Top Ten Rugby League Teams of All Time
The Top Ten
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
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!
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
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
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
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
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.
Aussie are the best in the world by far
That are the best
2016 squad is better though.
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
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
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
A team with the greatest player ever ( Albert goldthorpe) and the terrible six would topple even Australia
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.
It is because it is just the bulldogs
This was the year and team that JT debuted in.
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
#EASTS ARE THE BEST
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!
They should be like 3rd or 2nd
They are awesome
Best team ever
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
Well balanced side of Maori and true blue websites.
Benji Marshal, what a boss
Only team never to be relegated from top flight uk rugby league! WARRINGTON.. at position 26?
We all hate wigan
Its our year
The worst team
The best team
2 from 2 in grand finals
