Garry Schofield: My Ultimate Team

Full back: Iestyn Harris 

Sheer quality in positional play and lethal attacking quality with a great ability to read the game too.

Wingers: Leslie Vainikolo and Ryan Hall 

Two powerhouses of wingers, both with blistering pace to match. Their respective try scoring records speak for themselves

Centres: Gary Connolly and Paul Newlove 

These two could create tries for their wingers and also score tries themselves with pace and quality in defence

Stand-off: Danny McGuire

Danny's support play is sensational, his try scoring record speaks for itself, still top of the all-time Super League charts. Later in his career i think he became a better stand-off, using his creativity to often devastating effect.  

Scrum half: Lee Briers 

Creatively brilliant, a pure quality kicking game, a great leader and talker on the pitch with accurate goal kicking too.

Props: Adrian Morley and James Graham

Adrian Morley - simply the best in Super League at his peak as well as being the best in NRL during his time with the Roosters.

James Graham - He's an all-round front rower, tough ball skills and always ready to be a leader

Hooker: Keiron Cunningham 

Keiron had everything. His all-round game was sensational and a match winner too with many important tries at right time in the big games

Second Row: Paul Sculthorpe and Andy Farrell

What can you say about these two that hasn't already been said many times before? Both were just sensational rugby league players and great leaders too.  

Loose forward: Kevin Sinfield 

Simply the leader of my team. I have said that Leeds would not have won all their trophies during his time if it wasn't for their captain sensational and his all round game.
