As the season draws to a close, the debate rages on.
People are wondering who will make the top six and who will avoid the crash as the fifth to 12th place spots are left up in the air.
But other questions are also beginning to emerge, such as who will win the Man of Steel and make the Super League Dream Team. So today we try to predict what this year’s Dream Team will look like at the end of the season.
Back: Jai Field
He was always going to be Wigan full-back despite the form of men like Jack Welsby and Tui Lolohea. Field was the superman of the Super League in 2022 and the star of the competition conjuring up many magical moments. He also has 17 tries to his name and 18 assists for 35 tries in total.
Wingers: Bevan French and Ken Sio
With 24 tries most of which have come on the wing, Bevan French needs to take a place on the wing despite preferring to play at the back. His seven tries against Hull FC make him a certainty there, which is tough on Tommy Makinson who could miss through injury, while Ash Handley – the league’s top scorer – hasn’t no more luck. However, like the Frenchman, 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 the Frenchman.
Centres: Ricky Leutele and Tim Lafai
Tim Lafai produced one of the greatest individual performances of all time against St Helens as he devastated the Champions almost single-handedly. Powerful runner and excellent unloader, he is perhaps the signing of the season. Very similar to Lafai, Leutele has used his strength to devastate defenses all season and has turned the Giants into a real force this year.
Half-back: Brodie Croft and Jonny Lomax
Completing the Salford Red Devils trio on this side, as 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. Possibly the best player in the league and certainly one of the most influential, he took the Saints back to first place in 2022.
Props: Alex Walmsley and Patrick Mago
If not for an injury, Chris Hill would have made this squad, but instead we’re going for Patrick Mago. Another off-season signing, he revolutionized the Wigan pack and was 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 down the middle.
Hooker: Danny Levi
Another signing who arrived and gave his team a massive boost, Danny Levi was a great signing providing pace through the middle and an added advantage.
Second rowers: Chris McQueen and Liam Farrell
Chris McQueen has been a try-scoring machine in 2022. He’s the league’s best try with 13 goals this season and his power and pace have been a key part of the Giants’ offense, even helping the Giants midfield to become one of the most formidable in the league. . He’s joined by the ever-green Liam Farrell who’s also no stranger to a tryout with 11 and still a hard worker.
Loose Attacker: Morgan Knowles
Much like Walmsley and Lomax, Morgan Knowles became the league’s best player in his role and despite fine seasons from Joe Westerman, Luke Yates, Cameron Smith and others, Knowles would retain his position in the Dream Team forward.
