When to first game 82 or 83 so likes if John holmes David ward John Atkinson still around but past their prime. A few players no doubts all time greats but only twilight of their careers at Leeds, Andy Gregory best British scrum half i ever saw , but one average season with us, Ellery still Good but not the dominant player he was at Bradford and Wigan, Tunks and Grothe best prop and winger in the world but a brief spell.

1. Harris
2. Scot Donald
3. Kevin Iro
4. Keith Senior
5. Ryan Hall
6. Garry Schofield
7. Danny Mcguire
8. Roy Powell
9. Danny Buderos
10. JP
11. Gareth Ellis
12. Adrian Morley
13. Kevin Sinfield (captain)

14. Robb Burrow
15. Ali
16. Lee Crooks
17. Barrie Mac

Close but no cigar, Hugh waddle, Paul Dixon, Carl Ablett, Carl Gibson, David Creaser (injury prone) ET Marcus Bai. Ellery

Coach not sure it matters but would go for Tony Smith.

Could easily put Harris in at 1. I’ve gone
For an impact bench.

Agree with Arthur and Marty about Tony Currie, he would probably be 4th choice centre behind Les Dyl in his pomp for mine. Watkins would also be well in the mix at his best.
A few other shout outs for me would be Mark Laurie who made a massive impact in 83/84.
Going back further Alan Smith was a brilliant defensive winger and sound finisher, I did not see much of Ray Batten but was class, Bob Haigh was the same, very smart player like Liam Farrell. Graham Eccles was tremendous in the 70’s. Roy Powell another favourite.

To be fair Terry Webb was really good in his 1st season at Leeds.

He was. And we actually won a trophy (other than a Yorkshire Cup). It was a long time between drinks.

I still cannot see past les Dyl being swatted like a school kid by Mal Meninga, cannot take him seriously as a alleged great player. Watkins could gave been the greatest but lacked conviction and aggression just like Newlove, hopefully going forward Newman as that

I certainly am. I saw Terry Webb about 3 years ago, he looked very well was out with some old Hunslet players and Wardy and a few others.
He was good in that first season, used to smoke like a chimney.

Meninga was a bit special and Les was a long way over the hill by then. For mine Les was excellent and very quick upto about 1978 but his decline was pretty dramatic considering he was not that old.

Bit like Steve Pitchford, Les was at his peak around 76/77 for mine.
