Top Ten Rugby League Teams of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Wigan 1987-1996

Greatest trophy winning run ever. Best english side ever. Could beat any other team.

You poms are so silly, Super League teams are rubbish, don't deserve to be in the top 20 - eyah

Read the history... Says it all!

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.

Yeah and now shown you Aussie pricks who are best again.
Wigan Warriors CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD 2017.

2 St George Dragons 1956-1966

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.

11 premierships in a row says it all

How can they not be number 1 after 11 premierships in a row

You can't win 11 premierships in a row and not not be known as the best.

3 Brisbane Broncos 1990s

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.

Simply the best although they have lost the title of the league's flagship team in recent years to the Melbourne storm

The all time best Broncos team would not have scored a point against the St George Teams of the early 60's.

Saints beat them in 2 challenge matches

4 Leeds Rhinos 2007-12

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.

Leeds rhinos are the best rugby team in the world! No teams are better than leeds rhinos!

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.

Best team in modern era when it counts.

5 Melbourne Storm - 2000s - 2010s

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

4 Premierships before even 20 years old

6 Queensland Maroons 2006 - 2013

7 consecutive State of Origins winners.. Talk no more..

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

7 Manly Warringah Sea-Eagles 1980's

Even now Manly Warringah Sea-Eagles are the most consistent and best.

1995 team was nearly unbeatable and it is nearly a crime they slipped up against Canterbury in the Grand Final.

My favorite team and I think should be in top 5

Because they have the best team in history

8 Canberra Raiders 1987-1995

Why are they only 18th? Should at last be top ten - jackyboy

Show me any team greater than the individuals with cameos below...

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

Meninga, Daley, Steward, Todd, Walters, Stewart, Clyde, Mullins... say no more...

9 Australia Kangaroos 2013 V 1 Comment
10 St Helen's 2004 - 2011

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

Best team in the world in 2006 shame they don't have the quality of players they once had, but neither does any other british team these days

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

One of the best of all time.
Shame the english game has become so poor, and unfortunately fast becoming more boring than Union

18 Parramatta 81-86

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!
