    1. John Sattler
    His heroic effort to lead South Sydney to their grand final win over Manly in 1970 after having his jaw smashed in the opening minutes is enshrined in the game’s folklore.

    2. Alan Prescott
    The Great Britain captain played 77 minutes of the second Test against Australia in Brisbane in 1958 with a broken arm. Prescott refused to have a pain-killing needle at halftime, instead returning to the field to steer the tourists to a remarkable 25-18 victory.

    3. Andrew Johns
    In one of the game’s more celebrated stories, Andrew Johns took his place in Newcastle’s grand final line-up in 1997 only days after leaving hospital where he was being treated for a punctured lung. Ignoring medical advice, Johns declared himself fit and went on to inspire victory when he sent winger Darren Albert over for the match-winner.
