Ranking the five best attacking partnerships in Super League history

Right now there is one of the best attacking partnerships in Super League history plying their trade in Super League.

But where do they rank amongst the finest and most exciting attacking partnerships in Super League history?

5. Ryan Hall and Keith Senior – Leeds Rhinos
One of the best ever centre and wing partnerships in Super League. These two conspired to defeat St Helens in the 2008 Grand Final. Meanwhile, in 2009 Hall scored over 30 Super League tries as the two made their way into the Super League Dream Team. Between them they scored 44 tries that season and then 41 in 2010. They continued their form in 2011 till Keith Senior picked up a career ending injury.

4. Shontayne Hape and Lesley Vainikolo – Bradford Bulls
Before the Hall and Senior combination, it was Hape and Vainikolo tearing up Super League. The two combined to create a double hat-trick for Vainikolo in 2005 a record only recently topped. The two guided the Bulls to consecutive Grand Finals at the start of the century.

3. Leon Pryce and Sean Long – St Helens
Halfbacks as St Helens won the treble, the two tore teams apart routinely in 2006. They were at the heart of this brilliant attack which is registered over 900 points. In the Grand Final, Leon Pryce also conjured up one of the Grand Final’s greatest ever tries.

2. Jai Field and Bevan French – Wigan Warriors
These two were outstanding in 2023. They scored over 50 tries between them last year and Jai Field was one of the top five assisters. They combined again and again. In the Challenge Cup Final and throughout the season they combined to create some amazing moments and tries.

1. Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow – Leeds Rhinos
The definitive Super League partnership. In 2003 as they combined in their semi-final clash against Wigan, Eddie Hemmings said on Sky Sports, “McGuire and Burrow, mark those names down because they will be huge in the future.” The pair would link up again and again in the seasons that followed as they made Leeds Rhinos the dominant side in the league. One of their best moments together came against Warrington Wolves in 2011 when they defied the odds to book their place in the Grand Final despite finishing fifth.
