Predicting the 2022 Super League Dream Team including Wigan Warriors, St Helens and Huddersfield Giants stars

As the season draws to a close, debate is raging on.

People are asking who will make the top six and who will avoid the drop as the places from fifth to 12th are left up in the air.

But other questions are beginning to emerge as well such as who will take home the Man of Steel as well as make the Super League Dream Team. So today we’re taking a stab at the latter predicting what this year’s Dream Team will look like come the end of the season.

Fullback: Jai Field
It was always going to be Wigan’s fullback despite the form of men like Jack Welsby and Tui Lolohea. Field has been the Super League superman in 2022 and the star of the competition conjuring up plenty of magic moments. He also has 17 tries to his name and 18 try assists to 35 try involvements overall.

Wingers: Bevan French and Ken Sio
With 24 tries most of which have come on the wing, Bevan French has to take a spot on the wing despite the fact he prefers to play fullback. His seven try haul against Hull FC makes him a certainty in this spot which is harsh on Tommy Makinson who could miss out due to injury whilst Ash Handley – the league’s leading metre making – is also unlucky. However, like French, you can’t argue with Ken Sio who like last year has scored tries for fun with 21 so far this season which is second only to French.

Centres: Ricky Leutele and Tim Lafai
Tim Lafai produced one of the all time best individual performances against St Helens as he devastated the Champions almost single handed. A powerful runner and a great offloader, he’s perhaps the signing of the season. Very similar to Lafai, Leutele has used his force to devastate defences all season and has turned the Giants into a real force this year.

Halfbacks: Brodie Croft and Jonny Lomax
Completing the Salford Red Devils trio in this side, like Lafai Brodie Croft has been one of the signings of the season this term. His running game makes him the manifestation of a highlight reel and he has brought the best out of Salford this season. Meanwhile, Jonny Lomax is Jonny Lomax. Perhaps the league’s best player and certainly one of the most influential, he’s lead Saints back to top spot in 2022.

Props: Alex Walmsley and Patrick Mago
If not for injury Chris Hill would have made this side but instead we’re going for Patrick Mago. Another off-season signing, he’s revolutionised Wigan’s pack and been an attacking threat due to his power and offloading ability. As for Alex Walmsley, he’s been the league’s best prop for years and continues to lead the way for the Champions in the middle.

Hooker: Danny Levi
Another signing who has come in and given their team a massive boost, Danny Levi has been a great signing providing pace down the middle and an extra edge.

Second-Rowers: Chris McQueen and Liam Farrell
Chris McQueen has been a try scoring machine in 2022. He’s the league’s leading try scoring forward with 13 this season and his power and pace has been a key fixture in the Giants attack even helping the Giants middle become one of the most formidable in the league. He’s joined by the ever green Liam Farrell who also is no stranger to a try with 11 and always a hard worker.

Loose-Forward: Morgan Knowles
Much like Walmsley and Lomax, Morgan Knowles has become the best player in the league in his role and despite great seasons from Joe Westerman, Luke Yates, Cameron Smith and others, Knowles will keep his position in the Dream Team at loose-forward.
