The 2023 regular Super League season is over with Wigan Warriors securing top spot, Warrington Wolves sneaking into the top six and the play offs and Hull KR taking fourth spot at the 11th hour..
This came after a sensational end to the Super League season which embodied the sensational season we have had the pleasure of enjoying this year.
It has been full of star’s and players performing out of their skins and that makes selecting a Dream Team very difficult.
Tonight the official Dream Team will be revealed but we thought we would have a stab at selecting our own.
Fullback: Jack Welsby (St Helens)
Jack Welsby has been named in the Dream Team as a centre and a stand off but not yet in his best position but 2023 might be his year. He has competition from the likes of Jai Field and Ryan Brierley would be very deserving but Welsby’s consistency has to see him named.
Wingers: Tom Johnstone (Catalans Dragons) & Josh Charnley (Leigh Leopards)
Two of the three try scoring machines in Super League are naturally going to make the Dream Team but one has to miss out. For us it is Abbas Miski simply because of the consistency of the other two throughout the entire campaign,
Centres: Adam Keighran (Catalans Dragons) & Jake Wardle (Wigan Wardle)
Another Catalans star will also feature in the shape of Adam Keighran who has proven to be perhaps the signing of the season. Another top signing should also feature in the shape of Jake Wardle. The centre has been brilliant especially in the second half of the season scoring tries for fun.
Halfbacks: Bevan French (Wigan Warriors) & Lachlan Lam (Leigh Leopards)
It might be controversial naming Bevan French at six, French has proven to be an attacking weapon in the halves and has led the Warriors to top spot. He is joined by Lachlan Lam who has had a sensational season from start to finish with the Leopards.
Props: Tom Amone (Leigh Leopards) & Paul Vaughan (Warrington Wolves)
His teammate Tom Amone has been equally superb and perhaps the best forward this season and deserves his spot in the team. As does Paul Vaughan who has been gaining metres for fun all season long.
Hooker: Edwin Ipape (Leigh Leopards)
Another Leigh player, Edwin Ipape was always going to take Super League by storm and he has done just that tearing teams apart from acting half thanks to his explosivity from acting halfback.
Second-Rowers: James Bell (St Helens) & Liam Farrell (Wigan Warriors)
James Bell has been one of the surprise packages this season proving to be one of St Helens’ most important players either featuring at second row or loose forward. He is joined by Mr Consistent Liam Farrell. The second row is one of the all time greats and has shown that again in 2023.
Loose-Forward: John Asiata (Leigh Leopards)
Who else was it going to be? The heart beat of Leigh’s success in 2023. He makes metres galore but it is the way he knits together their attack which makes him a real stand out.
