For me, the ones that stand out in no particular order and not including this season are;-

David Fairleigh, Jamie Lyon

George Carmont, Pat Richards

Ali Lauatiti, David Furner

A couple of other Saints player, they seemed to get the best out of Imports and dejected Wigan players over the years.

cant believe nobody mentioned Alfie langer, the only player to play origin whist being a super league player. and a queensland legend fullstop. maybe not at his best for Warrington, but certainly a far better player than Barba.
Langer menzies Andrew johns Danny Buderos are by far and away the highest profile and best Australian players to play in Super league nobody else is held in such esteem out there.

And you wanna break our walls down
And you wanna destroy
Well you go to hell

Langer was effectively thought retired when he joined Wire. The fact he played Origin was entirely down to Queensland having virtually no options and Bennett needing something to perk the whole team up. BTW Buderus was not schooled by Cameron Smith in Smith's early days, it was very much the other way round as Buderus played in a NSW side that generally dominated Origin. Again though, by the time he joined Leeds it was seen as retirement.

What we'll never see again is short-term signings of the absolute best Aussies like we had in the 80s - Kenny, Sterling, Meninga, Lewis etc. Even if we moved back to winter rugby no stars would do it. Its a shame, it certainly brightened up RL in England, and on the flip side some of our best players got really good experience in Australia.
