Is there (or has there been) anyone in the NRL or SL with a better tries:games ratio?


The only player I can think of from the modern era that comes close would be Vainikolo at Bradford with 152 appearances and 149 tries

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

I think you can build a pretty good case for numerous players, I would say the OP is very much baiting by saying nobody comes close.

Try tallies are all well and good but can just highlight the strength of the team/ability to get their winger in than truely judge how good the winger is. Eden at Cas is a great example of this, we know from Solomona previously that playing left wing for Cas gets you plenty of tries so it’s more the team than the individual. Would Eden get near his numbers at other clubs?

Plus try tallies are only one aspect of playing wing, granted it’s a key one but you need to do more than just finish off tries

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