Most Appearances in the English Rugby League Super League Dream Team: The All-Star Dream Team

Each year the English Rugby League chooses a “Dream Team” of the best players in each position for that Super League season.  This year it is the 20th Super League Grand Final and the 22nd such  Dream Team (the first was in 1996) and I thought it would be a good time to look at which players have been selected most times in each position.  This gives a Dream Team of Dream Teams which looks like this.  The dates show the years of the first and last selections for the team.

  1. FULL BACK Kris Radlinski (Wigan) 5 selections from 1998 – 2002

2.  RIGHT WING Jason Robinson (Wigan) 5  from 1996 – 2000

3.  CENTRE George Carmont (Wigan) 3 from 2008 – 2012

4. CENTRE Keith Senior (Leeds) 5 from 2002 – 2010

Positions 3 and 4 are both centres and have been slightly interchangeable in the Dream Teamm selection.  Carmont and Senior have both been picked at 3 and 4 but I show the total selections in either centre position.

5. LEFT WING Ryan Hall (Leeds) 4 from 2009 – 2014

6. STAND OFF Iestyn Harris (St.Helens) 2 in 1998 and 1999, Danny McGuire (Leeds) 2 in 2004 and 2006, Sam Tomkins (Wigan) 2 in 2009 and 2010, Danny Brough (Huddersfield) 2 in 2013 and 2015

Note Sam Tomkins has also appeared three times in the Dream Team at Full Back (number 1)

7. SCRUM HALF Adrian Lam (Wigan) 3 from 2001 – 2003, Rob Burrow (Leeds) 3 between 2005 – 2008

8. PROP Terry O’Connor (Wigan) 4  from 1996 – 2002

The Props are numbers 8 and 10.  My Props have been picked in both positions.  The totals show number of appearances at either Prop position in the Dream Team selections.

9. HOOKER Keiron Cunningham (St.Helens) 7 from 1996 – 2008

10. PROP Jamie Peacock (Leeds) 2007 to 2015 6  from (He also made 5 appearances in the Second Row)

11. SECOND ROW Jamie Peacock (Leeds) 5 from 2000 – 2005

12. SECOND ROW Ben Westwood (Warrington) 4  from 2008 – 2012

13. LOOSE FORWARD Andrew Farrell (Wigan) 6 from 1996 – 2003, Sean O’Loughlin 6 from 2010 – 2017

Most appearances in any position are 11 by Jamie Peacock.
