In no particular order, here are my choices...

Stuart Fielden

Best known for his aggression, Stuart Fielden never took a backward step. He made his Bradford debut at just 18 and when his talent was quickly uncovered, he was fast-tracked into the Great Britain squad. Fielden was described as ‘a special talent’ by his former head coach Brian Noble and was named the best forward in the world in 2005. Now recognised worldwide and having won every domestic honour in the game, Wigan signed him for a world record transfer fee in 2006. Throughout his whole career, Fielden was a feared opponent and his old teammate Lee Radford admitted he would often ‘put it on them’ in training.

Andy Farrell

This man defines the word tough. Andy Farrell is a Wigan and Great Britain Rugby League legend and amassed well over 3,000 points in a glittering career. The goal-kicking loose forward was a natural born leader and in 1996 was named Great Britain’s youngest ever captain at just 21 – winning #Super League’s #Man Of Steel award later that year. Farrell was not only strong and durable, but he possessed superb natural skill and was one of the most talented players in the game for just short of two decades.

Paul Sculthorpe

What a player! #Paul Sculthorpe enjoyed a trophy-laden career and was the leader of a dominant St Helens team through the late 90’s and early noughties.

The two-time Man of Steel epitomised everything you would want from your captain and would never leave anything out on the field. He played 30 times for his country and in 2001 put in one of the greatest performances of any Great Britain forward in the first test victory against Australia. Sculthorpe, who also possessed superb skill and speed, was an exceptional all-round Rugby League player.

Jamie Peacock

Super League’s most successful player, Jamie Peacock is a legend of the competition. A major part of the glory days at Bradford and Leeds, ‘JP’ consistently played at the top of one of the toughest sports for two decades. Durable, resilient and at times unstoppable, the 2003 Man of Steel was frighteningly strong and many will never forget the way he floored Willie Mason in the 2006 Tri-Nations. In an astonishing career, Peacock played well over 500 games for club and country and it’s unlikely we will ever see his like again.

Adrian Morley

A dominant forward in Super League and the NRL, Adrian Morley is another legend of the sport.

He was the leader of the Leeds Rhinos’ pack for five years before making the move Down Under, where the Aussies looked to target the new pommie. However ‘Moz’ didn’t just hold his own in the NRL, he became one of the competitions’ stand-out players and a household name. He returned to Super League in 2005 and had success with both Bradford and Warrington. Morley never lost his aggression or power throughout an incredible career and retired as one of the sports iconic names in 2015.
