  1. Black Toast Forever TG Bullpitt

    The world needs more Cooper Vuna.
  2. Howe JHF Howe

    Jason Robinson surely
  3. Freddy MJ Johns

    Dally Messenger
  4. MrPrez CM Dyer

    Yup, top shout.
  5. Weeman27bob BE Force

    Is Jason Robinson the only ex-league player to have won a union world cup?
  6. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Sonny Bill Williams played in the last final and won. Albeit for a couple of minutes.
  7. BoyBlunder BOY Blunder

    Yeah for sure :wub:
  8. The Boy Brumby ZJ Brumby

    Yup. It's not close either. Without doubt the best league to union convert.

    Brad Thorn played all of it, didn't he?
  9. BigGuns DA Astele

    Brad Thorn yes.

    Eion Crossan no.
  10. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Thorn did it all didn't he?

    League Premiership, Origin, Test

    Union Premiership, World Cup?, Tri Nations, Bledisloe and pretty sure he won a title in France?
  11. BigGuns DA Astele

    He had longevity in his career also, playing very physical positions in both code. Such a champ.
  12. Rego RS Hutchinson

    He's won the Heineken Cup and the Super Rugby title as well. Add in a couple of NPC titles and the Ranfurly Shield.

    It's Thorn that's the most successful by far.
  13. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Did he win the League world cup at all?
  14. morgieb MC Burridge

    Don't think so, though neither did Robinson IIRC.
  15. morgieb MC Burridge

    How is Thorn still playing well at his age?
  16. Black Toast Forever TG Bullpitt

  17. Frizzed WC Welker

    Lesley Vainikolo.
  18. Freddy MJ Johns

    Andy Farrell worth a shout.
  19. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    Folau missing from the OP but he did convert to AFL first.
  20. Freddy MJ Johns

    Folau is in the OP.
