016 squad is better though.

St Helen's 2004 - 2011

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

St. Helens were the best when all teams were pro. (Aka Wigan dominated as a pro team in a sea of amateurs).

Should be much higher up.. Mist successful team since super league began

The Contenders
Bulldogs 1980s

Back when they and their supporters didn't have a horrible reputation.

The best ever. Could beet any other team from any other era

They were just super.

Awesome team my favourite nrl team

South Sydney Rabbitohs 1920s

Best team they won their first year in the comp

One of the teams ever! SSTID They have won 20 premierships says it all

Won more premierships in history

Best team ever

Hunslet 1907-08

A team with the greatest player ever ( Albert goldthorpe) and the terrible six would topple even Australia

Huddersfield 1914-15
Bradford Bulls 2000-05

The best Super League team of all time.

The greatest of all time

There the best

Queensland Maroons 1980s
Bulldogs 2002

They beat the record for the most consecutive wins by winning 17 matches in a row.

It is because it is just the bulldogs

This was the year and team that JT debuted in.

Sydney Roosters 2002-2004

Back to back grand finals 2018-2019

At the minute just as good as st Helens an Wigan

they are the best team I’ve ever known

Up the Roosters we won the 2018 Premiship

Parramatta 81-86

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

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.

Go eels! They may not have the most wins, but they are still a great team, my team

The names in that all star backline were some of the best ever to grace a footy field bar NONE!

North Queensland Cowboys 2015

They should be like 3rd or 2nd

They are awesome

Best team ever

Won premeiership

Widnes Vikings 1978-1979
Hull FC 1914

Had the first superstar of the game Billy Batten and others like Harrison

Best team ever the mighty black and whites

Great team underestimated

Good team should be higher

Wests Tigers 2005

Well balanced side of Maori and true blue websites.

Benji Marshal, what a boss

Warrington Wolves 2013

Only team never to be relegated from top flight uk rugby league! WARRINGTON.. at position 26?

We all hate wigan

Its our year

Newcastle Knights 1990's
