Keith Mason spent 14 years in the sport of rugby league.
He started out at Wakefield Trinity making 23 appearances in two seasons before a brief stint with Melbourne Storm.
After this, he returned to Super League with St Helens making 63 appearances in three years helping them win the League Leaders’ Shield in 2005.
In 2006, he joined Huddersfield Giants where he would make the most appearances of his career with 149 made for the West Yorkshire club until 2012. He then rounded out his career at Castleford Tigers.
Thus, Mason has played with plenty of great players but today has named the greatest Super League player he has ever seen.
Today, we asked on social media “Who are the three greatest players to play in Super League?” and Mason answered with Jamie Lyon.
The former Manly Sea Eagles centre spent two years in Super League and was exceptional turning his time at St Helens where he played alongside Mason winning the Man of Steel prior to helping St Helens win the treble in 2006 at the end of his two year stint at Knowsley Road.
