I think you might need to check Offiah's stats. More than a try a game across an entire career!

If were going to delve into history, then Brian Bevan outscores Offiah in number of tries scored and average tries per game.
However, it's difficult to compare one against the other as its apples and pears. Safe to say they were the best of their particular era.
Harder to say who the best winger currently is though.

Greg Eden has 48 tries in 43 appearances for Castleford.
Is there (or has there been) anyone in the NRL or SL with a better tries:games ratio?

Denny Solomona?

Yes him and Justin carney had similar records at Cas.
"I'm sorry, but I would hope that we would beat Cas with a 1 day turnaround."

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.

Not in SL or the NRL though (ie the modern game).
Undoubtedly the best winger of all time in my opinion though.

You win only based solely on the criteria of 43 games. However, that doesn't justify the title of the greatest winger of all time.

I thought Holmes was a full back for the sharks who plays wing for Australia so as he’s not a winger then by default he can’t be the best in the world.

Carney isn’t far off with 63 tries in 62 games. Not quite as good in terms of games:tries ratio though.

Sorry wasn’t clear. I think Offiah is the best winger of all time.

740 tries in 620 games whilst at Warrington would suggest fans of Brian Bevan might disagree.

Brian Beavn 796 tries in total in his career. Original inductee in the Rugby League Hall of Fame, and named in the Aussie Team of the Century in 2008 despite having played the vast majority of his career over here. A toothless bald spindly heavily bandaged ghost that destroyed defences week after week. THE greatest winger of all time.
