    RLW have named a team of the best players never to win a premiership which is subjective to say the least. Some I believe they have right, others are up for debate.

    But can anyone spot their biggest mistake?? Hint: One named player DID win a premiership.

    FG - Garry Jack
    WG - Nathan Blacklock
    CE - Steve Rogers
    CE - Andrew Ettingshausen
    WG - Kerry Boustead
    FE - Trent Barrett
    HB - Stacey Jones
    PR - Steve Roach
    HK - Noel Kelly
    PR - Les Boyd
    SR - David Barnhill
    SR - Nathan Hindmarsh
    LK - Wayne Pearce

    Bench - Gary Larson, Greg Florimo, Ben Elias, John Donnelly

    Correct Peter C.

    David Barnhill played from the bench in Canberra's 1990 premiership team (he wore #16 in the GF win over Penrith). Paul Sironen or even someone like Gavin Miller I can accept. But this is supposed to be a team of players who never won a premiership.

    RLW at its finest.....

    Adam Blair and Israel Folau should be on the list.

    I'd have Sirro ahead of both Barnhill and Hindmarsh....and by some distance.

    And given RLW love affair with the Hayne Plane shouldn't he be there.

    As I said, the team is subjective to say the least.

    Where is Roy Bull? Generally acknowledged as the best prop forward of the 1950's and one of the best ever. He never won a premiership.

    Paul Sironen, Bob Lindner, Tim Brasher, Gavin Miller, Peter Jackson, Kevin Hastings. All quality players who never won a premiership.

    Hopefully Mundine comes out and says he's the greatest ever to not win one.

    He's the greatest athlete Australia's ever produced. Just ask him, he'll tell ya lol.

    Bradman? Brabham? Clarke? Fraser? Nothings. The Man has it all (according to him).

    For the record, IMO the reason Mundine was hardly ever picked for representative teams in rugby league was not because he is Aboriginal. Its because those like Laurie Daley, Brad Fittler and Kevin Walters were much better players.

    Mundine was a better than average first grader but far from being up with the best of his generation. He had a lot of flair, but one serious flaw in his game - hogging the ball.

    I used to get RLW but since they dropped the decent *game preview/review, player rating/team list, & the tipping,
    it's like a Sheila's gossip mag now.

    Don't worry he'll remind you of how he dominated the Sharks in the '97 Superleague GF.

    I'm sure he would, but second tier competitions don't count.

    All those Manly and Roosters players in there must've been pretty good at premiership dodging. Not too many play for a substantial amount of time at either club without accidentally picking up a win.

    Ian Roberts. Robbed in 1995. Should have played in 1996 when Ridge came back from his self imposed strike.

    Kevin Junee? Wasn't he at Easts when Manly won in 72-73, then he was Manly when Easts won in 74-75.
